Default Re: DVI -> HDMI no sound.. how to resolve?

Thanks for the post Rich.

I've done exactly that but with some mixed results when using just a regular xorg.conf with my dektop LCD I can launch for instance Rythmbo and it boots fast and works fine. With my custom EDID the same application locks up my machine so something must be wrong?

I used the application at to modify the edid.bin other than that I just modified the xorg.conf I'll post in case you might see something.
