Default Re: Disabling sound over HDMI ? SOLVED

This, however, has nasty side effects, so the best course of action (until nvidia implements a driver option) is to use "CustomEDID".
In short, you need to remove the extended block from the EDID you get from your TV.

OK, but wouldn't you think there should be an

Option    "HDMIAudio" "disable"
flag in your xorg.conf file? Or a checkbox in nvidia-settings? We don't know that though. Glad you found a workaround, but I sure hope there are less strenuous means of stopping audio over HDMI for less techno-savy users.
