View Full Version : HDMI - Sound through Mac not TV

Oct 4, 2011, 04:56 AM

Watched a movie last night on my Sony TV the picture was excellent. :-)

BUT .. the HDMI sound was output through my Apple Macbook Air .. it was good but not as good as the tv.

Is there a setting somewhere which should allow you to ensure sound comes through the TV speakers?

I know how to do in Windows but new to OSX :confused:

Rebooted and put the HDMI in and then tried again and it worked this time.

No idea why it didn't work before.

I couldn't alter any of the System sound settings but didn't need to in the end.

Maybe my MBA just needed a reboot :)
