As promised, attached is the modified EDID file I use for my Sony KDL-52XBR6
to disable the fake HDMI audio signal produced by my nVidia 7300 thus
allowing the TV to use the analog audio inputs. I use a stock xorg.conf file
as created by the nvidia utilities with the addition of a single
'UseCustomEDID' line in the 'Device' section. For reference, the relevant
parts of my xorg.conf are as follows...
