Wow, then is the HDMI cable connected inside the device?
Anyway, "IEC958 Playback Switch" should be turned on for HDMI.

Another issue is that HDMI audio is always through the video chip,
thus the audio stuff is also controlled by the video driver.
IIRC, ATI fglrx has a certain level of support for HDMI audio, but not
sure about other drivers.
