Not all Sound routes through to my ATI HDMI Attached Monitor

First off, Hi Guys! Im new but fairly pc literate. I have been installing various distributions until i finally locked myself onto Slackware.

I have the system running pretty well overall, with one exception.

When i play Videos ie: avi or MP4, the sound doesn't route through my ATI HDMI, It is getting routed through my onboard audio. I found in the KDE apps the Mixer application, and it has plenty of controls for the Intel hardware, even a list of devices showing that they are identified and I can play test sounds. But my video applications are not routing through the HDMI. I'll give you a run down on my build:

Intel Core I7 2700K
16GB Ram DDR3 4GBx4 1600
Gigabyte GA-Z68AP-D3 Intel Z68 LGA 1155 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s DDR3 2133 ATX Motherboard
2 XFX Ati Radeon HD 4770's in Crossfire mode
10000rpm 73 GB Raptor, 120GB SSD and other HDDS + DVDRW

So I The sound works through my Headset from front or back of my PC, but the HDMI only seems to work for system event sounds.

here is my aplay -l

54 /home/raymond$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC889 Analog [ALC889 Analog]

card 2: HDMI_1 [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
55 /home/raymond$

So i have my HDMI connection to my Monitor on Card 1 device 3 HDMI 0.

Anyone know how i can get full mixer control and or make this my default audio device? Thanks!
