I have tried putting custom audio/passthrough set to plugw:0,3 but still nothing.

also this is my aplay -l

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Generic_1 [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: VT1705 Analog [VT1705 Analog]
Subdevices: 2/2
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Subdevice #1: subdevice #1


Also I tried what someone said on youtube using Edan beta 3. which was type

"nano .asoundrc" into terminal in which his responded with
"defaults.pcm.device 3"

where I got

GNU nano 2.2.6 File: .asoundrc

state.Generic {

Ok. So I got it working. Just to be clear I will go through this so it makes a little more sense to people as it took me a while with a little luck as well.

1. Go to terminal on comp
2. Login by typing
ssh "username"@IP_of_your_XBMC

it will then ask for you pass, so type that in

3.Once you are in it should look like this
user_name@XBMC:~$
Type in
"aplay -L"

You will get something like this

null

HD-Audio Generic, VT1705 Analog
5.1 Surround output to Front, Center, Rear and Subwoofer speakers
surround71:CARD=Generic_1,DEV=0

dsnoop:CARD=Generic_1,DEV=0

plughw:CARD=Generic_1,DEV=0

4. Find the hdmi one, in my case it is the first one
5. Take note of yours "hdmi:CARD=Generic,DEV=0"
6. Go to System, Settings, System, Audio output.
Change Audio output device & Passthrough output device to Custom & type in step 5.

Make sure Audio output is set to HDMI as well.
I have set speakers to 5.1 and DD/DTS selected and it all works. AFTER A REBOOT. But audio works straigh away though.
