How do I get sound out of the HDMI?

Hi!
The headline says pretty much what I want to ask.
I tried to connect my Samsung LED TV to my MacBook Pro using an HDMI cable and an adaptor from HDMI to Thunderbolt (the little lightening-port). I bought an adaptor that supports sound transfer so that should not be the problem. I chose audio-in from the proper HDMI channel on my TV but the sound is still coming out from the laptop and the TV says nada...
Anyone have an idea what I might missing?

tjk: I think the quoted message simply indicates that there is no output volume control provided within the computer when the HDMI connection is the selected output device. This standard message appears because the audio signal sent via the HDMI cable is digital, not analog. When the audio output is digital, whether it's via mini-Displayport or a mini-TOSLink connection to the headphone port, the volume is always controlled externally — by the TV set, amplifier, receiver, or powered speaker system to which the signal is sent, not by the computer. A digital audio signal contains no volume information. The device that converts it to an analog signal and relays it to the loudspeaker(s) must provide the volume information.
Thanks eww, I was not aware of that. Makes perfect sense.
Poor, I'm not sure where that leaves us, but if the TV is on and the volume turned on/not muted, and still no audio coming through, I'd try a PRAM Reset and an SMC Reset:

  • I can not get sound out of the HDMI output on my mac mini. happened before after unpluging headphone and had to change some hrz number.

    I have had this problem before. I just cant remember how I fixed it. I am not getting any sound from the HDMI output. Everything is selected properly and volumes are set correctly. Last time I had to change a megahrz thing and thats where I am stumped.

  • How do I get sound out when I plug in a USB mic?

    How do I get sound out when I plug in a USB mic?  I cannot hear my instrument tracks either.  It will record my vocals, but I can't hear them.  If I unplug the mic and restore the internal devices, then I can hear all tracks, including the vocals.  I'm sure there's a simple solution.

    Hi
    Prior to Logic 9, you cannot separately choose Input/Output audio devices, so you either have the USB Mic, or the Built-in audio (or an external audio interface).
    To set up for 'mixed' devices, you need to use AudiMIDI Setup (Utilities folder) to create an Aggregate Device.

    Note that I recall that it was 'sensitive' to which order you create the devices with some USB Mics.

  • HT4191 I have Notes that transferred to email when I set up a new email acct. They no longer appear in Notes. I can only access them in the email acct. How do I get them out of the email acct and back to the Notes app?

    I have Notes that transferred to an Email acct when I set up the acct. The Notes no longer appear in the Notes app only in the Email acct. How do I get them out of the Email acct and back to Notes? I stopped at an Apple store and they told me to copy them from the email back to Notes. But when I was in the email acct, I could not find a way to copy them. Shouldn't Notes remain in Notes unless I specifically send them somewhere else?

    Go into Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars, select that email account on the right-hand side of the screen and turn Notes 'on' for it - they should then appear in the Notes app instead of as an email folder in the Mail app (they will still be linked to that email account, so you may need to tap the 'Accounts' button at at the top left of the list of notes)

    A quick Google search for Error 2001 would indicate that this occurs when you have a jailbroken phone or were trying to downgrade iOS. Is that true for you?

    Thanks Diggie, your response was very close.  I clicked on the email several times.  It came up and gave me the option to Send.  I clicked Send and my recipients received the email.
    I did not have to delete and reinstall my email account.

  • How do I get something out of the earbud jack?

    I have a Nano 3rd Generation, and got a small ball stuck in the earbud jack. Does anyone have an idea of how I can get it out?  It's exactly the size of the cylinder that the jack plugs into. I can't shake it out. I've tried heating a needle and deflating the ball -- that didn't work. The jack is too narrow for any tweezers or pliers. I'm out of ideas.

    What if you try to pull it out with a toothpick or paperclip? If nothing else, bring it down to your local Apple Store/Genuis Bar or Apple Authorized Reseller and they should be able to help.

  • How do I get sound out of all 5.1 speake

    Thanks for the answer to my last post. Sound very slightly comes out of the rear and center speaker. Maybe my question should've been, how do I raise the volume of the rear speakers? IS it at the CMSS screen? Thanks again.

    You should certainly get the sound coming from your TV if you are streaming there from your Mac. Can we assume you are streaming via iTunes?

  • I have a device that shows up in my airplay device list on my iMac, and my phone.  This device does not exist.  How do I get it out of the list? I would like to drop it before I add new airplay devices to my network.

    I have a device that shows up in my airplay device list in iTunes, and on my iPhone that does not exist.  How do I delete it? I have OS X 10.10.1 on my iMac, and iOS 8.1.2 on my iPhone 5.  I would like to get it out before I add new airplay devices to my network.

    I called Apple tech support.  The device turns out to be a WiFi extender.  I never would have guessed that the extender would show up on the list since I wouldn't think of it as an airplay device, and in the list, it shows a little speaker icon.  In the process of talking with Apple, I gained a greater understanding of how airplay works. 
    It turns out that there is no stored list of devices in a file on the mac, or anywhere else.  I have seen a lot of traffic on the web from people trying to modify this list, but there isn't one.  iTunes, and other devices simply poll the network for airplay devices from time to time.
    Have a very happy holiday!
    I would like to get rid of "just give me the aster, and stop wasting my time", and replace it with my name.  The Apple tech support guy never saw that before.  Just my luck.

  • I have a projector connected to a directtv box that is connected to an older Bose system in my media room. How can i hook up my apple tv to my projector and still get sound out of the bose system without running another sound cable to the bose system?

    The audio cable currently is connected to the directtv box. If i hook my apple tv to the projector that means i would have to run a sound cable across my media room. is there any other way?

    External speakers need to be connected via optical unless they work with airplay.

  • Can't get sound out of the computer

    Song file should play thru the computer speakers, but it doesn't. I'm getting MIDI input into Logic, but something is missing farther downstream. It has worked in the past, but that was a year ago and I've forgotten how to do it. I can't use it at all until this problem is fixed. Too bad Logic is so complicated!

    Fr.BlayZay, I'm not sure what screen you're referring to. The Preferences>Audio>Drivers>Core Audio screen is accessible either through LogicPro>Preferences>Audio... or through Audio>Audio Hardware and Drivers... In either case, here's what my screen shows: Enabled (checked), System Memory Requirement 66 MB, Driver TASCAM US-122 selected (not Built-In Input or Built-In Microphone), I/O Buffer Size 512, Recording Delay 0, Max Number of Audio Tracks 32, 64Busses (not checked), Universal Track Mode (checked), Larger Disk Buffer (checked), 24 Bit Recording (not checked), Software Monitoring (checked), Process Buffer Range Medium, Rewire behavior Playback Mode, Maximum Scrub Speed Normal, Scrub Response Normal. There's nothing about Default Output on the screen. Maybe you can give me a clue about how to access the screen I need. Thanks! (and unfortunately this part of Logic is NOT fun!)
