Well, according to this HDMI is card 0 in alsa, so unless you
have /etc/asound.conf that changes it it should be alsa default.
But... it says you have pulseaudio installed, and unless you have taken
effort to setup it in a sane way it is probably in an "alsa takeover" mode
(why maintainers of ALL distribution do this by default is a greatest
mystery of 21-st century, i suspect some vicious conspiracy). This means
all apps use pulse even if you instruct them to use alsa, so you have to
select default card in pulse (pavucontrol) instead. Or disable "alsa
takeover" mode in pulse.
