    Well, you have an old MacBook with a miniDVI (not DisplayPort) output, so you have to get a miniDVI to HDMI adapter.

    The cord you have cannot be made to work. You need a mini-DVI to HDMI cable. There is not (that I know of) a one-cord audio/video solution for mini-DVI Macs, so you'll have to run the audio via a second cable.
