Are you using only an HDMI feed directly to the tv or passing through some sound system?
I don't believe changing HDMI cables or inputs is going to change anything but you might try playing around with the Digital Audio Output settings in the uverse settings and switch between stereo and surround sound to see if that makes any difference.
But giving hdmi the benefit of the doubt try using component cables instead.
