i'm the owner of an "Acer 5920g" Laptop with the following specs:
- Nvidia 8600m GT
- HDMI Port
- afaik. Realtek Sound Chip

i've tried a lot to get the hdmi sound working, but still without 
success. As i can only find "requests for help" for this sound chip, 
perhaps you could help the lost acer 5920 owners and me.

things i've tried yet:
- updated kernel to vanilla ( alsa 1.8a )
- updated alsa to 1.9 ( stable )
- updated alsa to "" ( snapshot from 
14.04.2009 )
- added the followng line to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base: "options 
snd-hda-intel model=auto"

result of aplay -L && aplay -l ist still the same:

aplay -l
