my cable box has hdmi, but my tv only has dvi for hd. if i buy the hdmi to dvi cable, would i need a separate left and right audio cables for the sound? is the hdmi to dvi cable only for video? i wonder, because hdmi to hdmi cable has both audio and video right? but what about hdmi to dvi cable? many thanks to all that helped =)

you are going to need cables for sound... dvi doesn't carry audio...
