No HDMI sound


Hi,

I'm running openSuse 11.2 x64 with KDE 4.3.4 on Lenovo Y550P laptop with Nvidia GeForce 240M video card. HDMI video works properly but with no sound. I unmute IEC958 KMix and tried the same with alsamixer but with no success. Also I can't see any HDMI output device in Yast sound settings and it seems that it should be there. Any advice?

Here are outputs of aplay:

Code:
aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC272 Analog [ALC272 Analog]
Subdevices: 0/1

Just to clarify:

Are you watching HDMI video on the laptop?
If yes, what application are you using? Kaffeine? Mplayer?

Are you watching HDMI video from your laptop via HDMI lead on a TV
or other external display?

Update: as I understand in lspci output I can see my HDMI audio device:

Code:
lspci -v | grep Audio -A 8

        Subsystem: Lenovo Device 38af

Why it's not mentioned in aplay?
