Applications :: Play Itunes On My Home Stereo?

Jul 18, 2008

I have downloaded most of my CD collection to my Itunes Library on my G5.

I would love to play it through my home stereo. It is in a differant room.

A coworker says that using Airport express degrades the sound too much.

My question is, is there an audio output on the back of the G5 and an audio wire that I could run it from the G5 directly through audio jacks to the back of the receiver.

ITunes For Mac :: CD Burned Is Not Playing On Home Stereo

Aug 27, 2014

I have been burning CDs in Itunes on my iMac for a long time, but all of a sudden, the cds I burn won't play on my home stereo. They will play in my car. I've read about the 80 minute cds giving problems, but I have burned them before with no problem. Yes, I checked "Audio CD".

Applications :: ITunes Can't Download And Stream To Stereo Simultaneously

Apr 30, 2010

I like to stream from my iMac wirelessly to my stereo. I have a 1st generation aluminum iMac running OSX10.6.3 and stream to an Airport Express basestation. I run the latest version of iTunes.

Whenever iTunes starts to automatically download podcasts that I subscribe to the streaming stops or plays with lots of sound drop-outs. It is incredibly annoying!

Sometimes I can't even surf the internet without getting sound drop-outs? What can I do to improve this?

I always keep my Macs clean so I don't have tons of third party plugins installed - for the very same reason

I have 8 Mbit download and 2 Mbit upload.

Hardware :: Using IPhone To Push Music To Home Stereo Via AirPort Express?

Apr 14, 2009

I just set up a second AirPort Express - connected to the home stereo - to allow the Mac laptops to push iTunes music to the home stereo system wirelessly. This worked on the first try. See, I'm a recently converted PC guy... I'm used 15-20 attempts followed by a few calls to the tech support...

So, as soon as the novelty wore off (it hasn't completely) I tried to network the iPhone... couldn't do it. I can't find where to swap the speaker from "Computer" to "Stereo" (the name assigned to the AirPort).

Is this possible? Should I just be happy with the laptop?

MacBook Pro :: When Start To Stream A Tv Show From ITunes Via Home Sharing It Will Play Just For Few Minutes?

Apr 9, 2012

I have a iMac as our main computer which has the main iTunes account. I have a ethernet connection off a Time Capsule/Air Play Wireless to that. I just got a Apple TV 2 and that has been working nearly seamlessly via a wireless connect from the Time Capsule The problem is with the Mac Book Pro (early 2011, 17", 2.2 ghz Intel Core i7, 8GB DDR3, AMD radeon HD 6750 1024 MB Graphics, all updated on all software)What my twist is that when I start to stream a tv show from iTunes via home sharing it will play for 5-20 min and then just stop and return to the main iTunes menu This occurs on TV Shows purchased from Apple, From DVD's I have ripped with HandBrake and Bit Torrents I have also ripped with HandBrake (Into Apple TV 2 format) I've read over and over the Apple suggested trouble shooting. The only non Apple product/software in the mix is Norton for Mac on the Mac Book and the iMac however I have turned off the Firewall on that as well as experimented with turning on and off the Mac Firewall I have a older router from my ISP however the Apple TV is working fine so I *think* that has been elminated

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Design Flaw In 'Play Stereo Audio As Mono' Of Universal Access Hearing-tab?

Apr 7, 2012

The option to 'play stereo audio as mono' that comes with OSX 10.6 does not work as I expected.When I enable this option it sounds like only one of the two channels becomes mono, while the other one does not sound mono to me.It's hard to notice this, because the total sound does change to 'less' stereo. I've done some testing with different soundcards and testing signals, and found out that when the option is enabled, the mono signals are routed incorrect.While the right channel becomes mono, the left channel seems to be something else; I'm not sure if it's the original left channel of the stereo signal, though. I have reason to believe that the resulting mono sound on the right channel correctly is the 'monofied original sound', but that from the left channel.The resulting mono sound on the left channel sounds like the original left channel of the stereo sound, maybe added with the mono sound of the right channel. 

