I've been trying to get HDMI with sound working for the last few days, and I'm a little bit out of ideas. (I've verified that the hardware/Setup works via Windows.)

aplay does not list my HDMI device:

$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 0: ALC662 rev1 Analog [ALC662 rev1 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 1: ALC662 rev1 Digital [ALC662 rev1 Digital]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I've already compiled the alsa drivers (1.0.24) from a snapshot (with --with-oss=no) and added the line

options snd-hda-intel model=auto    # Tried 3stack-dig and 6stack-dig too

to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf. Still, the device does not show up.

If it is important, the HDMI TV is at the moment not configured to be part of the X session (I've tried that to, at least with X restart, and it didn't change anything).

What did I miss?
