T530 - Getting audio through mini display port



I am trying to stream Netflix from my laptop so that it shows up on my TV using an HDMI cord and a mini-display to HDMI adapter. I got the video part working but the sound still comes through my computer instead of the TV.


Other sources suggest going into the control panel and setting the TV as the default playback device for sound. I tried this but when I went to the sound settings but the television did not even show up as an option for a playback device, even when I had it show disabled and disconnected devices.


I understand that it might be the adapter but the reviews for the adapter I bought online suggest that other people have gotten audio working with the same device, so I am going to have to assume for now that it is not the problem.


I have a Lenovo T530 using windows 7; if you need any other information let me know.


I am generally not too savy with computers so the more explanation the better.


Thanks in advance!
