    I don't know how the digital AV adapters work, but if they plug into the dock port, it is probably putting the audio through those cables.

    Can you give me a link to the adapter?

    A temporary fix may be plugging some headphones into the iPhone, just to see if that works.

    it just plugs into the iphone directly and hdmi to the tv. i had the vga one also and had to use the headphone jack also, but i thought this would be better just using one cable to the tv instead of two

    The Apple Digital AV Adapter sends audio through the dock connector. So it should be coming through your TV, assuming it supports it. Most TVs do though, I would look for some settings on the TV.

    If you don't want it coming through the TV you could probably plug in some external speakers into the 3.5mm jack on the iPad. There might be a setting for it on the iPad, but I don't know.
