MacBook :: How To Change Sound Output To TV Without HDMI Option

May 27, 2012

I have the first generation of the silver macbook (with the black keyboard- before it went to macbook pro). I have been watching movies from my computer onto my TV via a HDMI cable. For a while now I have been trying to get the sound from my computer to go onto my TV, but I do not have the option of HDMI on my computer.

MacBook Air :: Can't Set Audio Output To HDMI Because Option Not Exist

Aug 30, 2014

I have a (little) problem with my new MacBook Air 2014 (13 inch.) running on 10.9.4 : when I connect it to any HDMI device (Philips monitor or Sony TV through Marantz amplifier) through a mini DP-HDMI adapter, I can't set audio output to HDMI because this option does not exist... However, I have video signal. 

I've tried lots of "solutions", but nothing is working :

     - Shutting down, restarting, sleeping with and without the cable connected

     - Change HDMI cable

     - Reset PRAM 

Finally, I think the problem come from the Macbook because I have an other laptop (a Thinkpad with a mini displayport, with Ubuntu 14.04) and the video and sound are working normally.

MacBook :: Keeps Switching Between Internal Output And Digital Output For Sound?

Jun 19, 2012

My sound keeps turning off. When I check the settings, the output device switches randomly between Internal and Digital output. I have no idea where the Digitial Output is coming from and this started about a month again. It switches randomly and then I loose all sound for a few seconds. Sometimes it happens once then stops for a few days, other times it switches back and forth for 5 min. No idea!!!

MacBook Pro :: Sound Output Device Stuck On Headphones - Other Sound Related Options ?

Dec 13, 2009

This started happening randomly earlier tonight, and I haven't managed to find a fix just yet.I was encoding a video file for quite awhile (I don't think that parts important, but I thought I'd include it anyway) and then I tried to play a youtube video. I noticed there was no sound, so I tried to up the volume using the Volume Up key on the keyboard. The volume visualisation appeared on the screen like normal (albeit a bit laggy), but the sound still didn't change, neither did I get the usual 'click' noise you get when you change the volume.I went looking into the sound options in the system prefs. only to find that the Output Sound device was headphones. For a test I plugged in some headphones to see what happened and, low and behold, the Output Sound device changed to the Internal Sound and my speakers were working again, but only with the headphones plugged in.

MacBook Pro :: HDMI ExpressCard34 Output?

Anybody knows any HDMI ExpressCard34 output?

I've googled it without any luck, I need it to passthrough Video along with Audio, all in only one single cable, and also to get DTS-MA, Dolby TrueHD... (if available) and those signals that cannot be transmitted through an optical output jack.

MacBook Pro :: Output To External Monitor Via HDMI?

Apr 19, 2010

I picked up a MBP 15" core i7 high res laptop on Friday. I actually ordered one of those mini displayport -> HDMI awhile back (was going to get a mini, decided no), however when I hook it up to my plasma it won't adjust the resolution to 1920 x 1080, I checked "display" in system settings but it won't let me push it past the native resolution of the laptop screen.

Any suggestions how to get around this? Also it mentions on the website it can push sound over HDMI now, I wasn't able to figure that out either.

MacBook Pro :: RGB Colour Output Format Via HDMI/DP?

Apr 21, 2012

So i just bought a Dell u2410 screen the other day, and decided to hook it up via HDMI, It's being used for photo-editing, I tried to calibrate it, but in the sRGB mode i need to use the colours come out terrible, Reds are orange, etc. The screen itself, and it's settings arn't the problem. The problem is the Colour output of the MacBook, over HDMI and DisplayPort I've found it outputs the old YPbPr colour format, which for me is useless. if i connect it via VGA it'll output proper RGB colour format, but VGA is pretty crappy, and i ideally need to use a Digital output, I've searched all over the net for a solution, but haven't found one. one thing i did find is it will supposedly output RGB over DVI, but alas i don't have a DVI cable and do not wish to have to buy what i want to know, is it possible to change the output colour format for HDMI and DisplayPort to RGB instead of YPbPr? Note 1: If i boot into Win7 via BootCamp it outputs RGB and has the option for YPbPr... Note 2: It isn't the ICC colour profile that's the problem.

MacBook Pro :: Changing Color Space Output Via HDMI To RGB On 13'

Apr 5, 2012

I just got moved to a MBP 13" early 2011 from Windows. I have a Dell SP2309W monitor which i love. On the winows machine i could select the color space output between ypbpr and rgb and configure the monitor accordingly even with an HDMI cable. I cannot however find the same option in OSX Lion. The ypbpr color space is giving me a headache. I know what colors this monitor is capable of and I don't see them since i moved to MBP, the picture is now kind of purplish, the red color is unnatural ( I doubt a photo would give the idea). No playing around with the color profiles does any good. I'm begining to think that to my MBP my monitor is just a TV. I'm also thinking that a way of solving this is getting a mDP - DVI adapter, so perhaps the monitor would make the RGB mode a priority since it's connected through DVI.

