HDMI Through DVD Player, No Audio **SOLVED**

This is my first HDTV and my first time using HDMI

I have a Polaroid 4011-TLXB (basically a 40" HD LCD with 720p and 2 HDMI ports)

the dvd player is a Phillips upconverting dvd player with a HDMI port

The HDMI cable is from monster and is just 3'3"

all three (tv, dvd, cable) are BRAND NEW

so I get picture, but no audio, and yeah I tried turning the volume WAY up.

When I turn everything off and hook it all up with component cables and the basic white/red audio hookups I can get video and audio.

I've unplugged my cable TV stuff to simplify things and so basically it's the power cords for the two devices and a HDMI cable run between them.

I've treid both HDMI ports on the back of the TV and it didn't make a difference.

What am I missing here?
And assuming something is actually defective and I'm not just a retard when it comes to hooking shit up, what's the most likely culprit and how should I go about testing it?

    Check the DVD player's audio settings. When I got my DVD player with HDMI cables I had the same problem. Switching the audio settings on the DVD player fixed it.

    You know HDMI doesn't do audio right?

    You need separate stereo AV cables for that.

    I love you. Works GREAT!

    I would never even have thought about a dvd player's setup. I hadn't even pulling the stock remote out of the packaging and had programmed my universal.

    Thanks!

    Hm, honestly didn't know. I strictly use my surround sound for audio and never even noticed any coming standard.
