    Default 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.

    The problem is that the monitor is set up like this, with the speaker being separate. So yeah, hopefully I can easily change audio output settings.

    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.

    Code:
    	
    Intel HD Graphics 5000
    Dual display and video mirroring: Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on an external display, both at millions of colors
    Thunderbolt digital video output
    
    Native Mini DisplayPort output
    DVI output using Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter (sold separately)
    VGA output using Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter (sold separately)
    Dual-link DVI output using Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter (sold separately)
    HDMI audio and video output using third-party Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter (sold separately)
    Your monitor looks like it's an old Dell VGA monitor that MIGHT support a DVI input. Check for that connection first on your monitor, and if it does, a mini > DVI will not output the sound through the mini port (nor will a mini>vga adapter). This only happens when you go the mini > HDMI adapter, but the computer can tell when it's plugged into an HDMI port that supports audio playback.

    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.

    The raspberry pi has hdmi output so I bought an hdmi to vga cable. I will unplug that when using my Macbook, and use the minidisplay port to hdmi adaptor to connect to the hdmi to vga cable. I think the confusion is that I didn't say they will not both be plugged in at the same time. Its one or the other.