Why do I think so? When using a sound card with more than two outputs, I can clearly see that sound is being sent to the second and the THIRD output, instead of the first and the second output, immediately after I enable mono. Resulting in output on THREE channels:original leftmonofied (left) monofied (right) On my soundcard I can disable the extra outputs, and than I hear:original left + maybe monofied rightmonofied (left) I think the programmer of this great feature made an 'off-by-one error', consequently sending the monified output to the wrong channels;to channel[1] + channel[2] instead of channel[0] + channel[1] I don't know what happens to sound that is sent to channel[2] (the third channel) on a two channel soundcard.It could be mapped to the the first channel, but that of course is speculation. Could be tested though, with the right audio signal.

Applications :: ITunes Will Not Home Share

Sep 21, 2009

iMac and PC in home, both on the same network, will not "home share."

Both computers are authorized.

Both are logged into iTunes using the same login account.

Both have preferences set to share and detect libraries.

Yet neither computer shows ANY recognition of a shared library from the other. Apparently, this is not a rare problem, but I haven't found any solutions for it.

Applications :: ITunes - Home Sharing Cannot Connect

Jun 5, 2010

I just replaced my old MBP with a new i7, everything is working save for this (so far). I de-authorized the old machine, authorized the new one, selected home sharing, mounted machines in both directions, opened iTunes on both machines. On both machines I get this message (see attached). Problem is I can't see where to achieve this. I went to security and turned off the OS Firewall on both boxes, and have no 3rd party FW app. Is there a place to "allow communication on port 3689"?

Is there anyway to limit what is and is not shared on home sharing (in iTunes)? My roommates keep swiping my ringtones, and it psyches me out when I hear my custom tone and it's not my phone doing it. I don't mind sharing music and videos, but I'd like to keep my ringtones to myself.

Applications :: ITunes Home Sharing And Using Import Feature?

Dec 4, 2009

I've finally got hold of a 27" iMac that works, so now comes the process of transferring over all my media. I want to use my iMac as a media hub of sorts, and so have been transferring all of my music from my MacBook using the import feature on iTunes 9's Home Sharing. I just want to know if Apple places any restrictions on the files so, for instance, if I de-authorise my Macbook and/or delete the media files from it, will the music still be accessible as normal from the iMac (since it's been coped over and is stored locally), or will it create some kind of link to the original files and shout at me if they disappear? Or would I be safer using a traditional method of transferring the data?

Applications :: ITunes Home Sharing - Can't Import Library

Dec 26, 2009

I added a laptop to our home network that'll primarily be used by my wife. Most of our iTunes content is on my system. I wanted to share the library across the network and give her the option of importing tracks off mine. This will let the whole family use either computer to sync their iPods.

I set up the Home Sharing option using verion 9.0.2 on both machines. I didn't use a password. I can see the other computer's libraries under 'Shared' on each system and access their files to play. But when I select the library, I don't get the 'Import' option that is listed in the Help menu instructions. Without being able to import the tracks, we have to go back to the main machine to sync.

Applications :: GarageBand 08 Line In Stereo Recording?

Jul 13, 2008

I've been trying to record my guitar using a regular 1/4" instrument cable and a 1/4" to 1/8" adaptor into the line-in of my Blackbook. I go to System Preferences so the app uses the line-in and not the build-in mic. Under "details", it is set to record in stereo. It records fine and sounds good, but when I put on my headphones, the tracks I recorded only come out of one ear. The software tracks are fine (as are the tracks I've recorded via the built-in mic and a USB mic). Well, this really puts a hamper on the song. Is it just because regular Macbooks don't come with a very good sound card?

Applications :: How ITunes 9 Home Sharing Handle Media (NAS Related)

Sep 17, 2009

Any idea how iTunes 9 Home Sharing would handle media on a Network Attached Storage Drive? Suppose I change the location of my media to the NAS in iTunes settings and then set up Home Sharing. Then I add a song to one machine the song gets added to the library file the .mp3 gets copied to the NAS. If Home Sharing is on and they all refer to the same location for the media files, how would iTunes on the other machines handle that? Would it just add it to the library files on the other machines and see that .mp3 file is already in the proper location on the NAS drive?

Applications :: ITunes Home Sharing - Cannot Copy Music Between Accounts

Jul 13, 2010

The setup: Three computers, one running Windows XP SP3, SL 10.6.4 and L 10.5.8. All three are running iTunes 9.2. The windows xp box is the "server" of the iTunes main library. This is where it is strange. I can see all three library's (depending on which computer I am on). I can see the shared library's and they all have the little house with the music note. The problem is I can't share any music from one account to the other?

