MacBook (2008 model) to HDMI
After searching and posting on here, I find that my 2008 MacBook will support HDMI video-only and not sound. My MB works with my Panasonic HDTV through VGA ok and I will have to have a separate audio cable. Does it make much difference in picture quality? (HDMI vs. VGA). I need about 20' foot of video and audio cable to use in order to not move my MB from its Internet connection. (My tv is not wi-fi enabled.)
HDMI cable plus separate audio cable?
VGA cable plus separate audio cable?
HDMI or VGA cable and use my existing external computer speakers for sound?

HDMI to MacBook
Thanks. That's what my local Mac (not an Apple Store) dealer told me about the picture on the tv. After I get a connector, I'll try it with the HDMI cable on the tv set before purchasing one. If that works, I'll try it with my external speakers before buying a separate audio cable. I ordered a connector from the local BB that is supposed to fit my MacBook. If so, I may be in business. Otherwise, back to the VGA.

do you happen to have the late 2008 aluminum body one?
if so, you have a minidisplayport.
this would solve your audio/video solution.
if the early 2008,
you need this and a seperate audio cable like you mention.
