Default HDMI to AV?

I have a laptop with a HDMI port. I was just wondering if there is a cord out there or a non annoying way to hook up my laptop using the HDMI port to the AV ports on the tv. Is this possible? I prefer to connect it to have sound. I have no s-video port so HDMI is all i have to work with.
Thanks!

Do you mean composite inputs?

If so, try this. Please ensure your HDMI output supports sound.

Yeah, i am composite. Thats really pricy. My HDMI does support sound, i know that. Is there a cable out there thats relatively inexpensive or must it go through a converter?

its going to have to go through a converter as HDMI is an HD digital signal while composite is a SD analog signal...
