    just testing my i7 15"

    do not get sound from mini display out to hdmi adaptor

    you still have to order the adaptor with usb

    What a shame

    I have not had any luck getting the audio to work with the mini-display to HDMI cable from monoprice and my 2010 mbp.

    there is no new options in sound, even when HDMI is connected

    Tried restarting the computer

    best bet remains monoprice's usb+minidisplay to hdmi for audio and video out

    We've been fooled or apple hasn't released firmware/driver update

    People with adapters (hopefully monoprice adapters) try this out:

    "We connected the Core i7 15-inch MacBook Pro directly to our CNET Lab Samsung LCD HDTV; nothing fancy. It wasn't effortless: we had to activate display mirroring in system preferences, but once we did we still didn't have any audio. We had to make sure to also hit the audio settings and select the Samsung HDTV source for output. Once we did, we couldn't control volume through the MacBook Pro anymore, but the TV remote control raised and lowered volume perfectly fine."

    It will only work if on special adapters. If it doesn't state clearly that it carries audio, take it for granted, that it won't work.

    Get the official adapter if and when it gets released.

    looks like we have to use vesa 1.2 certified adaptors to get sound to carry through.

    Monoprice's minidisplay+usb out to HDMI adaptor still works if people dont wan't to buy another hdmi

    on cnet's page:
    "UPDATE: we hooked the MacBook Pro up to a Denon receiver, under the watchful eye of home theater reviewer Matthew Moskovciak, and played Sin City on DVD. The initial audio stream was in PCM, and sounded good with a few initial drop-outs on the receiver. We then switched audio outputs in the DVD players settings, using what Apple listed as "internal HDMI out," and got Dolby Digital 5.1 audio that sounded as good as HDMI, again with a few odd initial audio hiccups." I am not finding any such apple term from my iphone anybody got a keyboard on them to check it out?
