Question about Apple TV MD199LL/A
I am trying to connect my Apple TV to my magnavox 32mf605w using a dvi to Hdmi cable. The picture comes in great and everything works, just NO SOUND. The Apple TV only has an optical audio output. Will I be able to make this work?

Later MacBook (Pro) use a mini-DVI connector that does not pass analog needed for composite or S-video. Was yours ever working? And most DVI connectors do not pass sound as seen by your cabling. You cannot detect display through RCA. You just set it in Sys Prefs :: Displays, try some other settings, although your seem right.
I have a white early-2009 MacBook and mini-DVI to HDMI adapter (monoprice <$10) and HDMI cable and have not connected the TOS-link for sound, yet--just slideshows at 1920x1080. You will get a much better picture digitally. -Ken

It may just be possible that DVI signal does not convert to HDMI signal. So in theory this may not be possilbe for you to get a result with your present attempt. May i suggest connecting to the DVI port of the TV. i.e Mini Display to DVI.

Your mac would have to have a fully hd compliant mini port. To be honest I havent even checked to see if any do. Then you would want to get a mini video port to HDMI adapter. If you don't have one of the newer Intel mac then chances are you cant do sound through that port, which is what your tv is looking for on the hdmi port.
Easiest solution is to hook your headphone port on your laptop to a stereo or some decent computer speakers, which usually sound better than tv speakers anyway.

Try the following:
1. Select System Preferences from the Apple Menu.
2. Select the Sound icon.
3. Click the Output tab at the top of the window
4. Highlight the option that is not the Internal Speakers.
5. Make sure the Output Volume is not set low and that the Mute checkbox is unchecked.
6. Close the Sound window. (via Red Radio Button, Top/Left of window).
Try it again and see if you get sound this time.
I hope this helps. Regards,

Are you tyring to play something off your laptop onto your TV? If yes then what you can see right now( Bigger picture of your laptop) that is correct. For no sounds try plugging in the speakers into the laptop headphone jack directly and then see it that works. If it does then the dvi-hdmi conenctor might have gone bad and needs to be replaced.
If you have other queires please reply back to this thread.
Please rate if helpful.

The HDMI input is designed for best performance

For proper operation, it is recommended that you use
a short HDMI cable. You should not encounter
difficulty if you use an HDMI cable shorter than 16.4
HDMI cable transfers both video and audio.
Separate analog audio cables are not required (see
illustration below). Some CDVs (video CDs) may
not output digital audio signals. In that case, you
may hear sound by connecting analog audio cables.
However, if you connect analog audio cables with
this connection, the HDMI terminal on the TV will
not receive the HDMI digital audio signal and you
will hear analog audio only.
To ensure that the HDMI or DVI device is reset
properly, it is recommended that you follow
• When turning on your electronic components,
turn on the TV first, and then the HDMI or
• When turning off your electronic components,
turn off the HDMI or DVI device first, and
then the TV.
To connect a DVI device, you will need:
• one HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable
(HDMI type A connector)
For proper operation, the length of an HDMI-to-
DVI adapter cable should not exceed 9.8 ft (3m).
The recommended length is 6.6 ft (2m).
• one pair of standard analog audio cables
