Can someone who has gotten HDMI audio to work help out here with the version
numbers required as a minimum on alsa and nvidia drivers to get HDMI audio

Specifically, I just upgraded alsa and have version 1.0.16.  Is this good
enough for HDMI?
Why did anyone have to upgrade the nvidia driver?

I am trying to put together a wiki for digital sound that works and I don't
have HDMI so there is a limit on what I can test.

Thanks for the help.
