I will try to help you with this, I just don't use HDMI at the moment myself.

Try the following on your XBMC Media Center:


1) Go to: Settings > System > Audio hardware

2) Settings you should try:

Audio output: Digital

[INDENT]Alternative 1: (write it with your keyboard)
Default audio device: hdmi

Alternative 2: (write it with your keyboard)
Default audio device: plug:hdmi

Alternative 3: (write it with your keyboard)
Default audio device: plughw:0,3[/INDENT]


Passthrough audio device: hdmi

Downmix to stereo: Yes/No


Remember:

1. You need to disable Dolby Digital and/or DTS unless the device on the other end can decode the signal. Most Surround Speakers have one, or both options.

2. If you have not unmuted HDMI under AlsaMixer, you will not get HDMI to work.

3. You should test your new settings with a video or music, and not the GUI sound as there is a bug with HDMI and the navigation sounds. (yes, there's a fix for that aswell)

Tell me if or what worked, and I will try to upgrade my first post with this information aswell.
See that there are many threads regarding this issue.
Good luck!
