I connected my MacBook Pro from the mini display port to the DVI to the HDMI on my TV, the picture works fine, but i can't get the audio to work on the TV. Any ideas?

    The Minidisplayport supplies video only (no audio) to HDMI. You have to get audio out from the audio jack.

    Whether kostby is correct or not depends on which MBP model you have. If it's one of the ones just introduced in April of this year, the video-out port on the MBP does output audio as well as video, but your adapters aren't designed to support that capability or your TV's settings haven't been configured properly; if it's an earlier model, kostby is right.

    Audio is not supported in a DVI connection. If the MBP has audio on it's mini display port, you would need a cable that went directly from the mini display port to HDMI.

    Try this

    It provides audio from a 2010 MBP to HDMI (works great). If you have an older MBP or an Apple HDMI adapter, it will not work.
