On my desktop the graphics card has six HDMI audio output devices. No
idea why, there's only two HDMI video and two Display Port output
devices. My motherboard has two audio devices, and I use an external USB
audio device.

Main ALSA audio is routed to the rear motherboard sockets. I use JACK
for all the others, including one of the HDMI audio outputs to get sound
routed to my main moniter, which is the only monitor with speakers. It has
crap speakers, so I only use it as an oven timer. I use my extrenal USB
for music production.

Though you didn't say if you are using ALSA, or Pulse-audio, or Pipewire,
but in general you'll have to select the HDMI audio output to got audio
routed to it.

A big old stinking pile of genius that no one wants
coz there are too many silver coated monkeys in the world.
