MacBook Pro :: No Audio Connecting To HDTV

May 30, 2010

I had my MBP and TV connected via two cords from Monoprice (Mini DisplayPort Male to HDMI Male 32AWG Cable "5995" which handles video and 3.5mm Stereo Plug/2 RCA Plug Cable "665" which does audio). I'm connecting to a mid 2009 model MBP. I'm aware of the Mini Displayport Male and USB Male Audio to HDMI Female Converting Adapter "5969" however that still required me to purchase a separate HDMI cable to connect to that cord itself plus was four times the total price vs. using 5995 + 665 (plus the Monoprice rep said my method would work just as well).

Hardware :: Connecting IMac To HD TV - Audio / Video Playback?

Jun 5, 2009

I have a 2G iMac and I have it connected to a Philips HD TV with a mini-dvi to dvi adapter that is connected to a HDMI-to-DVI video cable. I also have a Y audio cable connected iMac to the AV1 on the TV. The problem is I can only select one source on my TV, either AV1 or HDMI 1. If I select AV1 I can hear the audio from the video streaming on my computer (no video shows on the TV), but if I select HDMI 1 I can only see my desktop background no audio or video. How can I get both the video and audio to play at the same time? Why am I only seeing my background and not video?

Hardware :: Connecting IMac To HDTV?

Nov 11, 2009

I'm wanting to hook up my 24" iMac (early 2009) to my 40" HDTV Sony Bravia [URL] so that i can use Plex or even front row to play my media through my TV and take advantage of the surround sound setup i have in my room. My questions are.

1. what cables/software do i need to achieve this?
2. is there any way that i can use my TV as a secondary monitor in a way that means i can run media off my iMac, through my TV set, whilst still being able to use my iMac for general tasks such as web browsing. or can i only have the TV mimmick exactly what is on my iMac screen?

Hardware :: Connecting IMac Wirelessly To Play Music?

May 6, 2010

I have recently bought an iMac (Intel Core 2 Duo) and would like to connect it to my stereo (Sony digital audio/video control centre STR-K785 which is set up around my TV) in the same room.

I am wondering whether I should just use cables (would be awkward and messy) or whether I can use any of these devices which I have and whether they would be any good?

Time Capsule (with an Airport Express?) PS3

Beyonwiz (high def PVR which seems to have networking capabilities)

Hardware :: Connecting IMac With Two Machines To Internet Wirelessly

Apr 7, 2008

I'm purchasing a new iMac intel core2 duo and want to connect it and my G4 500MHz Power Mac tower and 550Mhz PowerBook wirelessly to the internet. I have Cable modem at the front of my house and will put the iMac in a different room about 10m away. I have my G4 tower separate from the house about 40m away and my PowerBook won't be more than 10m from the modem. I am purchasing a 500GB Time Capsule to act as a wireless router and as an external hard drive for the iMac. How do I, or can I, connect the other two macs to the internet wirelessly?

The advice 1: iMac is fine.
G4 Tower_install an airport express card (802.11n) and insert where the old card should go. It should connect to internet wirelessly.
PowerBook_same thing(?)
The advice 2:
G4 Tower_install a Shintaro USB2.0 5-Port PCI Card and Addlogix USB 2.0 54MBps Wireless Adaptor
PowerBook_can't do anything for it.

OS X :: Connecting My Audio And Video To My Home Theater?

Feb 20, 2009

This whole thing started with my friend offering to buy my imac... i currently have an iMac (witch has all my music, videos, photos and a few programs i would intend on keeping) and a recently purchased macbook uni... The goal is to keep all my music and photos etc. but i don't want to have any of them on my MB (except the programs).

I started (and almost bought) with a time capsule. I liked the wireless transfer and thought it would be cool to have my music accessed from my MB, that i would have connected to my receiver. This is where reading other threads and reviews got my wheels turning and in turn looking down the avenue of a mac mini instead or possibly a apple tv with a external hd...

The ultimate goal is to have my audio and video easily connected to my home theater. I'm not completely against hooking my MB to my receiver I just dont want to have it stored on my MB... What had started as search for a means of storage evolved into a search for an Apple (or at least apple friendly) media server. So who has the best solution?

