    Can anyone please confirm that audio is transmitted over the MDP and comes out of an HDMI adapter to a TV or A/V receiver on the new MBPs?

    A bonus would be to know that 5.1 and/or TrueHD/DTS HD-MA (from a Blu-Ray MKV created using MakeMKV) makes it out of MDP to an A/V receiver via HDMI.

    It would be great to get confirmation of this on the 13" and the 15"/17" before I decide whether to order.

    Thank you to any early adopters who will check this out for us!

    Yes, it's really true.

    Hooked my new 13" up to a LCD TV yesterday and it worked flawlessly. Just make sure you go to sound options and select the HDMI as your audio output.

    I bought it on Amazon. A cheap, non-apple one and it works fine :).

    Typically, DVI does not include or pass audio. I say typically because I am aware of one case in which audio is supposedly passed over DVI, that being a DVI Doctor.
