Red face Re: No audio from HDMI (MCP89 / Geforce 320M): Reason: no connected devices detected

OK, it seems it was a bit premature for me to assume that the patch already made it to ALSA GIT. The updated patch_hdmi.c and patch_nvhdmi.c can be found in ALSA's Takashi Iwai daily alsa-driver snapshot:

Sorry about that.

I just tried booting the mini mac mini and switching on the receiver and my TV at a later time (the mini was just logged in to the desktop). With dmesg I saw the usual HDMI messages but now it found the receiver as connected device and not the TV. Checking /proc/asound/cards/card0/eld#5.0 shows it detected all the supported bit rates and audio encoding properly but I do not have sound.

The TV also thinks it's in 1080i / 60 Hz mode instead of 1080p / 50Hz. Checking Xorg.0.log reveals:

It seems it is important in which order I switch things on, but I can live with that.

BTW after removing the connection between the receiver and TV and plugging it back in things stay the same. I tried various combinations with the mac mini still on and switching off and on the receiver and / or TV. The receiver kept being listed a the connected device.
