    I have a Bose companion 5 connected via the USB to my mac mini...great!
    Now my tv is connected via hdmi to mac mini, sky hd & ps3 also connected to TV.
    I can play the audio out of my tv connected via the audio line in on the Bose but you lose the Bose USB technology then...
    Is there a way to send the audio out of my tv, through the mac mini and then out to the Bose?

    If im watching a film or music etc on my mac mini its fine as I'm outputting the sound direct to the Bose via USB. It's just when on ps3 or watching sky etc on my tv it'd be great to have the USB side of it working.

    To hear any audio coming from the Line In of your Mac you then have to launch QuickTime Player, select New Audio Recording, choose your input if it is not already selected and turn the level up to hear it out of your Mac's audio out. Search for audio apps on the App Store to find simpler ways of doing this.
