cat /proc/asound/devices

aplay -l
aplay -L

(that's little ell and cap ell)

will show you what alsa is looking at HW wise.  I found a myth alsa article, or checklist, or something that was kinda useful.

My first problem was my kernel didnt recogonize the audio hdmi out.  but a kernel upgrade fixed that.  (well, the newer alsa in the newer kernel fixed it).

Then I had to find the right /etc/asound.conf settings, which was googling and trial and error.  In the end I have:

$cat /etc/asound.conf

pcm.!default {
        type plug
        slave.pcm "hdmi"

In myth, I have the audio device set to: "alsa:hdmi"

as an example (this is not my mythbox):
$ aplay -L
    HDA NVidia, VT1708S Analog
    Default Audio Device
    HDA NVidia, VT1708S Analog
    Front speakers
    HDA NVidia, VT1708S Analog
    4.0 Surround output to Front and Rear speakers
    HDA NVidia, VT1708S Analog
    4.1 Surround output to Front, Rear and Subwoofer speakers
    HDA NVidia, VT1708S Analog
    5.0 Surround output to Front, Center and Rear speakers
    HDA NVidia, VT1708S Analog
    5.1 Surround output to Front, Center, Rear and Subwoofer speakers
    HDA NVidia, VT1708S Analog
    7.1 Surround output to Front, Center, Side, Rear and Woofer speakers
    Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)

see anything like that?
