Bug Description

Like others I am having problems with outputting sound over HDMI (e.g. #1158909), however in my case the hardware clearly works, it is just the the HDMI option doesn't appear in the GUI etc.
   aplay -D hdmi ...
 works, and I can get all the programs to output to hdmi correctly by running
   echo "set-default-sink alsa_output.hdmi" | pacmd
However, I would expect a way to set the output to HDMI via a menu, but none of pavucontrol, xfce4-mixer or alsa-mixer allow this.

I am using Lubuntu Raring 13.04 AMD64 with kernel 3.8.0-15.

For example in pavucontrol->Output Devices->Port the only options are "Analog Output" and "headphones".
