You need to have all the gear plugged in and turned on when you issue that command. Did you do that or not?
Yes, the TV is plugged in and currently displaying the computer's wallpaper and I'm still getting all 0s for that command.

Yes, I tried that. I can set it to HDMI as the output but no sound comes out when I do it. It does, however, see that there should
be sound--when I look at the specific application under the Playback tab (which is where I set it to HDMI) the bar underneath it is flickering to show the sound volume. As soon as I switch it back to the Built-In Audio Analog Stereo option, the sound returns from the computer speakers.
