Having been looking all around the internet and am wanting to connect my MacBook to my LCD TV.

I checked in my MacBook’s audio outputs and HDMI isn’t in there, I suppose this means that I can buy the HDMI cord as well as the adapter and get the video but not the audio?

I am willing to buy any cords or adapters to display my MacBooks screen and audio on my LCD TV, just a little confused at this point. Help!

Thank you so much ahead of time

A lot of good info right here
Connecting your Mac to your TV

I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

I did a quick search and it seems that people get audio just fine using the mini-display port to hdmi setup.

That discussion was on the 2010 macbook air...

I have a macbook from late 2009. I know that my macbook supports the HDMI video but does it allow audio to play through my TV?

Here is the manuel for my LCD: http://www.dynexproducts.com/cms/doc...N_Final_lr.pdf

Can I connect this:http://www.amazon.com/GE-Digital-Coa...6322348&sr=1-1
from the headphone input on my macbook to the coaxial digital audio input on my TV for sound

Then use this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A2NK89850H0GO2
along with an HDMI cord to connect to the hdmi slot of my TV for video.

Would that would?

I have a Macbook (Late 2009) and want to hook it up to this TV...

http://www.dynexproducts.com/product...32L200A12.html

Cord I think will work for video:

Cord I think will work for audio:
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...A2XNAOBSW0CZDL

Due to my macbook not supporting audio through the HDMI, I have to buy that 3.5 headphone jack to RCA.

Will this work or do I need different cords? Thank you very much!
