I recently purchased an adapter (female Mini DVI>female HDMI) in order to be able to get home videos, etc from my Macbook to my Samsung HDTV. The adapter specs said it would transfer audio and video via the Mini DVI port to the HDMI port. We get the mirror image now on the TV but no audio. Is there a setting in my Macbook I need to make in order to get the audio functioning?

    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.
