Why can't I get any audio when I use my TV as a monitor?

I have an old model (2010) Macbook Pro...the kind that only transfers video but not audio through the hdmi cable.
I have this tv:
With these terminals:
DVI Audio In
Optical Digital Audio
HDMI Ports 2
So I can get video with a mini-dvi to hdmi adaptor and hdmi cable, but I can't get sound.
I didn't know what "in" and "out" meant when it came to terminals ( complete newbie at this!) so I tried an audio cable, an optical digital audio cable and a DVI Audio cable. The audio and optical digital audio didn't work becuse they're output terminals, but neither did the DVI Audio in!
Am I doing something wrong? Is there no way to get sound from my Macbook Pro to this tv???
