Help with receiver and TV

Hi, I have a 2.1 all in one system, with a receiver connected to the tv via HDMI, and a PS3 connected to the TV also by HDMI (and then to the receiver by optical). I then have aux cables from the TV to the receiver.

My problem is, do i need the aux cables? because i assumed HDMI cables could carry audio and video? so why am i not hearing sound unless i have the aux cables plugged in?

Hope this makes sense and thanks for any help.

Yes, you still need the aux cables because the HDMI on your Tv is an input...it does not output.
