It won't matter which version of ALSA you are using, you won't be able to
get HDMI audio out of your current setup. It's a hardware limitation. From
previous posts, I see you are using an nVidia 6300 video card to supply the
HDMI signal to your TV. As far as I know, there are no 6300's with a digital
audio (SPDIF) input connector. As such, there is no way to get digital audio
into the HDMI stream via that card. That card will only ever output a null
audio signal over HDMI. The best you can do with your current setup is
output video over HDMI and supply the audio to your tv/amp via your sound
card's analog or digital outputs. If you must have audio over HDMI, you
will need to upgrade your video card to something with a digital audio input
and connect the digital output from your sound card to it.
