    I have a moshi adapter. Works fine, transmits audio as well as video.

    Rather than an adapter (which will still require an HDMI cable), I'd like to suggest this cable:
    Kanex Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Cable 10 ft (3 m)

    It's a little pricier than an adapter and a cable, but it's more "elegant" as a single component solution.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    I have one of these:

    NewerTech NWTCBLMDPHDMI Mini DisplayPort to HDMI... in stock at OWC

    IMO, OWC has the best products on the market - and this adapter is completely indistinguishable from the Apple dongles. The price is pretty decent too.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Monoprice is indeed good stuff. I didn't go that route because I swap out a cable when I connect my mbp to the tv.. and forgot about that option.

    They also have a dongle to use with a HDMI cable for about 7 bucks.

    No special software.. Just the extend desktop function. I see it when moving the mouse it's delayed a bit. When I use the VGA signal it's fast like a mouse ^^

    PS. to stay on topic here is some really nice info about HMDI and audio support through mini display port.

    I haven't noticed it myself - and I've done full HD video out to my TV via the adapter. No issues whatsoever. It could be a quality issue with the adapter. They are not all created equal.
