I found the problem. I had to put the audio output to HDMI. When I did
that it worked just fine. From what I found out DVI-D (digital) has audio in
it too. The dvi-d to hdmi adapter cord works just fine. WHHHOOHHOO!!!!

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.
