I did try installing the alsa-driver package as per your previous email 
but I recevied undefined symbol issues on reboot. I dont have that 
kernel booted at the moment so I can't copy them here.

As for the distribution question, as much as I love gentoo, I am 
beginning to think that it might be time to change for this project. 
I've got the mythbuntu CD here ready to roll, there is only one other 
task I will have to take into account. I have a PS3 bluetooth remote to 
get working (when it arrives). I have absolutely zero experience with 
bluetooth and afte all this hdmi trouble i'm not looking forward to it :D

Assumimg the audio problem will be easier to solve with another 
distribution, I hope the same will be true for the bluetooth.

Grateful for your opinions on this before I re-install.
