Hardware has to support the audio transport. You may need to use an audio
cable out to your device.


>From (not my favorite resource) Wikipedia:

Features specific to HDMI (such as remote-control, audio transport, xvYCC,
and deep-color) are not usable in devices that only support DVI signalling.
However, many devices can output HDMI over a DVI output (e.g., ATI
3000-series <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_R600> and NVIDIA GTX
200-series <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_200_Series> video cards),[2
some multimedia displays may accept HDMI (including audio) over a DVI
input. In general, exact capabilities vary from product to product.
