I'm still pretty green with linux and I try to hook up my Gateway P-Series laptop to my HD tv via HDMI and I get no sound. If anyone has any helpful information about this small inconvenience please help. Running Ubuntu 8.10 not quite sure on my specs.

I don't think many pc hdmi outputs actually do audio over hdmi. You'll probably have to get your sound from the headphone or other speaker output jack.

This is accurate. Check with your motherboard or computer manufacturer for specs.
