Sound over hdmi ati HDA


For my mythtv/router box I'm trying to get the sound working trough hdmi as well as over the analog out.

Because the HDMI is located on the mainboard and has something to do with the video driver I downloaded and installed the following:

ATI Catalyst™ 10.3 Proprietary Linux x86 Display Driver 94.2 MB 10.4 4/28/2010

However the output aplay -l is showing me(I got hdmi sound working on my laptop) isn't the same as on my laptop, it does not show the hdmi "sound card"
here is the output:
~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 1: ALC883 Digital [ALC883 Digital]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
does anyone know how to do this? I prefer sound trough hdmi but for the HDMI to work I previously needed to be able to see the HDMI device listed by aplay -l

I just found an article that says I need the 2.6.33 kernel to do this:
I'll put a cable between the analog out and the amplifier if this is the case I think.
