Need audio from MacBook Pro to HDTV via HDMI
Hello all,

I want to connect a MacBook Pro to my HDTV.

I have been successful in getting the Mac screen to appear on the TV using a Mini Display Port to HDMI adapter; however, the audio is not coming through.

Apparently, Apple didn't incorporate audio output into the Mini Display port on the MacBook Pro until sometime in 2010, so it's not present on my machine. :-(

Doing a Google search for "mini displayport USB audio to HDMI adapter for Mac". The audio is routed via USB; unfortunately, many of the products have less than stellar reviews.

I'm wondering whether any forum member has used such a product that they can recommend.

Thanks in advance for any help...

After further research, this one looks promising:
