Hi - I have a Panasonic Viera and Panasonic surround system. I used an HDMI cable to link them so that I can control the whole system (all components turn off and on, volume control is synched, etc) with the TV remote. I managed to connect my new macbook pro to the tv with a second HDMI cable. Screen looks pretty good. (In fact I'm using it now!) It seems to cause some issues, however with the link and the ability to use one remote. I can get sound from my computer through the surround system, but single remote control doesn't work any more. Any solutions (aside from using two remotes)?
