I mean, on my digital TV (DTV) I have an optical audio (out) port and a PC in 3.5mm audio port. I assume I can't use the optical out port b/c that is TV audio going to PC, right? But if I connect a male-to-male 3.5mm audio cable to my motherboard to the DTV PC (in) port will it play the audio from my PC?
When I plug in my HDMI cord with the passive miniDP adapter to my DTV, I get a popup screen on my PC with a link to a help file that reads:

Digital Flat-Panels (Digital TVs)
The My Digital Flat-Panels group becomes available in Standard View and Advanced View if you are using a digital display (such as a monitor or digital TV) that is connected through a DVI, DisplayPort, or HDMI™ connection.
Use the various pages in the group to control how images appear on your display. Each page contains settings for view and configuring different display properties, such color, image adjustments, scaling settings, and HDTV support.
If your digital TV (DTV) supports HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and your graphics card has a DVI connection, you can connect the DTV to your computer using a DVI-to-HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable.
The DVI output on most AMD graphics cards is capable of audio processing and is composed of both video and audio signals. In this case, you need only a DVI-to-HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable to connect to an HDMI-capable DTV. If the DVI output on your graphics card supplies only video signals, you need a DVI-to-HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable to supply video to your DTV. You must also make a separate connection from the audio output of your computer to the audio input of your HDMI-capable DTV. Your DTV may also need to be configured for external audio. For more information, see your DTV documentation.
The availability of connections vary between graphics cards. Please refer to your user guide for information specific to your card.
