KDE/Mint changing sound device

So I just installed Mint 16 (Petra) and switched over to the propriatary Nvidia driver for my gtx 580. I have two monitors, my main moniter, and a T.V. plugged into the HDMI port on my video card. All is working fine exept for the sound, I want the sound to be coming out of my T.V.'s speakers. Right now it's coming out of these cheap analogue speakers I have plugged into the motherboard.

I went into Phonom, where I have
-"Built-in Audio Analog Stereo"
-"GF110 High Definition Audio Controller Digital Stereo (HDMI)"
If I set the former to a higher priority on "Audio Playback I get no sound.

Anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Edit: it works in windows, so the hardware is not at fault.

Only guessing, but dont you need this set at higher priority:
GF110 High Definition Audio Controller Digital Stereo (HDMI)
Click on that, then Prefer, then Apply, then Test.

If I do that I get no sound out of either set of speakers.

Alright, this is a bit emberassing, but I unplugged the anologue speakers from the Motherboard and the T.V. speakers work now. Not the best solution as I can't split output across the two of them, but better than nothing.
