    But when I play music through iTunes, after a certain amount of "inactive" time (in which I'm not on the computer doing things) the monitor will go into a "no signal" sleep mode. The problem with this is it cuts the music off. If I go to the keyboard & tap a key, it comes back and the music continues.

    I can NOT find a way to shut off this sleep mode in either system preferences OR in the monitor settings. It doesn't do it during video streaming, only with music.

    fix? Please?!? :-z
    What happens is run Visualizer in iTunes while you listen to the music?

    macbook 4,1 2006 connect to av receiver
    I have a mac book 4,1 2006. I would like it to connect to my yamaha rx v367 a/v receiver preferably thru hdmi in video and audio. My TV is connected to the receiver via 1 hdmi cable. My DVD and cable goes thru the receiver and i would like to do the same with my computer. I was reading the previous post and at one time you recommended to use a adapter sold at mono price product ID 5969. Can i use that or i have no choice but to use 2 separate cables for audio and video.

    thanks

    MacBook hookup to old Sony TV pains
    Hi. I'm new to the forum and hope someone can help. I'm trying to watch streaming Netflix from Macbook 6,1 to Sharp TV model 27F543. The Sharp has no VGA, just this: http://www.racketboy.com/videocables/composite-jack.jpg

    My research suggested I should pick one of these up: Amazon.com: AGPtekŪ Computor Laptop PC MAC Monitor VGA to TV AV Composite RCA S-Video Converter Box Convertors Adaptors (Dark Blue): Electronics

    I use the video port on the adaptor to the video port on my TV, and then audio from my MacBook headphone port to the audio ports on the TV.

    The audio is fine, but I can't get the video to work. The adaptor has a couple of switches on it that, when set correctly, show a test pattern...when it shows anything at all. I think the video port on the adaptor may be screwed up; I've used different video cords and gotten the same result: I have to jiggle the cord to see the test pattern, and the connection seems to be tenuous.

    I could send the adaptor back to have it replaced, but I don't want to stare at the test pattern. I'd like to know whether I have a damaged version of the correct solution or whether I need to get something else. Or is this a software issue; maybe I need to mess around with my display settings?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Some mini display port to HDMI adaptors simply do not work. I bought 2 that were defective. Finally I bought one recommended by the forum the Monoprice and it worked.

    Take that back where you bought it. There is no such thing as a DVI to component "adapter" that works with anything except a few old ATI video cards that put out the component signal via their DVI port - mainly relegated to their "All-in-Wonder" cards from about 10-12 years ago.

    As far as I am aware there does not exist a single video card with drivers for OS X, Windows or other that puts out a component signal via it's displayport.

    Displayport - digital; component - analog.

    Head to monoprice.com and grab their mini-displayport to HDMI and connect to your TV via HDMI.

    Specs:
    macbook6,1 2.26 GHz
    this seems like the thread to get an answer

    i have a MacBook6,1 2.26 GHz and an emerson LTDN42V68US tv and im having trouble with the no sound aspect in the tv. I went with the Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter which I understand doesn't support sound. I tried a headphone jack into RCA audio cable but im not sure if i just have it set up wrong or if theres a better way to do it. if you could help in any way I would really appreciate it. i ultimately want to play the sound through the tv obviously haha.

    Sorry, but I have never even given a 2nd glance at Apex TVs. Since they have elected not to place a copy of their owner's manuals online - you're going to need to do the work of opening your owner's manual for the TV and do some reading at the connections section.

    Just because the composite audio port happens to sit next to the HDMI port, that does not provide a conclusion that your TV is capable of using an analog audio connection simultaneous with it's HDMI input. On all of the brands of TVs that I have dealt with, the analog audio connection that does work with an HDMI input has "always" been on the back of the set. Not to say there's not one out there, but I have not seen a single brand put an analog connection on the side connections that works with it's HDMI input.

    So, it's time to start reading - go back to post # 3 and read it again so you know what you're looking for in the manual - or call Apex support at (877) 833-1888, from 7am to 9pm (CST) daily. And good luck with that one would be my guess.

    spoolin518:

    Once again - Emerson, and the company that makes this TV - Hisense - same model number for theirs - have both deemed that it is not worthwhile to put the owner's manual online. So, as in the post above, you're going to have to find your owner's manual, open it up, look for the section I've outlined in post # 3 and see if it permits a separate audio input in conjunction with it's HDMI ports. On a $400 42" screen - I sort of doubt it.

    kutekat and spoolin:

    If your TV will not accept separate audio, then you'll need a separate converter box like this. That box will combine the DVI and audio input into the single HDMI out.
