How to I get multicast to work on an HP A5500 Switch?

I am trying to get my phones and PBX to autoprovision which requires multicast

I have the switch setup with the LAN (1) and a VLAN (50) and it is configured for auto-vlan from port 1-44
Port 45-48 are configured as VLAN50 port based

The phones, pbx and switch will all work together, but for autoprovision to function the multicast has to work  (broadcast network

On the Hp Switch I have enabled IGMP Snooping or both LAN1 and VLAN50 which I understand is suppose to allow the broadcast.

Any suggestions on how I can get mulitcast to work?
