That gets you the 1.0.23 drivers but you are still on the 1.0.21 alsa-utils
- in short, some new devices appeared in /proc/asound/NVidia, but still no
cake in mythtv nor in xbmc.

Enabling that repo and update/upgrade got me four new packages (alsa-base,
libasound2, alsa-utils and linux-sound-base) and now all is working in both
mythtv and xbmc.
For those searching this at a later date, myth's AudioOutputDevice is now
set to ALSA:hdmi:CARD=NVidia,DEV=1 and XBMC is set to Custom with the
custom device specified as hdmi:CARD=NVidia,DEV=1
