Hey, check the below link of amazon. this cable works gr8. You might have to change setting of sound in system preference to get the Audio output from TV.
Trust me, i am using this cable :-)

Did you solve this?
I am having the same problem with my Macbook Pro and an HD TV. Everything works fine if I switch the TV on and set the video input to the right HDMI input (using a HDMI to DVI adapter) *before* I turn on the laptop.
But if the laptop is running, I get no video output on the TV. What always works is that I turn off the laptop, unplug everything, and then reconnect the cables and turn on the laptop in a cold boot.
I would think that Apple would make this easy. When I connect the TV while the laptop is running, Sys Prefs tells me that the TV is recognized, but the TV receives no signal.
There's a function key with an icon showing two monitors. Ordinarily I would think that this cycles through the settings "just laptop", "just tv" and "mirrored".
I ought to say that my main use for this setup is to stream Netflix, and I wonder if Silverlight doesn't screw this up, because I get an alert when pressing the Function key the the F7 (I think that's the number) about displaying in full screen mode. So maybe Silverlight is capturing the key command.
