I'm with a macbook pro (2009) that has a mini display port. I've already bought a hdmi cable, and external output to a lcd tv is possible.

My question is: I have to manually change the sound output, from speaker to tv, and from tv to speaker when I take off the cable.

Is it possible to automatically transfer - or at least have a small switch next to the clock - the sound from speaker to tv when I connect the cable, and from tv to speaker when I disconnect?

Wow, I've found a solution myself! It's called "SoundSource". Great!

Realtek onboard sound drivers on Windows can do that automatically, by jack-sensing. You can accept your own answer, by the way. – paradroid Apr 8 '11 at 3:08
@paradoid: I know that, but I can only accept my own answer tomorrow (I think this is done to avoid spam abuse). – Somebody still uses you MS-DOS Apr 8 '11 at 14:59
