Default Computer to TV, sound & video on both different channels

Hi there,

Hopefully the title makes sense, I shall carefully explain!

I have a nVidia geforce 9800 GTX and a 42" Phillips tv

The items I purchased were, HDMI To DVI-D Dual Link Cable & Lynx Standard 3.5mm stereo jack to 2 x RCA Phonos

I followed my tv manual which basically said (shortened)

step 1: connect dvi output of your computer to the HDMI 1 or HDMI 2 slot.
step 2: connect the audio cable to the pc's audio jack and to the L/R audio jacks (EXT3) of the TV.
step 3: press AV on remote and go to HDMI channel

The problem here is that it only displays the video output from my computer on this (HDMI1) channel and no sound. If I go to channel (EXT3) it will happily play the sound from my computer but no visual display!

I would greatly appreciate advice, help, links to purchase the correct hardware etc?
