Step 2: A blue check mark means the option is turned on. Step 3: Verify that the volume icon is now present in your Menu Bar — you can click it to reveal a volume slider, or hold the Option key and click it to reveal a list of input and output devices. When using an HDMI connection, you will have to choose which audio out you want to use, and in my case, it just happened to be the sound-rich speakers that I wanted to use instead of the muffled built-in TV audio. Try this Anthony Bouchard on January 26, The sound was loud coming from the TV, so I decided to try and adjust it with the volume keys on my keyboard only to find the following prompt come up when attempting to press the volume up and volume down keys: This is done with the following steps: I found your instructions great, but I had a problem the screen on the tv has a pink tinge to it.
Opened my system preferences and then sound, but there is not an HDMI option listed. Internal speakers listed only. Any ideas? I have the same problem. I think external speakers are the answer unless some clever person out there has a solution.
Connecting a Mac computer to a projector or TV or monitor using HDMI
I have the same problem as well. Someone please help, I can see the video but have no audio. But now when I try and connect, the connection of my desktop on the TV screen only lasts for a few seconds, and it goes blank. It will flick back on for a second, and then go black again for a few minutes. I had the same problem with my Macbook pro and TV.
I was worried it was the TV or the Mac, which are both much harder to fix, but it turned out it was the much cheaper Mini Display Port Adapters so just get a new one. Not sure where I am going wrong frustating.
Good stuff. This helped ease the pain. However, it works great now and the picture is very acceptable. I have a MacBook inch, Mid 2. I guess it could be a substandard adapter cable but it could be something else too. I am having almost the exact same problem as Jason. My computer flashes as well as though it recognizes that something is happening. I do see pages as Option A and Option B above, and I see an option of optimizing the display for a Samsung on my computer, so there is something going on, but no video.
I also need both the other usb slots for my mbox and ilok. Thank you!! You saved me hours!!
So glad I found this. I have had my Mac Air hooked and working and suddenly now it wont work when I attach it to my tv. I have the correct input and the cables are fine…could this be an OS X update issue? I have not updated Yosemite…. I primarily want it to push secondary screens containing documents or watching a youtube etc.
My issue is the fonts on the iMac have all changed, everything is now much smaller.

- Connect the Mac to the TV with HDMI & Adapter.
The safari browser fonts, email, ichat, calendar……everything now has much smaller font. Moving a safari browser over to the bigger tv works fine, but the iMac is my primary display in this case and I need to be able to read without a new prescription: I have a problem with Audio; display works just find and has no issue at all but I have checked all possible options but audio still does not work. Nothing works to get video back. However, after about 5 minutes the video signal returns inexplicably.
I can still switch my port to Apple TV with no issues with video or audio but when I return to mac mini, my screen is still black. Also I have a magic black mini recorder Capture Card. And I want to live broadcast Wirecast ,however no sound is being picked up, when I connect the canon to the MacBook. Can you help? I did it successfully before the upgrade.
What do I need to do? I tried to connect my macbook pro retina display with my 4k TV but I can only hear the sound on the TV and only the home screen of the macbook can be seen on the TV. Connect HDMI output to HDMI input on video source if another is available on source or run composite or component or optical sound cable to video source TV monitor , from external sound card outputs of choice.

Guitar Center carries them. Latency sound delay is not an issue. Gefen among other companies makes a video and sound combo box with hdmi out and inputs to accept your video and audio specific cables to combine them into one HDMI cable to connect to your tv. Works great.
No sound through HDMI
Choose sound card for audio output in system preferences, which will be by FireWire or thunderbolt depending on which you used. I did this for my home theater system and connected it to my 60 inch tv. You can go directly to a monitor and use the built-in monitor speakers or and audio source with more superb sound.
Great tutorial! I tried one suggestion that I read from the feed by going into preferences and switching output to hdmi but this did not resolve my issue. I have a presentation for tomorrow and this has become really stressful. Can you please assist to resolve my issue? Does anyone have any ideas for a solution?
I have a My daughter put my evening eye glasses inside the notebook and closed it, cracking the retina display, which pretty quickly spread to almost the entire screen. I do have apple tv and had been connecting that way but now it is difficult to even find the display settings to setup mirroring. I figured the easiest and quickest thing would be to just hook up directly through an hdmi cable since I have a small flatscreen I can use as a temporary monitor on my desk that has an hdmi port and my Powerbook has an hdmi port also.
I expected to just plug each end in, switch to the hdmi input on the tv and have my desktop on the tv. I mean, it is a pretty basic and uncomplicated setup. However, I have no picture.
No sound through hdmi - macbook pro - Apple Community
And the Mac is not recognizing the tv at all as a device it is attached to. If I go to displays, only the internal retina display is listed. In sounds, only the internal speakers. Nothing else under output. It does not make sense to me as it is directly connected securely on both ends through a brand new HDMI cable.
I have triple checked that each end is securely inserted in the ports. The small tv only has one hdmi input channel. And your instructions confirm that I have correctly set it up and should see my desktop. Does anyone have any ideas here? I need to get my Powerbook fixed but while I am waiting on that, it would make life so much easier if I could use it at least part of the time with this smaller tv as a monitor rather than mirroring to the bigger tv with apple tv…. I restarted also with the tv on, correct hdmi input selected and cables hooked up….
Can you answer this simply: But how do you turn of the imacs Display while doing this having two displays is distracting. How can one do this easily on an Imac. There is another issue as well I bought a 3 way switcher of ebay it worked very well. Then something happen to it and had to be replaced.
