that's a bummer. I started out with a GIGABYTE MA78GM-S2HP mobo with integrated Radeon 3200. I had the same problems trying to get audio over HDMI. After hearing everyone in the Linux community warn not to mess with ATI and go for NIVIDIA I assumed my problem was ATI. Otherwise I would have never bought this card!!
I am not without audio though. My tv conveniently has audio inputs for HDMI and I am just running the sound out from the regular sound jack on the linux box. I guess it is possible that the TV is not set up to handle sound over HDMI, but I don't have another tv to test on. Now that I have some kind of audio, I'm not worried about it anymore. If anyone figures it out let me know!
