    There is no such thing as a "mini dv" video port on any Mac.

    The late '09 model MB with the 2.26 Ghz chip would have a "mini displayport" (or mdp for short).
    It does not support audio out through the video port.
    You will have to use a separate cable for the audio with most of the adapters out there.

    You should have a read through Post # 3, the Second: section - here:

    If you have problems figuring it out, you'll need to provide the make and model # of your TV for the specific connections &/or settings required on the TV.

    No Audio with mini dvi to hdmi
    Hi

    I have a macbook version 10.5.8
    mac os x
    processor 1.83 ghz

    I know the mini dvi to hdmi adapter does not carry audio, so how do I get audio?
    I have a good picture on my apex digital flat screen, but no sound.
    I also bought a red and white cable for sound to connect to the headphone input on macbook.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    your macbook headphone jack input should have male to male ends, one single audio cable to tv audio in jack. that should do it. sample of audio cable

    Ycl: this is not the same as the headphone jack to red and white Audio? I have a red and white audio jack next to hdmi on side of apex tv.

    Dysfunction. I read your link many times and it was of no help.

    Once you've connected the 3.5mm headphone out to your MacBook and the L R white/red phono plugs to the TV you may need to go into the TV settings and switch the audio in source as the TV will default to audio in from HDMI.

    Also, you say you've read the link Dysfunction posted many times yet you haven't posted the information it requests.

    An "Apex digital flat screen" isn't going to help people find info to help you without adding model numbers etc.

    Good luck with the other cable but if the HDMI input doesn't have an alternative audio in on the tv it's never going to work

    My replies are not nasty you were directed to comprehensive help which you clearly didn't read and understand. So people have just have had to guess what's available on you tv.

    But my comment stands your tv may have audio in but if your HDMI input cannot accept that audio in as an input rather than expecting the audio across the HDMI cable it will not work.

    Don't mistake fact for nasty

    Yep, so far the information you've been given is 100% correct. We have no knowledge of your TV, so I can't even google it and read your owners manual for you. Really, this is what I'd suggest you do, it sure beats getting defensive when getting FREE technical support.

    On the tv, it should have dvi/pc audio in jack, using the single audio cable male to male ends, one goes to mbp speaker jack the other goes to tv audio in jack. As simple as this. since you have mentioned there is audio in jack on your tv.
    Macbook pro produced after mid 2010 does not require extra audio cable.
    I am waiting for the mountain lion to come out with airplay, buy an Apple tv module, all the cables will be absolute. And we do not have to be on each other throat. Life is meant to be taken easy.
