My white MB video out to DVI then DVI to HDMI only gets video out without audio.

Do newer models get both video and audio out??


White MacBook, iPhone 4, 64GB WiFi iPad, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    DVI does not support audio, regardless of what computer you're using. If you are using DVI, you need to run the audio separately, either directly to your TV or through one of the adapters that combines a DVI and audio signal into a single HDMI output.

    If your MacBook has a mini-DisplayPort output, then depending on the model of MacBook you have, that may support both audio and video with the appropriate mini-DisplayPort to HDMI adapter.

    I'm not getting a new Mac until the new 2011 lineup. These will probably include a mini display port right??

    Probably; mini-DisplayPort seems to be Apple's new standard for monitor ports. No one here can say with certainty, though.

    I was just wondering about this very thing; I have a MacBook7,1 (purchased Dec 2010) and want to hook it up to my flat screen HDTV and was wondering if I needed to buy a separate audio cable.

    I read that now MBP have the audio through the MDP; however, if I understand correctly this does not extend to plain vanilla MB7,1.

    Would someone be kind enough to confirm this statement. Thank you
