    ive been researching this a lot and cant find a thing about it




    i just purchased a sony 5.1 audio reciever. i have my imac 20" hooked up via vga with 3.5mm sound to my tv directly.

    the question i have is should i go with a 3.5mm to yellow white cable to hook up to the reciever for the sound. or should i go hdmi and get another sound cable for it.

    It will be at the same time. If not, your receiver probably can compensate.
