I get a great picture via the HDMI out on my 1525 laptop, direct to my
TV, but there is no audio.
The TV is fine playing over HDMI from the cable box :-)

$ aplay -l

It would appear the output is muted, but I can't see where.... kmix
does not have a check mark in the 'IEC958' box, for instance, and
alsamixer shows the 'iec948' output at not muted, but volume level 0,
and I can't adjust it up.
