If that is not working you could check if the terminal shows any error. Also you can check that lib32v4l-0 is installed.

About the sound: open the sound preferences and select HDMI output in the hardware tab. Then you select 5.1 in totem, vlc, gnome-mplayer, etc. and that's it.
ok when i type the command in the terminal i get this... which i don't really understand:

yes the lib32v4l-0 is installed.

also I was about the vlc that settings does not work and on the xbmc still no sound i get a "Failed to initialize the audio device".

Thanks again for your responses, I also want to say that I use the Skype edition 2.2.0.35 Beta... if that helps, I'll try the 11.10 just to see if things are working better.
