Then it seems like we need to get the probe_mask option figured out. AFAIK, the 210 is the only card which works without it, and it does mean that addressing ALSA:hdmi doesn't work. But you said that 0xfff2 doesn't work for you? Very odd, as that should force snd_hda_intel to not probe the other codec slots on the chip (the "phantom" devices that muddy things up).
