How about ESD? Is static electricity a problem where you did the work?
Mythtv frontend setup sees ALSA:hdmi:CARD=NVidia,DEV=1, connected to
the tv, and it works. HDA NVidia, HDMI 1. Supports up to 2.0 (LPCM)
It also finds ALSA:hdmi:CARD=NVidia,DEV=0, with no connection
detected; and some Pulse options.
Possible loss of the non-hdmi options is inconvenient, but it seems
strange that vlc and smplayer don't work via hdmi when myth does.
I'll hunt for more settings.
Are you trying to play them through the hdmi connection. I vaguely
recall something about hdmi, that it is not a general audio output
device, but specific to audio to the hdmi channel.
If worst comes to worst, there are cheap USB audio devices available on
ebay. I bought one for about a dollar US, and the audio quality is
fine. It's limited, though, with only line in and line out stereo.
Or maybe you have an old audio card laying around.
