[trinity-users] sound in stretch on HDMI only works in VLC, analog only elsewhere

Via manual selection in VLC, which offers about 20+ devices to choose from, 
sound via HDMI works. However, system sounds and Youtube in FF only work via 
the analog pin jack. TDE control center makes no HDMI device offering. Anyone 
here know the secret to making HDMI default sound source everywhere?

Each of the following in /etc/modprobe.d/local.conf had no effect:
options snd_hda_intel index=0,1
options snd_hda_intel index=1,0
options snd index=0
options snd index=1
options snd_hda_intel index=0
options snd_hda_intel index=1

In a similar vein, instructions on 
either kept analog sound working, but killed HDMI/VLC sound, or had no 
apparent effect.

Instructions on 
various fail as user. As root, sound doesn't work at all. Doing python 
produces nothing that looks helpful, mainly confirming that cmdline tools 
already have shown. output:

Various sound related packages installed:
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
