If I use a dvi to hdmi to use on my VIP211, will I receive sound or not? if not, how can I get sound to my TV?

While HDMI does carry sound, the dvi does not. You can use the receiver's red and white composite outs to carry the sound to the tv.

You can also use the optical output of the 211 if your TV has an optical input.
