Linux Gets HDMI Sound Pass Through Support via ALSA and Kernel 2.6.27-x

Terrific news for our Linux HTPC enthusiasts. ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture) version 1.0.19 has added 1000 new features including support for HDMI audio pass through via kernel 2.67.27-x. Previously getting audio through HDMI had been a bit of a chore. Now, hopefully, we’ll see a new surge in custom Linux HTPC builds and OEM set-top devices designed to serve HDTVs. [via]
