Cannot get sound through DisplayPort on AMD rx480

My card is able to output sound through DisplayPort, and appears as "Ellesmere HDMI Audio [Radeon Rx 470/480 / 570/580/590]" in the sound settings on Gnome.

This is the output of pactl list sinks:

Whenever I try to output sound to my displayport device, instead of playing through my monitor speakers, it plays through my other audio device: my headphones. This occurs even when doing a "speaker test" on just DisplayPort.

If there is any other information I ought to attach, please let me know.

Re: Cannot get sound through DisplayPort on AMD rx480

If you are not on 60hz, try switching to 60hz before attempting playback. You are generally sure you actually have monitor speakers right? Does it work on Windows/with other devices having HDMI output?

Re: Cannot get sound through DisplayPort on AMD rx480

I realized I never responded to you after all this time. Sorry if "necroing" is frowned upon, but I thought there should be some conclusion to this:

Like two days after my original post my graphics card died, rendering this issue moot.
