Just an update:

After compiling the 1.0.24 libraries I renamed the asound.conf I had
created and rebooted.

After doing a scan I was able to get:

ALSA:hdmi:CARD=NVidia_1,DEV=3 [device supports up to 5.1 (digital
output,AC3,DTS,)], which didn't work before, to work.

Of course, ditching my asound.conf has stopped hdmi sound working in
Firefox, but I realized that this machine's supposed to be my PVR and
not another desktop so perhaps I should just stop fiddling.
