I think there's currently no way to blacklist devices in the

If you never want to use HDMI audio at all, then perhaps the best way to
solve your problem is to just make PulseAudio ignore that device altogether.

There's a guide here on how to do that for an USB audio device here via
setting "PULSE_IGNORE" in /etc/udev/rules.d.


It should work for HDMI audio as well if you adapt the device matching
rule for your specific hardware.

You can get the required info on your device by looking for sysfs.path
in "pactl list" and then using "udevadm info" to inspect that path.

Best regards
