With newer MacBook Air, sending both video and audio to an LG TV works fine, but I want to send the audio to a sound bar attached to the TV.  Any way to do this?

I am trying to get audio to play through the soundbar attached to the TV for great sound.  Works fine with Apple TV, but on the MacBook Air, system preferences will only find the TV speakers.  If I change the settings on the TV to external speakers (the soundbar), then I get no sound at all.  The HDMI connection does what it is supposed to do, providing video and audio, but the audio can only go to the TV.  I don't know if you can go backward and send only video through HDMI and then connect to the soundbar through the mini jack ports on the computer and the soundbar.  Any solutions will be appreciated.

its important to do this in the correct order so the camera will be senced by the Mac and to prevent the Firewire connection from electrical damage:
power down your Mac
connect firewire from camera to Mac
power on camera and insert tape in camera and play back
power up Mac
start QuickTime
File > Preferences > record tab
video source - select the camera you have
sound source - select the camera you have
quality - select device native
the video should show in the QuicTime window
a  green line below video will show presence of sound-it will play through the speakers if they are selected in system prefernces
rewind tape and playback
click on red button to start recording

    I'm relatively new to Mac and want to try and get the most out of the new MacBook Air.
    My wife and I have been sharing the same Apple ID. We both have iPhones - she has a 5 and I've got a 4S.
    We only have one copy of iTunes and we have been sharing the account. (She doesn't really use the computer for anything beyond writing the odd weekend assignment.)
    Would I be better off setting her up with her own and making her as a separate user on the computer? Would this require much work?
    In recent times with updates, we have a few problems with the duplication of texts and that sort of thing. Both of our texts are stored on the computer and that sort of thing. Also, sometimes texts I send her are sent through to me  from her, if that makes any sense.
    Anyway, I don't really want to overly complicate matters when it comes to accounts etc, but I wanted to know if a fresh Apple ID would be the best thing or even a new user?
    Any tips etc would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks in advance

    I have this question too (0) Reply

    Your question is almost too much a personal one, begging the question "do we (husband and wife) feel comfy sharing one account on the Mac"   maybe thats why nobody answered you.
    It doesnt complicate anything, but it adds steps for switching accounts on the Mac/ purchases etc. of course
    since your question is mostly personal, ..I wont answer THAT part of it, but creating a new account is easy.....messing with switching back and forth is also a personal preference 'issue' as well.   I prefer to keep things simple, but...........you and yours,  I dont know.......

  • MY NEW MACBOOK AIR IS HEATING UP AND ITS BATTERY IS DRAINING OUT REALLY FAST

    MY NEW MACBOOK AIR IS HEATING UP AND ITS BATTERY IS DRAINING OUT REALLY FAST. WHAT TO DO? I BOUGHT IT JUST 5 DAYS AGO.

    If you are within the 14 day purchase period you can exchange your MBP for a replacement.  If not you can have it checked out at the Apple store genius bar.
    CPU intensive applications will place stress on the CPU/GPU which will create heat and speed up the fans.  That is normal.  If you will, download from the Internet iStat pro and install it.  When your MBP gets hot, post an image such as this from mine:
    Also open Activity Monitor and set  to show 'All Processes' and '%CPU' to display values from high to low.  Post that as well like this:
    From this information we may be able to tell if there are any issues or not.

    I bought my iPhone 4 in Hong Kong and I am in Vancouver right now. When I enter the sim card, it locked my iPhone. Is there any way to solve this? Thank you

    Inserting a SIM card does not lock a phone.
    If the device is carrier locked, the only way to unlock it is to contact the carrier to whom it is locked.

  • New MacBook Air - Camera "blinks" off and on occasionally

    I just bought a new MacBook Air 13 a few days ago; I downloaded Skype the day I bought it. So everything should be up-to-date.
    It doesn't matter how long I have been on Skype or anything thing like that, but every 30 seconds to a few minutes the camera and green indicator light blinks off and the back on, but only for a second. The person on the other end even notices it as my camera either turns off or the picture lags/freezes. Is this a known problem with Skype or is this an issue with my MacBook?  

    I don´t have or use a MacBook air, but I did notice the LED blinking usually when Skype switches the used video resolution. You may already know that Skype can adjust the video resolution according to different parameters like available bandwidth, cpu speed, and so on.  If you want to verify this, you could turn on "Show Technical Information" via the menu. Within the call, it shows the sending and receiving video resolution somewhere in the new technical information window. Just as the resolution switches, the LED flickers real quick. If this is the case, then that´s that. You cannot do anything about it. There is unfortunately no way to force a fixed setting regarding the used resolution.

  • Cannot associate Apple ID with new MacBook AIr

    I just purchased a new MacBook Air and have all of the latest updates done to it.  I try to associate my Apple ID to the computer and get an error message saying I have reached my limit of Authorized computers 5 out of 5.  I went into my account and clicked on Manage Devices, but I only see 1 MacBook listed as a device (a previous computer of mine), the others are iPads & iPhones, which totaled more than 5 to begin with.  I tried deleting/unauthorizing a few of these devices and tried registering my account again on the MacBook Air, but am still getting the error message.
    Is there any other place that I can unauthorized computers on my account? I am thinking I may have an old PC or Mac associated with my iTunes account (that I no longer have access to and has since been recycled).
    I only see that one Mac on my account under devices, so according to that, I should have the ability to add 4 other computers, unless I'm missing something.

