unable to play hdmi sound thru speakers

hi, i am trying to use fedora-14-live or linuxmint-10-live on an acer revo. it boots up fine on both but i am unable to play sound thru the hdmi cable (connected to my blu-ray 5.1 system).

i ran alsamixer and unmuted everything. and i went to sound preferences and tried every option in the harware tab.

:xbmc@XBMCLive:~$ aplay -l
