No sound on external LCD with hd movie

Hello I would like to know if there is a solution to my problem :

I run kubuntu 8.04 with kaffeine xine engine.when I play an hd movie stored in my Hard Disk (it is an .mkv file 1920x1080p analysis ) it plays just fine!
I connect through HDMI and i configure my tv via nvidia-settings
When I try to play it on my external LCD tv (1920x1080p) I get the picture but NO THE SOUND!
So,how can I have sound to my tv ???
(There is no need to use only kaffeine but is my preffered one)
Thanks a millions!!!

Interesting - I wonder if the sound is being stripped and only video is being sent to the HDMI bus.
Have you checked if you're getting sound output on your computer?
Did you look at any startup messages to see if the software tells you what it's attempting to do with the sound?
