r9916 Occasionally No HDMI Audio Out on ION2 Jetway Mini-Top - Kaysauce - 03-05-2012

Greetings everyone! I've been using OE since 0.99.5 or so and absolutely love it and appreciate all the work sraue and everyone dumps into this project!

Last week I downloaded an official daily ION pre-compile for my ION2 units I have lying around so I could play around with Eden. I installed r9916 onto a Jetway Mini-Top running a D525 and 2GB of DDR3 and ran into intermittent sound problems.

Attached is my no-frills asound.conf file that I initially had on the unit. It matches my previously-successful asound.conf file I used up through OE 1.0.2. When I hooked the machine up to the TV directly and set the audio output and passthrough devices to HDMI, I got an error message saying the audio device had failed to initialize. Being intimately familiar with the ins and outs of the sound setup for the unit, I was baffled. Even setting manual audio output and passthrough devices of "plughw:0,7" in system settings, I was still met with the error message.

As soon as I hooked the machine up to my receiver, the sound worked without an issue, using both the "plughw:0,7" setting and the "hdmi(ALSA)" selection in the spin control within XBMC. Hooking the unit back up to the television again produced the same error and the unit would not output audio.

If needed, I could reproduce the error and post logs if necessary. I'm more curious as to what could cause this than anything else. Any input is greatly appreciated!

EDIT: Here's the referenced asound.conf file. Sorry about that!
