How can I connect my 13 inch MacBook up to HDMI and will it provide sound as well?

by on September 9, 2011

Q: I have a (2008/2009) 13″ white macbook and I want to know how to hook it up through a HDMI cable. Do I need a mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable or a mini DVI to HDMI cable? And would this also allow for sound on the television?

    To make sure you get the right cable you’ll need to look at the side of your laptop. See this picture to see the difference between a mini DisplayPort and mini DVI plug.

    For sound you’ll need to hook up a separate cable using your headphone jack.
