    I have the white MacBook (late 2009), the one with the thunderbolt output.
    Anyway, when I plug in the thunderbolt to HDMI adapter and to my TV everything works except the sound.
    I went to the sound preferences and my TV doesn't show up there.

    (I also have a MacBook Pro and with the same adapter and the same TV, the sound works there and my TV does shows up on the sound preferences.)

    Any solution to that?
    Thanks

    I PROMISE you do not have a 09 macbook with thunderbolt as it didnt exist

    what you have is a mini display port.... and yes they only support video

    Seconded. I used to have a 2008 Alu MB and it was displayport with video only. Now have an early 2011 and distinctly remember it was the first one with thunderbolt.

    If you really need the audio there are adapters you can buy to add the audio from your sound out port to the hdmi cable