PowerPC :: Converting Video From IMac And IBook To HDTV?

Aug 2, 2008

I'm new here and I've done a little searching and can't find an exact answer to my situation:I want to convert my video from my iMac and my iBook to my 37" LCD HDTV (Vizio) which has a VGA input already on it.Now, I have a Mini-DVI to VGA adapter already for my iBook, however, the adapter will not work on the Mini-DVI port on my iMac.

My question is: Does anyone know where I can get a cheap alternative to convert Mini-DVI (for my Intel iMac) to VGA with at least 50-75 feet of cable?

Hardware :: Connecting G5 To HDTV

Aug 14, 2009

I have a G5 that I wish to connect to a 20" HDTV. In edition I have a regular flat screen monitor that I would like to use as a slave for pallettes etc. My question is, what kind of adapter do I need? On the back of my G5 there are two monitor inputs, one slightly longer than the other. I got a DVI male to HDMI Cable that allows me to connect the HDTV to the less wide of the two inputs but it does not yield an HD Picture. I think what I need is an adapter or cable that would go in the winder of the two slots and then to my HDTV but I dont know what it would be called or what to even look for. Are there two types of DVI male to HDMI Cables, one wider than the other?

Laptops :: Using Connecting IBook G4 Wirelessly To DSL Modem?

Mar 23, 2010

I recently changed providers and started DSL. I have a modem with built-in wireless capabilities. Set it up for my desktop (wired) and all worked well. My son has an iBook G4 running 10.4.11 - same as my desktop. It has an Airport card in it so we figured he should be able to connect to the modem wirelessly. Set it up and it worked well for one day. Following day it would not connect.

I set up the wireless connection with WPA-PSK selected and channel 9 selected. Made sure the iBook was set the same. When prompted for the password we get an error message stating there is an "error" connecting to the modem. Using the set up assistant for the Airport card yielded no change.

Today we turned off the WPA-PSK and he can connect with no problem. I'm not entirely comfortable with WPA shut off. I read something that implied the password needs to be a certain length to work for some settings - notably WEP. I used an 8 character password for the PSK.

I have a macbook pro 13" and have just bought a hdtv. (From Tesco but it was fairly cheap - either way its still a hdtv). I have got the mini DVI to DVI and a DVI to HDMI. (So I have an adapter, then a cable). When I go on the HD channel I get a blue screen saying 'no signal.' My macbook picks up the TV in the system preferences > displays.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting MBP To HDTV Adapter - No Sound?

Mar 4, 2010

pretty new to the Mac side of things. I got my MBP about 3 weeks ago I think. I got a mini display to hdmi adapter (off ebay, so this may be the problem). I hooked it up to my laptop and tv and it took me a while to find the mirroring box but I got that working so what's on my computer pops up on the tv. I go to play a tv show, and the sound is just on my computer. I went under system pref and sound but only "internal speakers" is available for the output. Am I doing something wrong? Or do I just have a cheap adapter?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To HDTV - Apple Adapter?

Jul 29, 2010

I just ordered a new Macbook pro. I'm going to have a HDTV in my room at school and I want to be able to connect my laptop to it. So I could buy apple's mini displayport to hdmi adapter and then buy a hdmi cable, but that would probably end up costing me like $60. I'm wondering if anyone knows if something like this would work? It seems like it would work but its from hong kong so I donno lol. Anyway, anyone know any cheaper alternative to the over priced apple adapter? Also, I understand that the new macbooks have audio output through the minidisplay port so the adapter has to support audio too.

MacBook Pro :: Default Display Changes When Connecting To HDTV

Mar 17, 2012

My macbook pro has been connecting to my TV appropriately for months. The display is suddenly changing to a different default when I connect now. It was fine two weeks ago and has done 3 software updates in between. I have not loaded other new software. When the thunderbolt connection is made, both screens turn blue, then both display a screen resolution formatting that doesn't fit the screens.

Info:MacBook Pro (13-inch Early 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