    Hi jmcaninch,
    I apologize, I feel there may be a bit of confusion regarding authorizing a computer vs. associating a computer/device, which are two similar but seperate processes. All Associated computers/devices are also Authorized, but not necessarily vice versa. There are different limitations on each, and the Manage Devices screen will only show Associated computers/devices, not Authorized computers. For more information and clarification, you may find the following articles helpful:
    Authorize your computer in iTunes - Apple Support
    iTunes Store: Associating a device or computer to your Apple ID - Apple Support
    In particular for your specific issue, you may find this portion from the first article helpful:
    What happens if I run out of authorizations?
    If one of your 5 authorizations is on a computer you don't use much anymore, deauthorize it. If you've sold or given away a computer that used one of your 5 authorizations, you'll need to deauthorize all of your computers and then re-authorize each one you still use.
    How do I know how many computers I've authorized?
    If you've authorized more than 2 computers, you can see how many are authorized.
    Open your account in iTunesand sign in with your Apple ID. (Or, open iTunes, click Store > Sign In, and enter your Apple ID and password.) In the Apple ID Summary section, you’ll see the number of computers that you’ve authorized with your Apple ID. You can’t see the names of those computers. 
    Do I need to authorize my iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch?
    No. You don’t need to authorize your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, but you do need toassociate your iOS devices with your Apple ID. Your iOS devices don’t use your available authorizations.
    Regards,
    - Brenden

    Is this a known problem with Skype or is this an issue with my MacBook?  

    Some here on my Macbook Air 11inch.  It's really annoying since Skype is the only way to keep in contact with my entire family (we live literally across the globe from eachother).  It's frustrating when I have trouble showing them things or my nieces get upset from my picture flickering on their end every minute or so.  I really wish we could get a fix!

  • Wifi problems with new MacBook Air?

    I have just bought a new MacBook Air.
    For some reason the Air cannot find one of my WiFi networks called XF11. Its not a problem with the router being too far away because thats in my bedroom where I use the Air. The strange thing is my iPhone, my brothers iPad and my old MacBook find the network straightaway.
    On a few occasions over the last couple of days  when I have looked at the list of networks available it has briefly shown up but has then disappeared?
    Any help would be most appreciated, its very frustrating!
    Cheers!
    Apologies if this is the wrong category to post this

    It's new and in warranty. Please make a Genius Appointment and take it in for service.

    Welcome to Apple Support Communities
    When you try to turn off the MacBook Air, do you see any message telling you that an app couldn't be closed? As a test, close all applications and turn off your Mac.
    Also, reset the SMC > http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964

  • I just bought a new Macbook air 3 weeks ago and now there is out a newer model

    I just bought a new Macbook air 3 weeks ago here in Thailand and found out that since 3 days the new ones where lunched. is there a chance to get the new one for no charge? it happend to me with the iphone in the US before and apple changed it to the new model for no charge. But does this service work for Thailand too??

    After 3 weeks, probably not, but it's up to you to at least try.  If you purchased your computer through Apple's online store in Thailand, there's a phone number you can call.  If you purchased the product through a premium reseller (iStudio, for example), you should take it back to the store.  If you purchased it from a dodgy storefront in Pantip Plaza, or MBK, you can always ask...but, I'm guessing that they won't help.

  • Slooowww download speeds with new MacBook Air.

    I recently replaced my old MacBook from 2007 with a new MacBook Air. Since I've gotten it I've had a series of frustruations. I hadn't even thought to check if it had an ethernet port or a cd drive. Because it has nither I've had to download versions of things I'd generally install via CD. My download speeds seem to be incredibly slow on this new MacBook Air, it took hours to download firefox. I feel like my older MacBook was much faster, I don't understand. I recently did a speed test (I have Comcast) for the MacBook Air and it came up with a 1mbps download speed. Is this an issue with the computer or with my modem (docis 3.0, cable) or router (standard belkin) or with Comcast? I'm pretty frustrutaed.
    Other questions:
    I'd love to plug this directly into our cable modem, but I see that I need an adapter.
    I'd also love to connect this to my iMac via thunderbolt cable and use use target disc mode to install some stuff.
    I'd like to buy a plain thunderbolt cable to have for use with more modern computers, and adapters for use with this older/other stuff. Is there an adapter that lets me attach the thunderbolt cable to an ethernet wire so I can plug directly into the modem? Also, my imac has a firewire 800 port, not a thunderbolt port, so is there a thunderbolt to firewire 800 cable?
    What would be the cheapest way of getting these cables and adapters, (links would be very appreciated!)?
    Thanks!

    Yes. Take it back for a replacement. Take the computer with you so you can test the new one.

  • Does the new Macbook Air not have iLife and iWork Apps?

    My old Macbook Air came with iLife and iWorks installed. My new Macbook Air with osX does not. Am I missing something?

    It comes with GarageBand, iMovie and iPhoto.  If you want pages and numbers, must buy in the App store or theiWork DVD.
