You need the mini display port to HDMI adapter. I bought mine on eBay for around 6 dollars, and it works like a charm.

You also need to run a cable from the headphone jack to the TV or stereo to get sound.

Audio is not passed through the mini display port, it's a display port. It doesn't matter if there was such a cable.

To clarify, you might see it mentioned elsewhere that this is possible. It is with iMacs and Macbook Pros, but not Macbooks.

Actually, I stand corrected. It's supported in the latest version of the Macbook. HERE is the list of compatible computers from Apple that support Audio via a Displayport to HDMI adapter. Here is the one that I use.

That's cool. I had no idea they started supporting this beginning in 2010.
