    Hey guys!

    So here is the deal, I recently went ahead and purchased a display port adapter thingy so that I can plug in my HDMI cable and watch movies on my TV.
    But while the picture is great, there is no sound! It is quite an expensive HDMI cable, so I’m sure it should be able to transmit sound.

    I have the 2011 Macbook Pro.
    The sound settings apparently recognizes that it has been connected to the TV, but I cannot get it to work.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    Appreciate your help and thanks in advance

    Does your adapter support sound through HDMI? I know first ones I ordered for my store didn't, we didn't find out until unhappy customers returned them.

    Make sure you have the sound output selected for your TV before you open whatever you are using for your movie player. If you don't it will not work. But I have had one TV(out of the 10+ I have tried) that would not play the sound.

    Alt/Option click on the Speaker in the Menu Bar. Output Device = HDMI/TV name (Usually '160033236723627')
