    You'll need a audio cable, Sound comes from the soundcard not via HDMI.

    Something like this should work

    Thats not the case anymore son. A lot of mobos/gfx cards are starting to support hdmi audio out. Sounds like a driver issue?

    sound does travel thro hdmi but it depends if the mbd or vidio card that the hdmi is coming out supports audio thro the hdmi,

    my machine has audio support thro hdmi, but i need to go in to my sound dettings and set my tv as the defualt device to get the tv to play the sound

    inb4 someone wants the make / model of said card

    saves time!

    To get the audio working from HDMI you need to connect the gfx card to SPDIF out on you motherboard. It is a 3pin cable.
