    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:

    .. fixed ..

    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 :)
