So I picked up a BookArc and I want to use my laptop on my Sony Tv. I have the cable that goes from the MBP that converts to HDMI. I get the picture up and its great. The problem I have is why dont I have audio? I dont need to run other wires do I?

(The HDMI cord in plugged into my HDMI in on the Tv)

You need to adjust the settings for audio output. With the HDMI plugged in and the TV on go into system preferences > sound > output > and select HDMI. After that any time you connect it to the HDMI cable it should just automatically switch over, at least that's how mine has always worked.
