    When I watch a dvd or listen to music on my mini Im getting sound from the built in speakers on the mini. Even though Im happy it has built in speakers I want the sound to come from my tv instead.

    How is this possible. My mini is intel based, its connected via a dvi to hd lead and my tv is a samsung le32r88bd

    Would also like to hear sound from the tv channel i have active when using PIP.

    Your mini has a headphone jack on the back (Or it should.) Although there's definitely a better way to do this, off the top of my head: get Apple's DVI to video cable, and a mini stereo to RCA adapter (mini stereo being headphone jack plug).

    I like using the dvi to hd lead. I appreciate your input but I would agree with you that there is a better way to do it.

    Any other suggestions.
