I've been watching this thread with much anticipation as I've had no HDMI audio (or video) since installing the current xbmcbuntu release.
I've tried the above livecd, doesn't work for me. I've set the amp / passthrough to my amp to custom plughw:0,3 as listed in terminal. This is the only setting that gets rid of the failed to initialise audio error when playing a video.
I've checked interfaces are not muted and I've also tried a custom asound.conf in the ETC folder... This is on the acer revo r3610 which hasn't failed me yet.
I'm not sure if this is relevant but video outputs by VGA and audio to an amp via HDMI. this worked well for windows xbmc.
