Question about Hitachi 42HDF52 Television
The audio in port for the DVI is the same one as for a RGB input (VGA) source. It is a 3.5 mm audio jack just above the S-Video input in the main input/output terminal block (to the right of the DVI and VGA inputs). To the right is the composite video output and the stereo RCA audio out jacks.
If you are using a basic HDMI to DVI cable and connecting to your computer's audio out, you need a separate 3.5 mm M/M audio patch cable. Then make sure that the default audio out is at the line out, instead of the HDMI. (The details for doing this depend on your OS. In Windows 7, click Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Sound . Then adjust the Playback device if needed.
If your audio output is stereo RCA jacks, you will need an adapter. If you already have the RCA audio cable, get a F/F RCA to M 3.5 mm adapter.
If you have a unified cable with HDMI to DVI and the audio cable splitting off (I think I saw one of these cables in a catalog once but not recently), see the above depending on the type of audio plug you have. You might need a 3.5 mm extension cable (F/M).

I hope this helps.

you will be needing a RCA cord to be able to get audio/sound. The RCA cord I am referring to is the red and wile (Left & Right) cable.
Check the back of your TV, you will see a red and white RCA input space like wise at the back of your device. Connect the cord from "Audio out" of your device to "Audio in" at the back of your TV.
There should be sound after this connection. Below is an image of the RCA cord.
