can I use an HDMI to DVI cable

I have an older SONY HDTV (1080i) that has a DVI connection in the back, not HDMI. I use the 3 cable set up for DVDs. Can my HDMI to DVI cable be used with the Apple TV?

    HDMI carries sound and video, while DVI only carries video. If you used an HDMI to DVI cable, you would not have sound.
