Will audio play if my MBA is connected to an external monitor with no speaker?
I have just ordered a Macbook Air. I have an external monitor that has speakers seperate. If I use a minidisplay port to hdmi adaptor to connect to the monitor, will the sound be able to be played out of the speakers of the Air? If not, can I connect an audio jack and have it play through the seperate speakers?

yeah it should play through the tv, if you got an adapter that supports it(which it most likely should if you didn't get a superfucked cheap one)
if you don't want it to, then you should be able to change your default audio output device.

wait, so youre inputting an hdmi signal into the raspberry and kicking it out to the monitor?
if not, then if your monitor has hdmi inputs, then it should work.
i must be fucking retarded or something because im having a hard time following whats going on here.

Hell, I use HDMI cords to only play audio a lot of times and vice versa.
ALSO, if it so happens to try to play audio through the mini port on your MBA through the mini>hdmi>vga adapters you have going on, going into your audio settings (About this MAC>System Preferences>Sound) you're able to select your default audio out. Either your video/audio mix through the mini port, your basic 3.5mm headphone out port, or USB given you have the drivers installed for USB speakers.
Hope this helps.
