    Probably not.

    For an unequivocal answer to whether you can output audio through the mini DP:

    1. Click on the Apple Icon in the top left corner of the screen.
    2. Click "About this Mac."
    3. Click "More Info."
    4. Click on "Audio (Built In)."

    If you see "HDMI Output or HDMI/DisplayPort Output" then you will be able to pass audio through the MDP over HDMI.

    If not, you will have to use an additional audio cable (headphone 3.5 jack to RCA red and white stereo plugs) running between the headphone output of your Mac to the TV audio input associated with the HDMI port you use.
