Default Re: HDMI and ALSA with GTS 450

no sound using aplay or speaker-test

aplay would simply hang after the following:
[root@matrix ~]# aplay -Dplug:hdmi /usr/lib64/
Playing WAVE '/usr/lib64/' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 11025 Hz, Mono

speaker-test output the following error:
[root@matrix ~]# speaker-test -Dplug:hdmi -c2


Playback device is plug:hdmi
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels
Using 16 octaves of pink noise
Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz)
Buffer size range from 64 to 16384
Period size range from 32 to 8192
Using max buffer size 16384
Periods = 4
was set period_size = 4096
was set buffer_size = 16384
 0 - Front Left
Write error: -5,Input/output error
xrun_recovery failed: -5,Input/output error
Transfer failed: Operation not permitted

Note: speaker-test would hang (similar to aplay) after "0 - Front Left" gets printed, if i change argument "-c2" to "-c6"