MacBook Pro :: HDMI Output To TV Suddenly Stopped Working

May 28, 2012

I have a one month old "late 2011 model" unibody Macbook Pro where the HDMI output just suddenly stopped working with no changes in configuration.I've tried resetting the PRAM and SMC, switched HDMI cables, cold rebooting everything, tried different HDMI ports, different resolutions on the TV and switched audio output settings, nothing works. When I plug the cable in the Mac switches resolutions, recognizes the TV in the Displays preference panel and correctly identifies it as a Toshiba, but doesn't send any audio or video signals to the TV.

MacBook Pro :: Mini To HDMI Output No Longer Working After Update?

Sep 12, 2010

I have a 17" unibody MBP (most current version) with 10.6.4, and I downloaded the recent firmware updates for the MBP's. Before I did this, the mini port to HDMI video/audio output was working perfectly, I could watch anything right off my MBP. After installing the updates, when I plug in the cable, my MBP flickers, goes blue, and then comes back, but the TV does not detect the signal from the laptop. In the Display and Sound menus in System Preferences, there's no option to set up a second display like there was before.

MacBook Pro :: HDMI Does Not Have 3840x2160 Option?

Dec 1, 2014

Does the rMBP 13" Mid2014 HDMI connection allow 3840x2160 resolution?

Support article: HT6008 says it should for this model.You can use 4K displays and Ultra HD TVs at the following resolutions and refresh rates via the built-in HDMI port.3840 x 2160 at 30 Hz refresh rate4096 x 2160 at 24 Hz refresh rate (mirroring is not supported at this resolution)

I have it directly connected to my HDTV via HDMI cable and selected 24hz as I know it does not support 60hz.Only offers 1080p.I tried a miniDP to HDMI adapter and that did not work and it used to. I think this adapter may not support 4k or be an active adapter.Just ordered an active adapter that should work, but I am believe it should work through HDMI port on this unit based on HT6008 article.

MacBook Pro :: Audio Out Stuck On Digital Output After Running A HDMI Setup?

So while at a gig last night with my band, we ran a video from my computer to screens on stage. The chain looked like so: 

MBP -> Mini-DisplayPort -> MDP/HDMI converter -> 4-way HDMI Splitter -> LCD Monitors 

Now sometime during takedown, someone just decided to unplug something from my computer without consulting me or taking any proper precautions. Now my audio is stuck on Digital Output (type digital optical out). Here's what I know, and what I've tried.I have reset the PRAM/NVRAM?I have killed coreaudio a few times with no luck?I have deleted without progress:

MacBook Air :: Can't Get Audio HDMI Output To Work On ViewSonic VX2453 Monitor

Jun 23, 2012

I have a 13" mid 2011 MacBook Air and a new ViewSonic VX2453 monitor. I used the Monoprice mini display port to HDMI converter with audio and connected the monitor to my computer's thunderbolt port. The video works perfectly, but the sound isn't working at all. I set my computer's sound output in settings to VX2453 series (type: HDMI), and I set my monitor's audio input to HDMI. Nothing. I also tried changing the frequency in Audio MIDI Setup, which someone recommended on amazon  for the monoprice adapter, but that didn't work either. 

I tested the monitor's sound by switching audio input instead to "audio in" and connected to my headphone jack, and that worked so the monitor's sound is fine.

MacBook :: 'Built In Speakers' Are No Longer An Option For Audio Output

Mar 15, 2012

The speakers on my Macbook have suddenly stopped working. If you plug headphones in, fine. In the system preferences, 'built in speakers' are no longer an option for audio output. Just 'digital out'. When I try and change the volume of the speakers, the symbol is greyed out, and there's a little "you can't do this" symbol.

Final Cut Pro X :: Can't Get HDMI Video Output Through 10.1.3

Aug 27, 2014

I can not get HDMI video output through FCP-X 10.1.3.  I tested the card and I get video through it to my HDMI monitor using Blackmagic Media Express, so I know the card, monitor, and cable are in perfect working condition.  I have windows>AV output selected in FCP-X, but can not get a signal through. I think it is a bug, and a major one at that.  I really need this for color grading and to properly view my actual clips.

OS X :: Using Sound Output - Only Sound From The Internal Speaker

Apr 26, 2009

I woke up this morning and tried to watch a linked video on a webpage. I saw the video, but there was no sound (this had not been a problem the evening before). I am using USB soundsticks, so I checked to make sure that they were plugged in, and they were. I opened iTunes and sound came through the Soundsticks; I switched to the internal speaker and it worked there as well. When I tried the same with another embedded video, however, I only got sound from the internal speaker.

Has anyone had a similar problem or does anyone know how to fix this?

MacBook Pro :: No Sound From Audio Output

Apr 14, 2010

I've had a problem with my MacBook Pro (2008) for a while. If I connect a headset or external speakers, there will be no sound from the Macs audio output. The built in speakers is working perfectly. Do you have any idears what could be the reason? I tryed do reset the Pram but with no luck. If it helps there is no red light coming out of the macs output. The problem occurred when I connected a mini-jack for my speakers. Maybe the output thinks it's a S/PDIF and not a normal audio output?
