Default HDMI to my tv, should there be sound??

I just purchased an hdmi cable to hook up my desktop to my tv. I see the picture, but I do not hear anything. I have it hooked up to my graphics card's DVI to HDMI adapter. Should audio be going through or would I need to change some settings or need a different cable?

Gigabyte EP35-DS3L
2x1GB PNY RAM DDR2-800
Sapphire HD4850
Antec Earthwatts 430 Watt
22" Acer LCD

Is your graphics card's sound plugged into the motherboard? Such a cable is generally required to give video cards sound functionality. Such a cable probably came with your video card.

I think you'll have to run the audio separately since you are using the DVI output as the source.

^^ Not true the 4850 will send audio over hdmi. You need to set your playback device to ati hdmi audio.

This is for a different ati card but should get you on the right track.
