So I want to connect my late 2011 17" MBP to my Samsung monitor. I figured I needed a Mini Displayport to HDMI adaptor. After a quick Amazon search I found two types. Option 1 Option 2 I was wondering why anybody would go with option 2 as you'd need another separate HDMI cable? Whereas option 1 is straight from the Mini Display port to the HDMI on the TV. Looks as though both support audio for my model. Is there any difference between the two? Thanks Edit - Is it for users that wish to use an additional splitter to connect multiple displays up?
