I have tried plughw:1,3 and plughw:1,7 in both the Custom Audio Device and Custom Passthrough Device plus mixed the two on each with no joy...

Thoughts????

Update...

Okay, this is strange, well to me it's strange:

I changed the "Audio Output" to "Analog" and I get sound through HDMI. Is this normal? I'm not real concerned about surround or anything as I'm only running a soundbar and subwoofer but is there a better way or should I just count my blessings and continue with setup??

Thanks!

EDIT::

Oh, I should mention that the menu sounds do not come through the TV, the sounds are coming from the computer speaker. This is normal if I don't have speakers hooked to the computer...
