I don' think this will be enough. If you look at lspci, there is not a
single mention of HDMI device. I believe (well, at least MCP78S has it
that way) that HDMI device should be listed. If it isn't listed for
discrete graphics, then there is some other way that it must be
I believe that ATI also lists separate device for HDMI audio.
To be precise, my 8200 board has this:
http://pci-ids.ucw.cz/read/PC/10de/0774, and there is a BIOS option to
enable and disable it.
If there isn't a way to get HDMI audio device listed in lspci (BIOS
option or whatever), I don't believe upgrading ALSA will do much here.
