Thanks.  I will try that in my alsa config (I might have already tried
it, but it was 2am...).

I tried a direct HDMI connection between the TV and the Dish VIP211,
and video and audio were just fine.

I tried connecting a Zotac ION box to the TV via HDMI, but they refuse
to talk to each other, even at BIOS startup time.  There's another
thread here about that, suggesting HDCP problems, so I can see that
I'm in for even more fun.
