Thunderbolt to HDMI with audio tutorial
Hello everyone, I want to first off clarify that this post is not a question, it is a tutorial-like thread on how to connect a macbook to an HD tv with a Mini dp to HDMI cable.
There are 2 choices, the male to female adapter: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Premium-Mini-...d114e0d&_uhb=1
Or the Mini dp to Hdmi both male: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/6FT-Feet-1-8M...ht_7799wt_1189
If you're buying a different one, make sure it says that it supports audio. Quite a bit of them don't support audio so you have to make sure.
Once you order/receive the cable(s), It's kind of obvious to just plug them in. But before you actually get audio on your tv (I had to do this for 2 seperate macs),
The tutorial/main point of this thread:
Go to System Preferences --> Accessibility --> Audio --> Open Sound preferences --> Output --> And choose the hdmi option.
Here, enjoy some pictures ---
If you think this thread needs to be removed, just say so...

My technologically inept mother figured this one out by herself... Why do we need an entire thread devoted to it?

I'm comfortable doing all kinds of aggregate devices and matching sampling rates, but I didn't know this. Always Audio/MIDI setup. Not to mention option-clicking the WiFi to get transmit rate... But this?! Never occurred to me.
Brilliant. Thank you.
