comment What is the best way to connect a MacBook Pro to a Samsung TV set?
HDMI might be ABLE to transmit audio, but the Mini-Display port doesn't, so unless you have a native HDMI port, audio will not work.

For future reference, press <kbd>space</kbd> after pressing <kbd>⌘</kbd> + <kbd>⌥</kbd> + <kbd3>3</kbd>, to go into a mode which automatically detects UI elements. It makes for nicer screenshots :)
