Hey People! First of all, I'm new to the forum. I've followed the daily rumors on the Front Page for a long time, but I've held off for unknown reasons on the forums. I have a Late 2009 iMac. My parents (I'm a College Student) have recently finished remodeling our basement, and it's now equipped with a great 7.1 surround system. It's all upper-end Klipsch speaker models, and sounds awesome. The A/V receiver is Onkyo TX-SR608. The receiver has about 6-7 (off the top of my head) HDMI ports, and two Optical ports. As the Optical Ports are in use with the Blu-Ray player and Satellite TV, those options are out. However, there is an empty HDMI Port labeled PC. Noticing this, it now has me wondering about the possibilities. Can I connect my iMac to this receiver for direct playback on Surround Mixing? My major is Music Composition, and I've yet to have the opportunity to create 7.1 mixes (or any surround mixes, yet). If it's even possible (feel free to enlighten me if it isn't possible)... What do I need to do this? I'm upgrading to Mac Pro as soon as the refreshed model is released. As the current models do not have HDMI ports, I realize that I'm no worse off on my iMac. So, base your recommendations around the 2009 iMac. Note: I do use Logic Studio and Pro Tools for my mixing, monitoring, mastering, etc. Thank you to all who are willing to help me!
