Getting a HDMI microphone connection to work

I have my speakers hooked up through my monitor via HDMI and they work fine
but even though there is a microphone port on the monitor it doesn't show
in /dev/sndstat... btw it reads:

pcm0: <NVIDIA (0x0051) (HDMI/DP 8ch)> (play)
pcm1: <NVIDIA (0x0051) (HDMI/DP 8ch)> (play) default
pcm2: <Realtek ALC892 (Rear Analog 7.1/2.0)> (play/rec)
pcm3: <Realtek ALC892 (Front Analog)> (play/rec)

How do I get it to work with HDMI (vchan 2 above) since the mic is
integrated into my headphones?
