    Please clarify. What isn't working through HDMI? The sound, the video, or both?

    Go to a terminal, type alsamixer
    then press F6 and select the nvidia card
    unmute each hdmi channel with the M key.

    You need to select the HDMI output in System Settings, Sound. If it's not listed, you may need to restart Pulse.

    this will give you some speaker test commands
    Code:
    aplay -l | grep card | sed 's/://g' | awk '{print "speaker-test -Dplughw:"$2","$7" -c2"}'
    find the one that works and tell us which
