I have a Macbook Late 2006. Is there a way to connect in to a TV, with visuals AND audio?

I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to macs, so I have no idea how to do this. I've got a connecter which connects the computer to the tv via a PC connector and adapter, but this doesnt sent audio so I had to mess about with an AUX cable.

 

Is there a way of connecting it via one cable (and prosumably an adapter) from the Macbook to the TV? Such as an HDMI, it may be impossible but I have no idea!

 

Thanks!

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.5)

    Using a Mini-DVI toVGA, DVI, or Composite ou'll also need audio cables to the TV using a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack to RCA sound plugs or a 3.5mm stereo input plug for audio. You attach it from the headphone jack of your MacBook to the appropriate audio input plugs on your TV.


    If you connect the MacBook using a Mini-DVI to HDMI adapter you will probably need to use external speakers or a 3.5mm stereo headphone jack to RCA sound plugs connected to a stereo system for audio if your TV doesn't have separate RCA input plugs or a 3.5mm stereo input plug for audio with the HDMI plug. You attach it from the headphone jack of your MacBook to the appropriate audio input plugs.


    The Mini-DVI to HDMI doesn't carry audio and there're no audio plugs on most TVs to work with HDMI since it's expecting audio with the HDMI. Check your TV manual though to see if it might have audio plugs that work with one of the HDMI ports. You attach it from the headphone jack of your MacBook to the appropriate audio input plugs on your TV.
