I too have not been able to get HDMI sound out of my video card in Linux
(PCLOS) altho it works in XP. I had a lot of intended help from the PCLOS
forum, but nothing worked. I was interested in your posting of the dmesg
command.  I tried it and got this:

[doug@Linux1 ~]$ dmesg | grep audio
usbcore: registered new interface driver snd-usb-audio

That has nothing at all to do with the HDMI output on the GeForce (NVidia)
card, nor anything to do with the on-board sound that works fine locally.
It refers to a web-cam with a mic that I have connected to the usb port.
My kernel is 3.2.18, (32 bit) the latest available for this distro.

If you have any ideas, I might go back and mess with it a little more, but
I really just want the HDMI output to watch video on my TV set, and I can
do that in XP.  It's just a pain!

Oh--one other thing:  I absolutely refuse to get involved with Pulse Audio.
I have lost two very bad bouts with it, and I refuse to go another round!
