Works great with my macbook pro
on December 8, 2011
Hooked it up, searched in youtube for relevant video to determine settings to send vid and audio to tv. Did not plug into my home theatre receiver yet only because it was just a quick hookup. Initially, without tweaking any settings on the mac all I got was the wallpaper of the mac. After viewing the youtube video, this is how I did the settings:
1) go to Systems Preferences, click on Display (the menu will be seen on the tv)
2) click on Arrangement and click on Mirror Display
3) go back to the menu and click Sound and select hdmi cable and that will get the sound through hdmi to your tv.
and that's all there is to it. The link I used was
And under $9 for the cable. Not bad.
Update 5/9/2012 - connected to a/v receiver and watched a netflix streamed movie. Worked perfectly. A note of caution, if you purchase an extension to use with this cable you may not get the result you want. I got "unsupported signal...." with a skinny 10 ft cable. Other reviewers said the same thing for that cable. You might be better off opting for a longer mini display port to hdmi instead.
