I just bought a 2 cords to hook up my Macbook Pro to my TV. I went to best buy and they told me that the mini display port to HDMI adapter by rocket fish linked with they DYNEX High Speed HDMI cable cord should allow me to view my computer on my TV with audio. I went online and searched how to set it all up. I was able to get my computer screen to show on my TV but when i go to the sound in system preferences and go to output there is no option for the tv. How could i get my computer to recognize my Samsung HD TV and get audio to the TV instead of coming out of my computer? This is what is showing up in my sound system preferencesPicture 3.png

Do you have the Mid 2010 model 7,1 MacBook Pro. Those were the first ones that could run audio through the Mini dispayPort http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4241

Go to the Apple in the upper left corner and select About This Mac, then click on More Info. When System Profiler comes up check the Model Identifier.
