I am streaming Eurosport Player content to my Sony 403 TV through the iBook's DVI port via a DVI to HDMI convertor lead (HDMI to the TV). The picture transfer is perfect but the DVI/HDMI cable is not carrying any sound to the TV speakers. I realise that while HDMI should carry sound it may not with the configuration I'm using. So to get sound to the TV I presume I should use the headphone output on the iBook, and connect this to my TV via either the composite inputs or the specific L an R inputs provided on the TV. However I have tried both types of connections and neither work, so I am left listening to the sound through the laptop's speakers. Very unsatisfactory. I have changed the output in preferences to headphones but to no avail. Can someone advise me what I am doing wrong and what I need to do to achieve sound output through the TV's speakers. 

iBook, Mac OS X (10.6.7)
