    Did you mean to say Blu-ray player, rather than DVD player?


    If you are talking about an upconverting DVD player, I'm pretty certain DVD players don't output audio via HDMI, only video. For a DVD player, you would need to run a digital optical or coaxial connection for audio.


    If you are talking about a Blu-ray player, please provide the model number.
