[opensuse] alsamixer offers only S/PDIF pair instead of full suite for HDMI device/output
I run across this time and time again trying to get sound to work.
alsa-firmware is installed. What is missing when a sound device exists,
but cannot be used, as $SUBJECT describes, alsamixer missing master,
front, surround, center, pcm, line, and the rest? Is there some AMD/ATI
firmware from some optional repo required? e.g. on 42.1:

# cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [Generic ]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic
HD-Audio Generic at 0xfeb60000 irq 16
HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfeb64000 irq 41

# aplay -vv -Dplughw:0 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/test.wav
(produces sound through analog pin jack)

# aplay -vv -Dplughw:1 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/test.wav
aplay: main:722: audio open error: No such file or directory

# aplay -l # AMD Kaveri
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: ALC1150 Analog [ALC1150 Analog]

Re the aplay -l output, says
for in 50-sound.conf 'For the "id" to use, see the output of "aplay -l".'
Where/what exactly in the above output is the "id"?

Including 'options snd index=1,0' somewhere in /etc/modprobe.d/ swaps
the two main devices, but has no impact on $SUBJECT. output:

setup_default_volume has no --help nor man page. What is its '-f 0'
option specifying?

PS: Problem is identical on same machine in 13.1 and 13.2. It's only
almost the same problem on same machine in Debian Stretch. Somehow,
Debian's VLC offers a manual selection of about 4X as many devices as
VLC in 42.1, including HDMI, which actually works. However, all other
Debian sounds goto the analog output. Neither does system/desktop
settings -> multimedia show any offer of HDMI, only pulsaudio, alsa,
and 2-3 others.

words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
