Well I would like to say that this is my first post in this forum. And would like to say after being a Linux user for some time I have had nothing but problems with this distro. And I hope it isn't just me. But most of all I am having issues with the sound not working and apps/games not running after install. But lets take care of the sound issue first.

I have downloaded the most recent raspbian distro as of now 1/7/12. And yet I do not have working sound through my HDMI. I have installed this distro while my HDMI was plugged in. And have followed the instructions given in MagPi issue 3 page 4 to no avail. I am currently hooked up to a different T.V than I used from the original install location.

P.S Also would someone tell me if I could search the sub-directory of Raspberry Pi for just questions pertaining to raspbian in the raspbian forum. Please Help.

Not sure about apps using native system audio, but when using omxplayer (to play movies or music) you need to specify an extra option:
Code: Select all
omxplayer -o hdmi movie.mp4

Please let me know if it works.
