Updated 10/16/2016 to reflect a small installation change to regain HDMI audio functionality in Sierra . This solution will work in Sierra as well as several previous versions of MacOS. Keep in mind that I didn't create the tools I only figured out how to use them. Credit for the kext goes to andrejkw at macrumors. Your mileage may vary but this is the easiest solution I've found. It has worked for many others. Definitely worth a try.

1. Download package located here https://www.dropbox.com/s/8hay1m0rec93vvo/HDMIAudio-1.0.dmg?dl=0
2. Mount HDMIAudio-1.0 disk image
3. Mount your EFI partition. You may need to use Clover Configurator or similar tool to do this.
3. Copy HDMIAudio.kext from the HDMIAudio disk image to EFI/Clover/Kexts/Other
4. Reboot. (x2) Clover may hang on the initial boot attempt, if so a restart of the computer should have you up and running.

There you have it, a simple file copy.
After the reboot I had working HDMI Audio.
Hopefully this helps someone else.

If you're confused there is a quick rundown in this video.
*the video was for a previous version of MacOS. Make note of the kext folder in this updated guide!

*Don't forget to select the proper output! System Preferences/Sound/output or hold the Option key while clicking volume icon.

So now you have HDMI audio, but what about volume control? OSX doesn't support volume control of HDMI devices natively. Use one of the utilities below to enable it.

Please people anyone helps me !
After I done this I have not audio output anymore ! even in onboard headphone
When i use the toleda detect script this is the result :
------------------------------------------------------
File: audio_codecdetect.command_v2.2

HDMI audio codec(s)
Nvidia: 0x10de0084

Onboard audio codec
Realtek: 0x10ec0887
Name: Realtek ALC887
Audio ID: 3

Valid audio codec, audio device and Audio ID; audio injection is working
Finished-
------------------------------------------------------

But when i install the kext all my audio outputs disapear in the Mac audio control panel.

This method is as simple as copying a file from one location to another. If it caused a problem just delete the file & look for a different solution.

I deleted , and audio had back to normal.
The toleda scripts detect the Nvidia HDMI and onboard outputs why the system don`t let me choose hdmi , still don`t understand I try everything

Continues to work in High Sierra. Oddly motherboard audio drivers had to be reinstalled before HDMI audio returned.

Worked like a charm for me. The only thing is that the output seems to ignore the volume setting on the computer.
This is default behavior for MacOS. It assumes volume control will be handled by the HDMI device. There are some utilities listed at the bottom of the OP which allow volume control from the OS.
