Our Video Display Converter goes to 11!

Our Video Display Converter goes to 11!

Video Display Converter Here’s how to watch (and hear) your MacBook Pro on your television.

Previously, the MacBook and MacBook Pro had a Mini DisplayPort that sent video only. You could use our Video Display Adapter to convert this video signal to HDMI (or DVI.) However, you needed to additionally connect the Mac’s headphone jack to your stereo to receive the audio.

The MacBook Pro that was released this month does output audio as well as video from its Mini DisplayPort. This is great news! It means that with ONLY our Converter, both video and audio are sent to the HDMI cable, and that’s the only cable going to your TV.

If you have a new MacBook Pro and our Video Display Converter, go to System Preferences; Sound and choose HDMI as your Output device.

Thanks to Scott Stein and Sarah Tew at CNET for their coverage too!

If your MacBook Pro was released before April 2010, to receive audio, you’ll need to connect to your stereo receiver using an audio cable like our Aux Cable or StereoConnect Cables.

    Great product! But I need a longer cord. Got an extension for this?

    Not at the moment, but anything is possible in the future. Thanks for the suggestion Chris.
