    I have the exact same problem but my device is 0,7. Did you end up finding a solution to make it work?

    In sound preferences, under the hardware tab, try going to the "Profile:" drop down menu and select it from there. If there is no "HDMI" option available, look for the Gnome ALSA application in the software centre. Restart, then try again. It should be there now. This worked for me!

    Re: 11.04 HDMI no sound

    Well right now my hdmi sound works fine in 11.04 after reinstalling the sound modules (sudo aptitude reinstall linux-generic) source

    But when I was running 10.10 I had to set my hdmi as default in my .asoundrc file

    If I remember correctly this is what I had to do
    I made a file in my /home/userName/ directory called .asoundrc
    Code:
    nano ~/.asoundrc
    then i added the following line

    Code:
    pcm.!default "plughw:1,3"
    just sub the "1,3" with what works for you in aplay

    Im just going by memory here so if that dont work just try googling .asoundrc hdmi default Lots of results

    Re: 11.04 HDMI no sound

    Hi there,

    I wondered if you guys could help me out. I've got a Zbox ID41+ hooked up to my Sony HDTV over HDMI, but aplay isn't playing any sounds through the TV even.

    Here is the output from aplay -l:

    Code:
    zbox@zbox:~$ aplay -l
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC888 Analog [ALC888 Analog]

      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    I've tried testing each of the devices:

    Code:
    zbox@zbox:~$ aplay -D plughw:1,3 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav        Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono

    zbox@zbox:~$ aplay -D plughw:1,8 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav        Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono
    zbox@zbox:~$ aplay -D plughw:1,9 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav        Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono
    All S/PDIF channels are unmuted in alsamixer and the volume on the TV is set at normal levels.

    Any help appreciated.

    Thanks very much.

    Re: 11.04 HDMI no sound

    dyn4mo, I had the same issue as you. I followed this guide and couldn't here anything playback. Some searching lead me to the following..

    Add this PPA
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get upgrade

    I ran through the play tests again using aplay and found one that worked after updating from the PPA.

    Re: 11.04 HDMI no sound

    I had the similar issue on 11.10.

    Switched to HDMI nr2 and that fixed it.
    Prior to that I have added the psahw into ~/.asounds as described above, but it seems, that it did not make difference, because hte other accounts without it, have sound as well.
