I want to get sound from TV & Macbook in the same headset, so Im basically using the TV as a microphone, using a male to male stereo cable

Is there a way to playback microphone in real-time on a Mac?

Thanks

Let me see if I understand what you want to do. You would like to be able to feed the sound from your TV into the Mac and be able to hear the sound on the Mac while it is playing? The TV is in essence becoming a sound source? If so try this:

1. Connect the appropriate cable from your TV sound to the Line In port on your Mac.
2. Install the free program LineIn fro Rogue Amoeba | Freebies: Free Software for Mac OS X
3. Follow setup instructions

You're welcome. I think it took me longer to find the link and post it than it took you to set things up.
