It shouldn't fit anywhere except that single port in the pic above.

1. What Mac do you have? Personally, I prefer to have the year, model and processor speed. Example: 2008 iMac 2.8, 2006 Mac Mini 2.0, or 2009 MBP 2.6.

I have a Macbook Pro 2009 (5.5)
2. What TV do you have? This means make and model #. A link to your owners manual (not the spec sheet) would be helpful. But, if you can't find it, still provide your model # and we'll try to work from there.

Sharp Aquos LED TV Model: LC-52LE640U
should have all the ports...

3. Where do you want the sound? On the TV, a stereo, a 5.1 A/V receiver? If you want it someplace other than the TV, you'll need to provide the make and model of that piece of equipment also.

Want the sound to come through TV, thanks!

I have bought a dvi-hdmi cord and a separate A/V cord but cannot get this to work!

See the bottom of pg 13 in the owner's manual - link.

When it indicates using HDMI 1, you need to use HDMI 1, not HDMI 2, etc.

Also, note the audio setting you need to make along with the connections.
