    If you guys are looking for a solution to connect your older mbs with mini-dvi ports to a hdtv now monoprice is offering a solution. I do not work for them but I am excited that I do not have to cash out $20 for an Apple mini-dvi --> dvi then another $20 for a dvi -> hdmi cable. I was sick of using XGA through my hdtv as the resolution sucked so now I can run 1080i resolutions all for less than $14. Just wanted to give a heads up to other mb owners.

    Will this pass video and audio or just video?

    DVI never passed audio. I'm assuming mini DVI is no different.

    I need one, its disapointing that dvi dosent pass audio because a hdmi v1.3 does, it would be wonderfull to have it all in one
