Thanks.
No worries . I cannot really explain why and how the distorted sound was fixed. It seems that, with the workaround patch, I need to make sure both my receiver and TV are already switched on before starting up the mac mini otherwise I cannot get sound.

But the proper patch/solution is already in the current ALSA GIT/daily snapshots. I already created a patch and build a new kernel but have not tried it yet.

I've created a guide how to get HDMI working on the mini (as well as how to install Fedora 13 on the mini). It can be found here

I will report back when I have tried my new kernel with the proper ALSA patch.
