My MBP 17 is 8 months old. I recently bought a mini display port to HDMI adaptor (as I wanted to be able to route videos etc stored on the MBP through my HD TV)..........Anyway the adaptor works well.........But there is no audio coming out of the TV at all. I read somewhere that I should be able to get an audio as well as a video signal. Into my TV via the HDMI route.

Does anyone have any ideas ?

Just make sure you verified that your model MBP is one that will carry audio via it's mdp. It should at 8 months old if you bought it new and not refurb or old stock from someone, it's been a little over 9 months since the current model was released.

If you come up with any other questions after reading the sticky, just let us know.
You may have to go into Sound preferences to select the HDMI out once you get it hooked up.

I have a similar problem of no audio. I have a 2011 MBP 13 and purchased a mdp to hdmi adapter from Rocketfish. I have video on my Toshiba 40" HDTV, but no audio. I went to preferences --> sound --> outpout and select HDMI Toshiba, but still no sound.

Any advice?
