[ubuntu] PulseAudio shows sound being sent to the hdmi port yet no sound

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I used one of the help guides for establishing hdmi sound here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2142636 and also installed pulseaudio volume control. I can see the hdmi sound which would come out of my tv speakers yet isn't. In PulseAudio, the sound bar pulses which shows sound activity. The picture is great. The sound is no longer sent out of the built in speakers. My TV is not muted. I restarted and shut the system down a couple of times. What else can I try?:confused: (Hardware)
