    I have a Mini Display to HDMI adapter and HDMI chord. I connected them and plugged it in the TV, but all I got was video, but no sound. I went to the audio settings and tried everything, still nothing. What do I do?

    (I have mavericks. My MacBook is 2 years old)

    Check System Preferences > Sound > Output or OPTION/Alt click the sound/volume icon in the Menu Bar and tell us, what is listed and checked as Output Device.

    Which mini display port to HDMI adapter are you using. Some don't support audio.

    You'll have either figure out which model it is or try another cable. I have a Belkin that says audio in the spec sheet. Plenty of cheap ones don't support audio.

    ^ This. Will tell us if HDMI audio out is possible with your adapter and if you have it selected.

    Leave the MacBook Pro turned on and connected to your TV. Connect a USB keyboard to it. Close the lid so the computer sleeps. Press a button the USB keyboard to wake it up but do not open the lid. The picture should return to your TV, and see if your audio is now working.
