    I own a macbook pro 15" which i bought in october 2009, and i want to connect it to my panasonic hdtv.

    I already own a miniDisplay port to DVI adapter, and a DVI to HDMI cable which i use, but i'm just getting video transferred and no audio.
    I understand i need an HDMI to HDMI connection for the audio to work.

    So my first question is - can my macbook pro model even transfer audio through HDMI? and if so, what is the difference between these two:
    Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter
    Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Cable

    I understand that for the first option i also need to get and HDMI to HDMI, but why get 2 cables if i can get one in the second option? is there something i'm missing?

    Thanks i advance

    you have macbook pro from 2009 which means that this model dont have audio out on mini display port so even if u buy mini display port to HDMI cable or adapter you wont get audio out as your macbook don't support it :( and apple added audio out on mini display port on macbook pro 2010 models

    to get audio out you could try to get one of thiese adapters

    Thanks for the quick answer!
    That's too bad..

    So if i already have a mini display port to dvi i can get that audio cable separately right?
