    Hi there,

    I bought a similar connector for my mac mini to my tv. The audio doesnt pass through the mini dvi so it doesnt connect the sound. And it notes this on the link:
    Note2: Audio will only work if Mini-DisplayPort source is capable of outputting audio though Mini-Display Port connector. Please check in your users manual for the Apple laptop you have.Application:

    I have to connect the sound through the phone jack to a separate sound system or through t toslink cable.

    I have seen other cables that will include a connection for the phone jack and the pass it through the HDMI cable. If i knew this before purchasing the cable i have I would have got it.

    Here is what i'm talking about

    Hope this helps

    The question I have is whether or not Apple passes audio over displayport

    I don't think they do even if the cable supports it.
