    Hey guys,

    I asked my co-worker the other day, i heard that the mini displayport to HDMI with audio will NOT support audio played through anythign but video players.

    Is this correct?

    For example,

    If I'm using my macbook air plugged into via HDMI to the TV,

    I play music thru Itunes, do i get the sound pass thru to the TV?

    How about if i'm playing a game on my browser with sound, does the sound go through the TV?

    How bout youtube or other flash based videos?

    Your friend is mistaken. When the cable is plugged in, "HDMI Audio" becomes an output device for all sounds.

    I bought a Mini-DP-to-HDMI and all audio came through, from the volume icon to my audio editing software to QuickTime and VLC.
