    Sometimes I really like my Mac. Times like these, I want to throw it against a wall. My old dv4 was easy plug in the hdmi and it automatically played whatever was on the screen. Cool. My Mac for some reason likes to show some wallpaper I had like two months ago but changed. Ok. I can live with that. So I drag my vlc player over to the tv. It maximizes and play but no sound. I go to options> sound output to tv nothing. Wtf. I want my pc back.

    DVI doesn't carry sound.

    In System Preferences, set up your displays for mirroring or spanning, and set your sound output to the device you want.

    More than likely your adapter is at fault. You can change the wallpaper for each monitor you have connected, also.
