I installed Ubuntu-Netbook remix to Asus EEE series. And plugged device to a Sony television through HDMI interface. But I can't get any sound from television but sound is available from the headset jack of Asus EEE.

Can you help me about this issue ?

I perform some google search and seems that the issue is historical one.

The output of lspci and aplay -l please. – Bobby Mar 31 '11 at 18:36

You likely have HDMI output turned off in the audio configuration.

The pavucontrol package installs the Pulse Audio Volume Control Utility. The configuration panel allows you to turn on output. Your HDMI output should then show up in the output panel.

Open the sound configuration from the top panel and select the "HDMI" device as the output sound device.
