I have a 2008 macbook pro and a sony flatscreen tv. i have this cable
, which connects from the laptop monitor port to an hdmi splitter to the tv. (the splitter is a trio - cable, roku, laptop; roku works fine.)
the screen goes up to my tv, no problem. the sound, however, doesn't. sound still plays from my laptop.
because my laptop is older, it doesn't have anything to really go directly to the tv. i thought the cable was all i needed, but the tinny sound from my laptop is sort of miserable.
