Default HDMI M3N HT/DELUXE AND BFG 9800GTX

Hi everyone,
I am currently running my computer using a m3n ht deluxe board with a 9800gtx video card.Right now my PC monitor is plugged through the dvi port from the 9800gtx and I was thinking of also connecting my computer to my 40 inch Samsung LCD TV to watch bluray movies.
The thing is that I already tried to connect the SPDIF cable from the video card to my board so i can get sound from the dvi to hdmi adapter and it does not work.
I get no sound from the PC to my TV.
Now, my board has a hdmi port and I was wondering how can i get the HDMI port from the motherboard to work with my TV just when I watch my movies and after have my video card enable to use my Pc monitor.
Can I enable one and disable the other?

Thanks in advance!

Think its because the tv has no way to decode the audio, what kind of audio hardware do you have for the tv?

My sound card is a creative X-FI Gamer. My hdmi cable runs straight from my computer to the hdmi port on the TV.
