    So i purchased a Mini display port to HDMI cable for my MBP....but didnt realize until after trying it that this only transferred video, not audio. So my question is, how can i get the audio to play on my TV speakers rather than having to just listen through my computer speakers??

    Which MacBook Pro? Some support audio on Mini DisplayPort and some don't
    If your model does, then the first culprit to check is the MiniDP to HDMI adapter. Look for one that guarantees Audio compatibility on Macs.

    When connected to the tv go to settings-sounds-output and click from internal speakers to your tv

    My MB is a mid-2010 model so i thought it would be new enough to transfer audio over. It could be the settings as listed below thats the problem?

    This could be the issue too..i purchased an Insignia from Best Buy but it doesnt say anywhere on it whether is supports audio or not...i guess i just assumed it would.

    I will give that a try first and hopefully that will fix it :)

    Be sure that your mini-dp to hdmi cable supports audio. Not all of them do.
