With the new graphic card VDPAU is working but no audio over hdmi.
My TV haven't any digital audio decoder or something. Only stereo over hdmi connection i guess.

1. I've connected the motherboard's internal SPDIF pins to the graphic card.
2. Installed xbmc-9.11-live-repack to hdd.
3. aplay -l

4. Created ~/.asoundrc file as:

5. Tried every settings on XBMC-> SYSTEM-> AUDIO (analog-digital; default, hdmi, iec958)
6. No sound in videos.
If i choose digital audio output, "failed to initialize audio settings..."
But there is sound in the menus.:confused2:

Please help... thanks in advance.
