    ^ Thats exactly what you need. But they can be found cheaper than that. It's exactly what I'm using to run my MBP with my HD external display.

    I found one through my local Craigslist for $15, that's the cheapest I could find. Cheap enough?

    That one says it's Thunderbolt. Correct me if I am wrong but the 2009 MBP are not compatible with thunderbolt so it will be waste of my money.

    Also for sound, my TV has a audio jack that I will connect with my laptop, so I'm not worried about that.

    I think this one should work for you.

    No, read again. It's a MiniDisplayPort/Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter.

    Use this or a comparable adapter and skip the intermediate DVI step. It's generally best to avoid additional connections when possible (especially unnecessary ones).

    Can you clarify the difference between "sound" and "audio" in this context?

    The Thunderbolt port.

    Ok, I get it. I saw that first, but I was hesitant to buy it since I thought it was only for thunderbolt supported macbook.

    Does anyone know how long it takes to ship to Canada?

    I'm guessing that was a typo. It doesn't get sound, but it does get video.

    OP, that cable will work fine, as noted. It's compatible with both Mini DisplayPort and Thunderbolt-equipped Macs, hence the | separating the names (I know, it's a little confusing).

    As far as shipping to Canada, I'd say only Monoprice could tell you that. Their website doesn't list shipping timeframes to Canada (as you may have noticed), which may be for a reason.
