it did not fix the bug, PCM sound is still muted and I have to change session to gnome and unmute it.
Do you know anywhere I can look for a solution, specifically?

But if you do not switch to gnome, instead open the alsamixer in the console or SSH, unmute, exit and then
sudo alsactl store 0
Does it give an error message or does it save the sound?

vikjon0: every time I typed sudo alsactl store 0 : it would not give me any error messages. However upon startup PCM would be muted.
I think ive fixed the problem now. I did what you said by storing the vol settings. Then I removed pulseaudio drivers - I think they were conflicting with the ALSA drivers.
Seems fine now, I even have sounds in XBMC's GUI.
.....im sure someone may have written to remove pulseaudio but i cant remember where i read it.
Thanks anyway man

Maybee a stupid question, ... the HDMI on the ION platforme is a "real" HDMI connector ?
Sound + Video
Or a fake HDMI, a DVI with HDMI connector and video output ?
A try to correct my XMBC on this plateforme, AC3 and DTS are OK with SPDIF connector, but nothing on HDMI ... and stereo files like DivX ou music, no sound !!!
iec958 selected, but witch name for HDMI output .... ?

The Ion platform is "real HDMI" just like many other 9400 based set-ups.
7.1 PCM HDMI audio is supported on the Ion platform - both the Acer Revo and the Asrock Ionstar 330 are confirmed to do proper HDMI audio in both Windows and Linux.
It is slightly less-straightforward to set-up in Linux than in Windows but it is possible.

Is no one else having trouble with their MCE remote not working on some of the cold boots of the system?
I've been looking in /var/log/messages and some other logs and everything seems to load fine but when I the system is booted the remote does not work. I then reboot it and sometimes it starts working and other times I have to shutdown the system and boot again and suddenly it starts working.
Is it just my remote (HFX Vista Remote GP)? I'm thinking about ordering another mce remote and hoping for the best...

Perfect,I enterd this line using SSH and now XBMC starts without any problem.
Astrock+XBMC are working very nice together.
ONly thing I had to do is get rid all the movies that where using WMA audio (HD movies where not playing well when WMA was used) and exchange them for ones with AC audio and now every one plays perfect.
Even 1080P works great

i got my AsROck yesterday and install Ubuntu and XMBC from the guide here.
Thanks to vikjon0.
I´ve also installed the Power Managment Policy Kit.
Two problems i have:
First: When i playback a media, after a couple of minutes, xbmc goes from Fullscreen in window mode and the screen go dark. In the Power Managment in Ubuntu the Buttons are on "Never". Any idea?
Second: I don´t understand this part of the Howto:
I logged out the xbmc user and press F10 - nothing happens?
