Hardware :: Analog Cable To Optical Cable Adapters?

Jan 9, 2009

I have a Mac Pro with an optical line in. I bought a cable and connected it to the Mac Pro, but the receiver(where I want to plug the line in) is old and only received optical. Is there some sort of adapter that would convert the connect that doesn't cost $200? I was able to connect an analog cable from the front of the mac pro's headphone jack into the back of the receiver, but the sound isn't really the greatest.

Mac Mini :: Plugged In A Tosslink Optical Cable, And Nothing Happened?

Jun 4, 2010

I have hooked up a 2009 Mac Mini (2.16, 4 gb RAM, SL 10.6.3) to my sony receiver.When using an analogue cable, it works, but in stereo of course. I plugged in a tosslink optical cable, and nothing happened, so I thought maybe the cable is broken, so I bought a new one. So when I plugged it in, it worked....for about 2 hours. Since then, I had no luck whatsoever, no sound, nothing, nada.I tried using the cable with my macbook, worked like a charm. Several reboots and a pram reset later, same thing, no sound. I checked the settings, but there's nothing really to change there, it's set to digital out and that's it.I even tried a ridiculously long terminal command to reset core audio, to no avail.

PowerPC :: EMac And IMac File Sharing With Ethernet Cable And Other Cable?

Oct 12, 2010

I was wondering how I could file share, or make the whole Hard Drive (HDD) accessible to another computer. The two other computers I have are a Toshiba Laptop with Ethernet and USB, and a iMac Intel with Firewire, USB, and Ethernet. Putting these to use along with:Three Ethernet Cables Now how do I get the whole HDD visible to the others computers (either/both) and be able to write to it? Also, I do not want to use CDs and have no CDs that came with the computers. I want to put Xubuntu on the eMac and Debian on the iMacs and erase the rest of the Hard Drives. The computers getting this are the iMac G3s and the eMac G4 in my Signature.

Quick question - I have a cable line running from my wall to my cable modem, which in turn connects via ethernet cable to an AEBS. The AEBS provides wireless connectivity to four Macs.

Can I split the cable line in my room so that I may watch TV, or would this cut my download/upload bandwidth in half?

Nov 11, 2009

My friend is looking into buying the new 27" iMac Core i7 to replace his PC desktop. The only thing holding him back is that he has an analog surround sound system he uses for his speakers.

Mac Mini :: Mac Mini For Home Theater - Standard Optical Audio Cable

Apr 15, 2009

I have just read a ton of forum posts and want to make sure I am going to buy the right accessories to make my new Mac Mini all it needs to be to run my home theater.1. For 5.1 audio, do I need to buy this product and then just use a standard Optical audio cable to plug into my receiver?2. The new Mac Mini comes with a mini DVI to DVI connector correct? So all I will have to buy is a DVI to HDMI cable?3. Is OWC (other world computing) the best place to buy upgrades for the mac mini? I have looked at the videos on youtube and it seems like something I should be able to do no problem.

MacBook Pro :: Best Device For Decoding The Optical Output To Analog?

Jun 8, 2010

I'm looking to use the speakers (Logitech X-540) with my laptop with 5.1... but this is an analog system (has green/black/orange inputs), and Macbook Pros only output with optical through mini-TOSLink. What's the best (read cheapest) device for decoding the optical output to analog?

If this won't work, I'm probably willing to shell out a bit more cash (Z-5500 perhaps). If you have a digital 5.1 system recommendation ($350 or less), let me know.

Manual for X-540 speakers: [URL]

Mac Pro :: Cable To Get For New LCD Monitor?

Jul 30, 2008

I just bought a new 24 inch LCD monitor. It has a VGA, a DVD-D and a HDMI Port. I have a G5 Mac with a DVI-I and an ADC port. The monitor came with a VGA cable. The sales person sold me a DVI to DVI cable (single link, 18+ 1 pin), but I get this message on the screen - "check signal cable." Is this the wrong cable? I just moved so am thinking it might be that something's loose in the tower. Perhaps there is there a better way to connect the two. When I got home I read in the manual "Mac adapter For Apple Macintosh use, a separate plug adapter is needed to change the 15 pin high density (3 row) D-sub VGA connector on the supplied cable to a 15 pin 2 row connector." but that seems weird since neither of my ports are 2 rows. perhaps I should try DVI to HDMI? I do web design and video. Also, can you get these cables at Futureshop? I am now in a rather small town and don't have a Mac store.

PowerPC :: Looking DVI-to-DVI Cable?

Nov 14, 2008

I have a late 2005 Power Mac G5 with one of those annoying GeForce cards where the DVI plugs are too close together to run 2 displays. (See this: [URL]

I cannot find this extension cable, which is unfortunate because I just picked up a second Cinema Display on eBay, and now I can't use it! (Unless I want to crack open the plastic on the DVI connector end...)

I called Apple, they no longer make or offer this cable, and are unable to locate one for me at this time. Does anyone happen to have theirs? If so, are you willing to part with it?

OS X :: USB / FW Cable Disconnection

Mar 13, 2009

When using PC, WINDOWS warned about not to disconnect USB/FW connected hardware until you ask the system to do so and the system confirmed it was safe to do so. However, I've been told that with Mac you can directly connect/disconnect the cables without any previous confirmation from the system. I'm confused, since I can not find how to get confirmation form the MAc that it is safe to disconnect the USB/FW.

OS X :: ATA To USB Cable For 2.5" HD?

May 1, 2009

About a week ago, I ordered an ATA to USB cable for my old internal HD that was in my MBP. I was hoping to turn my old internal into an external for something like Time Machine.When I got it, I tried to hook it up... and of course it doesn't fit (you can see on the attached pic). Quoted from the OWC site where I bought it: "Compatible with any 2.5" IDE device!" Well, my HD is a 2.5" ATA and what do you know, not compatible.

OS X :: Which Video Cable To Use

May 14, 2010

my company has been given a PowerPC, which I believe is a Power Mac G4 (QuickSilver). It's Model number is M8493. For video output, it has a ADC and VGA connections (both female).

We have a Cinema Display, and it's model number is A1081 that has a DVI-D (male) cable.

Anyway, basicly I was wondering whether if I had a VGA cable to connect to the PowerPC and then used a VGA to DVI-D converter if the display will work.

I've looked under the ACD to DVI adapter router but I can't find any in the UK so I'm wondering if the VGA to DVI converter will be the answer.

MacBook Pro :: New VGA Cable Won't Do 1920x1080?

Sep 17, 2010

I have two VGA cables. My first is simply a cheap one which I have been using for the past few months on my full HD (1080p) TV. I use a Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter on my 17" Macbook Pro and have been able to get full HD output to my TV.

However, this cable was poorly shielded and I got some wavy lines from other TV inputs.

I've just got a new VGA cable, and this has far greater shielding (so that problem is fixed), however I cannot get it to go above a resolution of 1400x1050 - going to 1920x1080 @60Hz as I did with the other cable gives me a message from my TV - "Unsupported signal. Adjust your PC output."

When I try and use the 'Detect Displays' button in System Preferences, I don't see anything happen as a result...

Edit: After a bit of research, my new cable is actually an SVGA cable. It has the same pins, layout etc and as far as I'm aware it should work. Why doesn't it!?

Edit2: Tried another VGA cable, and that works. So my findings are that 'Super-VGA' cable doesn't work, at least by default. Any way I can fix this?

The issue is the cabling is a mess and I can't even close the cover anymore. That's annoying as my apartment is dusty, so I have to clean it often.

I'm also trying to add one more drive, but I have no space.
