HT2494 Can the headphone port be used as Mic-In? Can it be switched in settings of the Mac to Mic-in?

Can the headphone port be used as Mic-In? Can it be switched in settings of the Mac to Mic-in?
Same question for Macbook Pro (particularly 2010 13" edition).

what about the new iMac?
I use mic only when working in Sony Vegas and other Sony programs. I'd like to know if I can use proessional Mic with the new iMac and with the old Macbook Pro, probably by connecting it through audio-in port, maybe there is a way to transform it through the settings on the Mac into Mic-in?
If not, then my question is can I otherways use a professional Mic staying in Windows through Bootcamp on a Mac? And the most important - the new iMac, cause that happens to be the only question that stands before me and buying the new iMac.
Maybe I'm a little bit lame in all this stuff, because I'm used to use Windows-based computers to work with audio, but I didnt really understand what all that preamp and Line ment. I know that Line is a super-quality of the sound, guess thats possible to produce only in studios, not even with an extra good Shure mic at home. Or maybe you've been meaning smth else. If you could explane me everything in more easy and detailed way - I would be grateful.

  • HT2494 the sound won't work on my Macbook pro  the headphone port actually has a red light coming from it

    Can not get sound on my Computer.  The headphone port actually has a red light coming from it.  Help

    Insert a headphone jack and remove it and see if the light goes out. The red light indicates the switch didn't switch from head phone to your Mac's speakers. Some folks have actually used a match stick to undo the switch.

  • Can the WAN port be used as LAN when AirPort Express (2nd Generation) is setup to join a wireless network?

    Can the WAN port be used as LAN when AirPort Express (2nd Generation) is setup to join a wireless network? (IE: 2 LAN ports)
    I haven't been able to get a clear answer on this. I believe the 1st generation would act as WAN/LAN depending on setting, but what happens with the 2nd generation?
    Thank you for your time.

    If the Express joins a wireless network wirelessly, in other words its WAN port isn't connected to anything, the correct way to connect a wired client to it is by using its LAN port.
    I don't know what would happen if you were to connect a wired client to its WAN port instead — it's just not supposed to be used for that purpose. It won't permanently break anything if you were to try it though. If you were, the worst that would occur is that your network would become unresponsive as packets continuously traverse its WAN port in a circular fashion, which might require that you power down your router to reset your whole network.
    If you are already using your Express's LAN port and you need another, the way to provide more ports is to purchase an inexpensive ($10 or so) switch. Connect it to the LAN port and as many other pieces of equipment as the switch's available number of ports.
    You're correct about the first generation with the single Ethernet port. It could be used in either capacity depending on its configuration.

  • My iPod shuts off repeatedly when using the Nike running app. Have already tried the headphones solution that Apple has recommended. Can anyone help?

    My iPod shuts off repeatedly when using the Nike running app. Have already tried the headphones solution that Apple has recommended. Can anyone help?

    Using the 5th generation iPod. Purchased it a few months ago before the new one was launched. Yes the workout randomly ends when I am no where near the time or distance I have programmed in. I keep tried to restart the workout and the same thing keeps happening over and over again. I figured it may have been the headphones but I have even tried holding the headphone connection in place, and different headphones as well and it continues to happen.

    all i have is the internal mic option, can anyone help?
    thanks

    You should also ask this in the MacBook Pro forum. This is the forum for the white and black plastic MacBooks that were discontinued in 2010. You should also post this question there to increase your chances of getting an answer.

  • Is there a way to connect an external speaker (for another room) through the headphone port

    Is there a way to connect an external speaker (for another room) through the headphone port  & still hear sound through the internal speakers?  System Preferences/Sound/Output or Sound Effects allows you to use one or the other  --  headphones or internal speakers.  I would like to have the option of hearing music through the internal speakers in one room, & through an external speaker in another room at the same time.  I also do not want to frequently disconnect/reconnect the external speaker from/to the headphone port as I know over time the connection could become loose.  (10.7.4  Lion)

    dont think so but I could be wrong
    as it were I didn't like the build in audio so I connected some external logictech 2.1 speakers  but there
    are times when I use headset so I bought this one
    or any minijack splitter will work too so I have 2 things connected to the headset port works just fine

  • I've got a 7 year old 30gb video ipod and the headphone port no longer works! Please help :)

    I went to the Apple shop and they said it is now vintage and they can't fix my baby they offered me 10% to trade her in for a new model...
    what else can I try to save her?  I've tried cleaning and wiggling and restoring. Everything looks and feels ok.

  • I cannot hear any songs or movies from my laptop speakers - the headphone port works and a red light is showing? The output sound settings are showing as digital optical only? Any ideas :)

    I cannot hear any songs or movies from my laptop speakers - the headphone port works and a red light is showing from the port? The output sound settings are showing as digital optical only? I used the headphones in the laptop for the first time yesterday and have had this problem ever since. Any ideas

    The internal switch in the audio output port is stuck.  Try inserting the earphone plug a few times.  If no success, try jiggling a tooth pick inside in order to trip the switch.. If still no success, have the technicians at the Apple store genius bar do it for you.
    Ciao.

  • Red light coming from the headphone port

    does anybody know why there is a red light coming from the headphone port.
    This is after i reformatted 
    Thanks
    Moderator note; subject edited for relevancy

    This is perfectly normal. You can run an optical digital out this way. You need a mini-toslink adapter like this:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mini-TOSLINK
    Then you can set the digital out as default (instead of Speakers) to run audio to a surround sound reciever via optical fiber.
