    A small headphone jack should be audio out.

    The red and white phono ports are for audio in, a headphone jack to 2 x phono cable is what you need. Use it to connect the macs audio out (headphone socket) to the TVs audio in (the red and white phono ports)

    Yea, if your MBP has mini-DVI, then you will not transmit audio through it. Mini Displayport, however, is just a proprietary HDMI connection, which will transmit audio when you go from mini displayport to HDMI. You need an audio transmission though. You might wanna check into Creative Labs wireless soundblaster for iTunes. Transmits audio from your mac wirelessly to an existing speaker system with a receiver through a USB port.
