    Hi:

    I heard the new display port with the conversion to hdmi can now pass the sound too through hdmi. Is this right?

    In short yes it supports both video and audio out now. The problem many people are now running into with their new MBP is that many of the older cables are still getting ordered and they don't work.

    You have to be sure and get 1.2 VESA compliant mini display port to HDMI adapters. The older 1.1 VESA cables won't carry audio, only video.

    2) Buy the $17.99 one from Frys. Its just a white square but it works.
