    I want to buy a big-screen TV to use as a computer monitor for watching movies and streamed videos- both off my laptop.

    I plan on hooking up my laptop to my TV and use it as a monitor, yet I´d like to be the only one to hear the sound. The TV I´m thinking about buying has 2 hdmi ports and a USB one. Is there any way I can watch the image on the TV but do something with my computer or with cables and whatnot so I´m the only one to listen to the sound?

    The tv I want to buy has HDMI and USB ports. Nothing else. My computer is a Macbook Pro.

    Hold down the option key and press the speaker icon. You can choose the audio output.
