One thing to keep in mind when configuring PA to output over the
HDMI cable is that this is a digital output. The default
configuration is to use the analog output, because this is what most
people use. (Speakers hooked to the line out jack.)

PA supports both analog and digital output, but you have to select
the one you want. I am not sure if you can use both at once...
