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?
My question is can you stream to a mac book pro and use it as a set of speakers?
I use itunes for music and is connected to my stereo through my apple TV, I also have another stereo and is directly connected to the computer, I play the music simultaneously but sometimes I would like to be able to also listen to it in my macbook pro while being controlled through the mac mini connected to the stereo. Basically I want to st up my mac book pro as another set of remote speakers.
Can i use my mac pro to play music through my macbook via wireless? for example. I have an apple tv... a mac pro and a macbook pro. I wish to play all the music from my macpro upstairs through apple Tv ( i have that working) and through a macbook pro hooked to a PA outside .... I am aware that i need to score airport express but dont have funds ATM. will the macbook pro accept a stream from another mac?
I have an iMac connected to speakers.. and then I have my Macbook. Im looking for a way to play music from iTunes or Pandora on my Macbook... and listen through the speakers connected to my iMac while I am roaming about the house with my Macbook. Is there any way to do this other than Airtunes, or using screen sharing? (Right now im just using screen sharing and controlling the iMac)
Is there a simple way to play the sound coming into audio input over my speakers (headphone jack)? I have two macs running side by side and I would like my new mac to act like a receiver for the old one.
I was wondering if it's possible to play sound through the speakers and headphones of a computer simultaneously.
The reason I was wondering if it would work, is because I'm recording a song for school, and I can't hear the backing track through my speakers, but my computer still picks it up. However if i we're to use headphones and my speakers could be playing the same thing at the same time, everything would be fine.
One of the problems that myself and i'm sure many others have come across is getting audio to go to external speakers via the audio jack.
When i plug it in it says a device has been plugged into the audio jack and when i go into it, it brings up the line in tab, so just wondering if there was a solution yet or do we just have to put up with inbuilt speakers on our macs?
I plugged in a Shure AXS1 microphone into the analog stereo line-level input.In the system prefs I set the Input to Line in.The midi panel to built in line input.†When recording in Audition the sound level is really low and coming out only on the right channel (speaker). Why is it coming out on one channel?I can deal with a low level sound recording but coming out only on one channel on playback has stumped me. I've been playing with all the settings but no luck.Second. When recording is it normal not being able to hear yourself playfrom the speakers?
I have Bootcamp 3.1 and Windows Vista Home 32bit is fully up to date.
The audio on my Mac Pro 2008 will play out of the front speaker but will not through my Klipsch 2.1 system. I checked and rechecked to make sure I have the audio cord plugged into Audio Out on the back of the Mac. When using OSX the audio plays just fine through my 2.1 system.
Any ideas on what I can do to troubleshoot the issue?
Although this isn't a very important problem, I have noticed on my early 2K8 Mac Pro the Boot POST chime will not play through external speakers. Is there a way to enable this, as it is awfully tinny from the internal speaker.
I have an Airport Extreme with a USB hub plugged into it and two hard drives plugged into that. I was wondering if there would be a way to add a pair of USB speakers to it and play music through them wirelessly (like AirTunes).
I have just ordered a Macbook Air. I have an external monitor that has speakers seperate. If I use a minidisplay port to hdmi adaptor to connect to the monitor, will the sound be able to be played out of the speakers of the Air? If not, can I connect an audio jack and have it play through the seperate speakers?¬†
I just bought a pair of the Rokit 5 external speakers. When I plug them into a Mac Pro (Tower) I get a high-pitched hum from the speakers each time I try to play a sound. So if I go into System Preferences/Audio, and I try to play a sound, the high-pitch is heard as the sound plays, and for a second or two after, then it goes away, and is heard again each time I try to play a sound. Same with when I play something thru iTunes or any of my audio apps.¬†
If¬† do the exact same thing playing from a Macbook, I do not have that problem at all, the sound is nice and clear with no high-pitch sound.¬†
I have the speakers plugged in using 1/4 inch jacks to an external sound card (MBox), and this audio card is plugged USB into the Mac.¬†
I thought you should be able to.Play iTunes audio out through USB to a receiver equipt with USB mode as I can with my iPad Air, but I can,t find in preferences on my 2013 iMac any out put and I get no signal to the receiver/amp. Is it possible? What am I doing wrong?
Info: iMac (27-inch, Late 2012), OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)
I'm an avid MAC user and I'm using a MAC BOOK PRO. I burned an AVI movie using Toast Titanium 10 to be played on my home DVD Player(SONY HDMI NS710H). It doesn't play!It plays on our sons portable DVD AND on our computers, but NOT the SONY DVD player!? I've wasted 3 DVD+RDL discs and the same thing. I even tried different movies. Same thing. This is driving me nutz! Apparently this DVD player I bought is supposed to play ALL formats. I don't understand what's going on?
I have iTunes 10.6.1 (7) an Airport Extream Version 6.0 Airport Utility (600.92) That I use with two airport express stations, an Apple TV 2nd Generation with latest software up date.¬† Also have Ipad 3rd Generation and two I phone 4's.¬†Issue:¬† After installing the latest Airport Utility software update I'm unable to connect to my remote speakers in iTunes.¬†¬† The speakers are visible in the pop up menu but iTunes times out when trying to connect.¬† If I use remote to select Apple TV and then via Apple TV select my Computers Library I'm able to play music on the Apple TV / Home Speakers... but still not the Airport Express Stations.¬†
When using remote on the iPhone or iPad the speakers are visible as well but I'm unable to select them... iTunes times out.¬†I can steam music from that is on my iPhone or iPad to each individual speaker, but multiple speaker control is not available and the music from my library is not available.¬†I believe the problem is in the Airplay feature of iTunes and I believe the problems arise when you install the latest version of Airport Utility. ¬†¬†You can play on remote speakers, only one at a time, and only if you have the music on a stand alone device (iPhone or iPad)... in summary, bypass iTunes and you can be successful... marginally successful.
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¬†
Info: MacBook Pro (17-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
15 inch MacBook Pro.¬† Internal speakers will not play.¬† Output to headphone plug did work.¬† Now I cannot insert headphones into socket, it seems to be too shallow.¬† There is no red glow as mentioned in other posts.¬† I had the red glow issue on an older MacBook and resolved it by inserting toothpick into socket and triggered switch.¬† I have used command, option, r and p reset.
After I pulled out the jack for my speakers the volume icon was greyed out [URL]and soon I realized that internal speakers as such have been disabled from the system [URL]When I restart the startup chime is played as usual.Is it a hardware or software thing?
