Have you tried setting the ATI HDMI Output as your default audio device?

Have a look also at these recommended actions -No audio from HDTV when playing audio from a computer system

The post above is correct, whatever hardware configuration you have... you have to set the default audio output to HDMI to get sound to your TV via HDMI, which can be accomplished by right clicking on the speaker icon in the taskbar, selecting playback devices, and setting HDMI as your default playback device

The short and simple answer is you can't as the card has nothing on it to allow the passing of audio. To get audio over HDMI or DVI-HDMI with adapter on ATI cards you need something from the HD 2xxx series and up. From what I can find none of the FireGL cards based on the same chipset as the regular desktop that do allow audio (done via a Realtek audio chip on the video card), have the necessary audio chip on them.

If it helps any your FireGL V3100 is based on the same GPU as the old X300/600 series of cards,

which didn't have audio on them to begin with.

The above post is correct by stormy!

You need to buy a certified 1.3b/c Dvi-Hdmi adaptor, then a certified 1.3b/c HDMI lead for visuals to hook up to TV/AV unit.(amazon get further ideas)

For sound, get an optical spdif lead if your TV/AV unit + motherboard has the facility, otherwise get an analogue spdif lead for digital sound connection.
Sorted.

i am on a dell workstation BUT can you send sound thru an DVI?

DVI-HDMI cable sends to the TV but i think, it has to be HDMI-HDMI in order to get the sound...?

i tried with a 8800gts as well, no sound

The 8800 GTS doesn't have an audio chip on it either. The Nvidia cards that allow for passing audio over HDMI (with the exception of the new GTX4xx series and a very few of the low end G/GT 2xx and 3xx series) all have a SPDIF header on them that has to be connected to the SPDIF header on the sound card,

Guide: 8800GT/9800GT/9800GTX Sound over HDMI (Now including Creative cards) - Overclock.net - Overclocking.net

Without that cable on Nvidia cards or an ATI card from the HD 2xxx series and up, it doesn't matter what kind of cable you use to connect to a TV, you will not get sound over HDMI.

Yes you can but in most cases it requires a DVI-HDMI adapter that comes with the card. The adapter is only needed for those cards that are capable of sending audio (and as already stated your old FireGL card is not one of them) but do not have a built in HDMI port.

Buy the 1.3c certified adaptor which costs about 4(uk) then you can use the hdmi lead for something else in future.

Splash out on an HDMI 1.4 lead to be more future proof - they are backward compatible & now a reasonable price on amazon

PS
Some cards do not have the audio circuits connected to allow sound even though the graphics chip is capable. The majority of AGP cards are also built like this!

The sound is re-routed as stormy and I keep telling you- thru motherboard or a separate sound card!

what you have to do is switch back and fourth through the sound settings hdmi and your on board sounds disable the onboard enable the hdmi sound it should show the icon then to switch back repeat first steps in reverse disable hdmi and enable sound

i have this set up sound wont work any other way cause it is going through the video card
