    Whats a good thunderbolt to HDMI adapter? All the ones I've seen on Amazon, have gotten crappy reviews.

    Apple doesn't make one as far as I've seen? Just seen VGA and DVI

    As long as there aren't known issues with the pin settings, I'd probably try monoprice over that Apple one as you can just grab a mini displayport to hdmi cable rather than a dongle. Apple's thunderbolt cables are incompatible with at least some non thunderbolt displays. I'm not sure you can get audio either way. Thunderbolt doesn't seem to be fully compliant with displayport 1.2 which supports audio. It might be supported in spite of this, but I thought that might be the reason for an hdmi port on the rMBP.

    I have this adapter as well - haven't had any issues with it at all.

    You really should try to make titles of new threads more explanatory, unless you enjoy annoying the crap out of your fellow macrumors users.

    Uh. Sorry. Didn't think about the title of my thread being annoying.

    So anyways. What's the best route to hook up my HDTV to my MacBook. The port adapter or cord?

    I don't see why either would be a problem. If you need more length, obviously the adapter would be needed. If you don't need the length and want to carry less wires, get the cord.
