How can I confirm which information is correct? Dear Customer, We are not sure what the apple support center representative was referring to; however, the new Mac Book Pro does support audio via the Mini DisplayPort. This is a footnote taken from the apple website: Requires a third party adapter, sold separately. Full audio and video support through Mini DisplayPort is available on all mid 2010 MacBook Pro models. If you would like to reference this it is at: http://www.apple.com/macbookpro/features.html It is the 6th footnote in grey at the very bottom of the page. Thank you. What is the difference between the Kanex iAdapt 51 MDP to HDMI w/ 5.1 Channel Digital Audio and the iAdapt HDMI V2? Dear Customer, Please note that the main differences between the iAdapt 51 and the HDMI V2 are in size and form factor. The V2 eliminates cable clutter and shrinks down the size of the adapter much smaller and in a much more sleek form. It is able to transmit both audio and video as long as your mac model is capable of transmitting audio and video through the mini displayport. Please note that only the newer releases of Mac products are capable of doing this. To verify whether your Mac is capable of using the V2 to transmit both audio and video please check the product page at: http://kanexlive.com/products/item-id-3608.html If you are having trouble locating your Mac model number you can view our informative blog post at: http://www.kanexlive.com/blog/2010/07/how-to-retrieve-your-mac-infor.html Please also note that if your Mac model is not compatible for audio you can still use the V2 to transmit video only or you can purchase the iAdapt 51 which will work with any Mac model that has mini displayport and optical audio.

If I connect my macbook to a monitor with HDMI input, will the macbook assume that audio will be directed to the monitor, disabling my built in speakers?
