I finally got pulseaudio working and using this below in my .asoundrc has sound playing from chromium again.

pcm.!default {
type hw
card LX3000
device 0

ctl.!default {
type hw
card LX3000
device 0

I don't have the default sound working on my laptop as of yet, but the main hurdle is over and I can watch videos on chromium!

Many thanks.

I'm going to do a little more research and see if I can get the sound working on my laptop. but that's not as important.

Nvidia Audio Driver Support

I'm not sure where I found this URL, but decided to repost it here.

In addition to running through this trouble shooting guide, I also realized that my 4k HDMI Monitor (TV)'s speaker settings were causing audio problems as well.

Check your sound settings.
- Turn off Surround Sound - Temporarily
- Turn off Audio Leveling - short test wav files may not be audible with this on.

So it does appear that the A/V lag was caused by a bad HDMI port on my previous video card.