If I open up one of the shared library's and try to drag and drop some music into it, the files will not drop. Doesn't matter what computer I am on. I have tried the "automatically add to library" folder and that works about 50% of the time. It will send files over but a good majority of the time it will not copy to all shared library's. I have checked the router settings and also made sure all the settings from within iTunes is correct. I have also made sure all of the accounts are logged into the same iTunes account etc. But nothing seems to be working.

Applications :: ITunes Home Sharing Doesn't Work On Wireless Network?

I tried to set up a home share between mine and my girlfriend's MacBooks. It worked okay both ways, but then I disconnected my ethernet cable and the connection dropped.

I started fiddling around and discovered that home sharing only works as long as any one of the two computers is connected to the router with a cable. The other one can be connected wirelessly. But it won't work if both are wireless at the same time.

Applications :: ITunes Won't Add And Play Certain Mp3's

Sep 27, 2009

I can't add nor play certain MP3's anymore, and these same MP3's are ones I used to listen to a few weeks ago in iTunes 9. Is this some major bug? Here's my post copy and pasted from Apple.

Just to note, previously on iTunes 8, I had no issues. Starting with iTunes 9, at first I noticed that 9 would delete random albums' cover art on its own, and I'd always have to restore it. Now more recently, a lot of my albums I use to play with no problem, are not working anymore. They've lost their cover art, and just won't play. I try to delete them and re-add them, and now they won't add. I know there's nothing wrong with the files themselves because I was just listening to these same files and syncing them to my iPhone a few weeks ago. When 9 was first release they all worked fine. And it really ***** when some of the albums are your more favorite ones to listen to. Is anyone else suffering from this? I've searched and searched and all of these solutions of maybe the tags being messed up is not the issue. So is this a major bug with iTunes 9.01? It's pretty frustrating. Thanks to anyone that can provide assistance.

Hardware :: Getting Airtunes To Play With Home Speakers

Dec 10, 2010

I've been trying to get my airtunes express to stream sound through my home stereo with no luck. I am using a PC running my the airport express through a JVC receiver. Everything on the part of the Airport express seems to be connected correctly, I am able to log online and get a steady green light. I setup iTunes to allow for the living speakers to play but when iTunes tries to connect to the other speakers it doesn't seem to recognize them being available.

I've tried connecting it through both a digital optical connection and regular red/white audio cable connection to the back of the receiver. When using my itouch it syncs perfectly to my computer as I able to change the songs, and volume my computer is playing. When I try to select the living room speakers on my computer its grayed out an never seems to complete the connection process. When I connect to them on my itouch it connects but only sound comes out of the computer. I've made sure the volume is turned up on the master volume tab on iTunes. Do I need to do a hard reset?

Applications :: ITunes Won't Let Me Play Songs?

Jan 5, 2010

I try to play songs in iTunes (ver. 9.0.2) on my MacBook Pro (OS X.5.8) and some (note all) won't play and a box pops up and says:

"This computer is not authorized to play "(song title here)". Would you like to authorized it?"

I type in my password and then is says: "You cannot authorized more than 5 computers.

Makes sense, except to my knowledge, this is the only computer that I have authorized and the only computer I use.

I tried to repair the permissions and some iTunes things did come up but I've restarted iTunes and am still having the same problem.

Also, the songs that won't play are ones I purchased, but there are some songs that I bought that I can play.

Applications :: ITunes Not Allowing To Play / Add MP3 File

Sep 9, 2008

I bought an mp3 and although the file plays in QuickTime or other media programs, the mp3 will not add itself into iTunes or even play it on either a Mac or PC. I've attached my settings (Windows, but my Mac settings in iTunes are the same) and I don't know what's wrong with this file.

It's frustrating because it's just an mp3 file (from everything I gathered from the meta tags/information) and I've never had any trouble adding files into iTunes by just double clicking on them but for some reason this is different.

The ticker-thing at the top which tells you what is playing will say that, that song is on but the timer just stays at 0:00.

Currently running Windows 7 and the latest version of iTunes but this happened before when I was on Vista too. Seems to happen every time I open iTunes now...
