a Cable that DEF transfers audio over to the tv? Also here is my macbook pro model. Does it do Audio? Build 10FS69. Someone said there is a belkin one, is that right? Also, I just bought one from Monoprice and that f'in cable doesn't work
Does anyone know of a tried-and-true converter or cable to get a PS3 hooked up to a Mid-2010 27" iMac? I'd like 1080p video and don't need audio as I have a separate set of speakers I'm hooked up to. I know there is one solution out there but haven't heard any reviews as to it actually working or if it's 1080.
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.
I have a G4 in my living room and my old PowerMac 7300 in my bedroom. If I want of use either one to go online I have to disconnect one to connect the other. I cannot connect both at he same time. I use broadband cable from Cable Vision in New York. I was told about a router. Can anyone give me advice on the name of good router and whether on not it will slow down the access speed on the internet?
I receive cable TV at home and I am told that instead of using a TV I can hook my MacBook via a HDMI cable and watch TV that way on my laptop screen. I'd like to do that. Is the information correct? How do I go about it? Can my MacBook do that?
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.
I have already tried using Qtips, other end of match sicks, cleaning the headphone jack with alcohol and a little jiggling with the other end of the plastic ballpen still ni audio from the Mac's speaker and the Built in output still active.
I just brought a brand new IMac today but could not connect the internet with the cable though the cable does work with other computers. Do I have to change the settings or .....? Or its the problem of the jack?
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?
I have a gateway 24" flat screen that I am trying to hook up via VGA to my i5 macbook pro. I have hooked up this computer to projectors before with no problem, but for some reason when I plug it into the monitor it says no signal even when I refresh it in system properties. I thought the cable might be weird, but it works with a windows computer that I have.
I just bought a 32 inch RCA flat screen tv, and I wanted to hook it up to my macbook. So I did some research, bought the VGA adapter and a VGA cable. Everything is hooked up and in place but when i turn on my TV it just says "unsupported"
My question is if it's possible to connect my MacBook Pro (13") with ethernet connection to my PS3 with an ethernet (or other) cable. So that my PS3 sees my MacBook without using any router, etc... and that I can play movies (e.g. in Blu-Ray) or music that's on my MacBook through my PS3 on my TV?
I've tried Medialink but I guess that's also for wireless streaming also because when I connect my MacBook with my PS3 my PS3 doesn't show up under "devices".
I've been using an HDMI cable to connect my macbook pro to a LG TV. I haven't used it in couple of weeks, the cable seems fine but when I connect it to the TV it says NO SIGNAL. Any help? I've tried restarting the computer, turning it off and back on with the cable plugged...
2010 i7 15'' MBP. I've been connected to the internet wireless with my Airport Extreme from day 1, but today I wanted to give the ethernet port a try and it just didn't work. The ethernet cable is recognized, but it says there is no IP. I do not know my IP settings or any of that. What do I do?
The screen on my macboook pro, 13inch, was messing up earlier, flickering and all.
I got trigger happy and decided to take the glass bezel off my MBP (I've done it before) and managed to disconnect the LCD screen from the rest of the MBP.
However now I can't accurately connect the LCD screen back to the cable it's connected to at the base of where the lcd screen would go.
I'm checking out the videos on PowerBook Medic for the macbook Pro and am seeing how they take off all these things such as the SuperDrive, fans, logic board, etc....but rather than taking off every single item am wondering which of these to take out in order to be able to pull out that cable ever so slightly, simply so I'll then be able to connect it to the LCD screen..
I'll keep researching online and also hope for any guidance tonight, seei as id really like to get this issue resolved before the night ends...not forcing me to leave a tangled MBP on my desk overnight.
I seem to be having an issue figuring out what kind of connection this is on my Mac, it has a video symbol on it but I bought what I thought was the right cable which was the mini DP to HDMI but its not the right connector.
I hook up a Samsung LCD to my MBA via the Mini DVI cable and everything works great. However, when I unhook the cable (regardless of whether the Mac is on/off), the Mac doesn't pick up that it is now only on a single display, when opening apps (say Firefox), and opens them as if they were on the secondary monitor (so I can only see the very left hand edge). I can't imagine that I would need to minimize or drag the window to the MBA display prior to unplugging the cable, every single time...?
The only work around I have been able to find is drop the display resolution to 8x6 and grab the edge of the window and drag it over. I've tried "Detect Displays", restarting and other "tinkering" to no avail.
I have a macbook pro running Mac OS X 10.6.2I have tried a variety of cables (3.5mm to 2x Phono) to my mixer and each time it produces a loud hum.Ive tried the same cable plugged into my iphone direct and its perfectly fine so it was looking like the audio output of the mac, however, when I plug in headphones (ive tried 3 different pairs) i dont hear the humming at all
So just today I was using my MacBook, then I put it down, and noticed smoke coming from the ground. The end part of my power cable was slightly on fire. I quickly took it out my laptop and from the wall. So now the cable's burnt itself, is it covered by AppleCare? I am still in warranty from when I bought the laptop.
I have a late 2009 13.3" MacBook, and I want to use my tv as a monitor but I wasn't looking to have 3 adapters to make it possible so I was hoping to have the Mini DVI to HDMI cable. Well newegg said this cable was what I wanted so I bought it for $20 and of course it isn't what i want at all. Where can I find the cable I want?
