I use the following in my default.pa right under the module-hal-detect line:

load-module module-alsa-sink device=spdif format=s16le rate=44100
channels=2 sink_name=digital

In your case you would update device=spdif to device=hdmi and change
your rate to 48000. You can also change the resampling method in

resample-method = speex-float-4
;resample-method = src-sinc-best-quality

I have the default commented out there and use speex-float-4 for
better quality but higher CPU usage.

Then you'll have to tell Myth to use this sink (pavucontrol?)

Hope this helps.
