  • Noble B's answer is WRONG. Although it is true that mini-DVI doesn't output audio, either mini-TOSlink or USB *will*. So you need a mini-DVI & USB or mini-DVI&mini-TOSLINK to HDMI adaptor.

    The mini-displayport&USB to HDMI are much easier to find, but keep googling and you'll find the mini-DVI versions. (easier to find the mini_TOSlink than USB)

    So if you have a receiver that lacks assignable inputs, there are indeed solutions for getting audio and video onto the HDMI cable... just not easy to find ones.

  • Best Answer:

    You don't. The A1181 (the older Macbook) only had Mini DVI, not Mini Displayport, and as such, does not support audio through the display connector. You can use a standard 3.5mm to stereo RCA cable or an optical TOSLink to minijack cable if optical is an option.
