New macbook pros that use the mini display port connector are able to pass digital audio through a hdmi cable. If you are the type who likes to hook your laptop up to your sweet led backlit LCD TV, you know how nice it is not needing separate cables for video and audio. When you hookup your laptop to the tv though, the audio will continue to come out of your tiny laptop speakers until you go to system preferences > sound > output and then change the default output to tv.
There is a small simple program called sound source, that lets you change your audio output device with one click. Best part is that it is completely free! Download a copy here.
