Mac mini dp to hdmi audio

Red light came on when imac was plugged in. But no signal was passing through. Stunning picture from the Imac. I have a My daughter put my evening eye glasses inside the notebook and closed it, cracking the retina display, which pretty quickly spread to almost the entire screen. I do have apple tv and had been connecting that way but now it is difficult to even find the display settings to setup mirroring. I figured the easiest and quickest thing would be to just hook up directly through an hdmi cable since I have a small flatscreen I can use as a temporary monitor on my desk that has an hdmi port and my Powerbook has an hdmi port also.

I expected to just plug each end in, switch to the hdmi input on the tv and have my desktop on the tv. I mean, it is a pretty basic and uncomplicated setup. However, I have no picture. And the Mac is not recognizing the tv at all as a device it is attached to. If I go to displays, only the internal retina display is listed.

Technical Specifications

In sounds, only the internal speakers. Nothing else under output. It does not make sense to me as it is directly connected securely on both ends through a brand new HDMI cable. I have triple checked that each end is securely inserted in the ports. The small tv only has one hdmi input channel. And your instructions confirm that I have correctly set it up and should see my desktop.

Does anyone have any ideas here? I need to get my Powerbook fixed but while I am waiting on that, it would make life so much easier if I could use it at least part of the time with this smaller tv as a monitor rather than mirroring to the bigger tv with apple tv…. I restarted also with the tv on, correct hdmi input selected and cables hooked up…. Does anyone have any ideas for a solution? I tried one suggestion that I read from the feed by going into preferences and switching output to hdmi but this did not resolve my issue. I have a presentation for tomorrow and this has become really stressful.

Can you please assist to resolve my issue? Great tutorial! Any suggestions? I did this for my home theater system and connected it to my 60 inch tv. You can go directly to a monitor and use the built-in monitor speakers or and audio source with more superb sound. Gefen among other companies makes a video and sound combo box with hdmi out and inputs to accept your video and audio specific cables to combine them into one HDMI cable to connect to your tv.

Works great. Choose sound card for audio output in system preferences, which will be by FireWire or thunderbolt depending on which you used. Note: these days, current external sound cards connect using Thinderbolt, which is faster than FireWire.


Latency sound delay is not an issue. Connect HDMI output to HDMI input on video source if another is available on source or run composite or component or optical sound cable to video source TV monitor , from external sound card outputs of choice. Look at Focusrite for the most quality and economic. Guitar Center carries them. I tried to connect my macbook pro retina display with my 4k TV but I can only hear the sound on the TV and only the home screen of the macbook can be seen on the TV. I did it successfully before the upgrade.

Hackintosh Audio DisplayPort (DP) & HDMI Graphics Fix - 2018

I can still switch my port to Apple TV with no issues with video or audio but when I return to mac mini, my screen is still black. I have a problem with Audio; display works just find and has no issue at all but I have checked all possible options but audio still does not work. I primarily want it to push secondary screens containing documents or watching a youtube etc. My issue is the fonts on the iMac have all changed, everything is now much smaller.

The safari browser fonts, email, ichat, calendar……everything now has much smaller font. Moving a safari browser over to the bigger tv works fine, but the iMac is my primary display in this case and I need to be able to read without a new prescription :. I have had my Mac Air hooked and working and suddenly now it wont work when I attach it to my tv. I have the correct input and the cables are fine…could this be an OS X update issue? I have not updated Yosemite…. Thank you!!

You saved me hours!!

Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter - Shop 4K HDMI Adapters | Moshi

So glad I found this. I also need both the other usb slots for my mbox and ilok. I am having almost the exact same problem as Jason. My computer flashes as well as though it recognizes that something is happening. I do see pages as Option A and Option B above, and I see an option of optimizing the display for a Samsung on my computer, so there is something going on, but no video. I have a MacBook inch, Mid 2. I guess it could be a substandard adapter cable but it could be something else too. Good stuff. This helped ease the pain.

However, it works great now and the picture is very acceptable. Not sure where I am going wrong frustating. But now when I try and connect, the connection of my desktop on the TV screen only lasts for a few seconds, and it goes blank. It will flick back on for a second, and then go black again for a few minutes. I had the same problem with my Macbook pro and TV.

I was worried it was the TV or the Mac, which are both much harder to fix, but it turned out it was the much cheaper Mini Display Port Adapters so just get a new one. Opened my system preferences and then sound, but there is not an HDMI option listed. Internal speakers listed only.

Any ideas? I have the same problem.

I think external speakers are the answer unless some clever person out there has a solution. I have the same problem as well. Someone please help, I can see the video but have no audio.

This did the job perfectly with no drivers to install - just plug it in and away you go.

I needed this item to connect my laptop to an external monitor. The existing HDMI was already being used for a second monitor and this was a quick and easy way to connect to both monitors. It arrived promptly and works well. What more can I say. One person found this helpful. I've read some reviews complaining that the cable is stiff and short.

So is the Apple cable so this product is very similar to the original one. Moreover this is an adaptor, not an extension cable so I don't know why people complain What's to say - I can now watch movies from CD players, video output devices etc. The cable is short but ideally the HDMI cable should be the longer cable. Works okay and small enough to keep in my computer case so it can be taken with me in case needed! Took it out the packet and all was fine, used it for about 6 hours plugging it in to my mac only once.

Came back the next day, plugged it in and the screen was black. Mac recognises cable but nothing on the display. Can only assume poor build quality and some broken wires somewhere. Tried with different mac, screen and cable combinations, nothing! Have contacted seller for replacement.

Would happily change this review if another one starts working perfectly. But would honestly pay up a bit for something of a higher quality. No problem with durability so far, but I do disconnect it in between uses. Only minor flaw is that the connection end is blank, so I had to put a small mark to ensure I was connecting it the right way up. I've two more on the way for my own and a friends MacBook Pro, as this one is permanently connected to the iMac for video editing.

I've had this almost a year now and have used it connecting my laptop to the living room tv to watch movies a couple of times a week. I honestly had no idea which adapter to buy as all of these Amazon adapters function the same but settled on this one and am pleased as it's held up better than expected for the price. I'm a self employed trainer and needed this to connect my macbook air to the projectors in training rooms. I'd seen a Belkin version at the apple store for a lot more money, but it didn't get better reviews than this cheaper version, so bought this one instead.

It works great. Just remember - it you'll also need an HDMI cable to connect this to the tv. Great purchase. See all reviews. Pages with related products.
