    I've just connected my mac book to my TV with a DVI to HDMI cable, but I can't get any sound. I thought this was the connection required to get sound through the TV. I'm new to the mac and still learning can anybody help please?:confused:

    When you use a DVI to HDMI cable you lose sound. You need to run a standard headphone 3.5 cable from the headphone jack to your tv. I use the one that has the headphone cable on one end and red and white on the other end. I believe the cable is a 3.5mm cable to RCA Audio Cable. Hope this helps.
