If I plug headphones into the headphone jack of a MacBook Air that's connected to a Thunderbolt Display, will that silence the speakers on the TBD?

    Not always. There appears to be a bug somewhere that often causes me to have to remove the headphones and plug them back in a few times to get it to silence the speakers.

  • Yes, this is how it works with my TBD and my 2011 MBP. Headphones cause the speakers on the TBD to mute.
