    Alternatively how do I connect an audio input at a level that would normally have gone into a 'line input' socket ?

    Plug it into the linein/headphone jack if there's just one.  It'll switch between the two modes automatically depending on what you plug into it.

  • How do i connect three external monitors to a macbook pro?

    How do I connect three extrenal monitors to my Macbook Pro?

    I have a USB to DVI adapter from kensington. I use to use it to power at 14" display.Moving windows around had some tearing and lag. Typing lagged, but it was use-able. It was fine for displaying diffrent stats. The OS treated it as it would any additional display.
    But I found it undesirable for any thing tha requires lots dragging and clicking.
    Every so often the device would lock up. At witch point the computer would get stuck trying to detect the USB display. I would have to unplug the adapter, cycle the power on the adapter. And then it would be good for a couple more months.
    Also some times after a reboot, the adapter would stop working. I would have to unplug it, and login, and then plug it back in.
    Coping file to my USB 2 harddrive seemed to cause more lag to the USB to Video Adapter.

    You need a TV.
    The MacBook connects tot eh AppleTV wirelessly.
    The AppleTV is to play iTunes content from your MacBook on a TV.
    "Apple TV gives you access to the best 1080p HD content — including blockbuster movies, hit TV shows, live sports, your music, photos, videos, and more — right on your widescreen TV. You can even play content from your iOS device or Mac on your TV using AirPlay."

    I have posted this annoying Robles to bugreport.apple.com. Hope I can get locution (although Apple normally will not respond):
    On a software name Appfresh, it alerted me to update my MBPr 15 inches running latest OSX 10.8.2, with Chinese Word List Update 1.2. When I clicked on Software Pdate, app Store return No update available.
    My system have Chinese Word List Update 1.0 installed, and on October 5, 2012, Chinese Word List Update 1.1 was released by Apple, as alerted through AppFresh. However, this update never get updated on m system. I have to manually download chinesewordlistupdate.pkg from reviews.cnet.com/macfixit and install it manually. By doing so, I have Chinese Word List Update 1.1 on my system.
    The same problem occurred again today on November 5, 2012, where Chinese Word List Update is released by Apple. again, it fail to update from Software Update menu.
    Can you please:
    1. Explain why this problem occurred. This is so annoying.
    2. Advise me how can I get this Chinese Word List Date to update to version 1.2. Can you please send me the chinesewordlistupdate.pkg for version 1,2 so that I can manually install it on my system?
    3. How can I prevent similar problem with he subsequent version?
    Why Apple don't make this update standard as other update?
    Support please. Thank for response in advance

  • When installing Maverick on my 17" Macbook pro I got the message that my HD is damaged and can't be repaired. I now can't restart without simply repeating the attempt to install Maverick and thereby returning to the same message. How do I abort install

    When installing Maverick on my 17" Macbook pro I got the message that my HD was damaged and couldn't be repaired. (not good news!!) I now can't restart without returning  to the Maverick setup and therefore returning to the same message. How do I abort the Maverick installation so that I can try to return to the previous OS so that I can try to recover/repair the HD

    I have the same problem with my 2008 MacBook. Repair disk from disk utility says it was successful but the installer thinks it's groundhog day after a reboot. I also tried fsck -fy after booting in to a command mode and it came back clean but again the installer gives the same error message. It seems like a bit is stuck somewhere indicating my HD is bad when it isn't.
    I had the latest version of Mountain Lion and have applied every upgrade up to then without issue.
    Anyone find a solution yet without having to erase the entire disk and staring over?
    Attached is a screen shot of the error.

  • Can i connect my cintiq 12wx to my Macbook pro 2011 through the thunderbolt using the mini display port to vga adaptor?

    I just bought my cintiq 12wx and was wonderding if i can connect it to my macbook pro 2011 through the thurderbolt using a mini displayport to vga adaptor? Please help!

    Yes, it should work with a mini-displayport to VGA adapter.  Since a 12wx also can take DVI you could use a mini-displayport to DVI adapter instead.  Why go analog when you can keep it in digital!
    I guess the usb is for the pen.

  • Why does my macbook pro not have an apperance tab under display

    I am trying to connect my macbook pro to my tv to watch Netflix via an adapter and HDMI cable.  I went into Display to go to Appearance and turn on mirroring but I don't have an appearance tab under display.  Is there somewhere else this would be?

    Thank you very much but now I have another question.  I plugged in my adapter to my computer, plugged the adapter into the HDMI cable, plugged the HDMI Cable to my TV. I have tried the Detect displays button after I changed my TV to the HDMI source and Before I changed my TV but I still can't get my computer to detect any displays.  Do you happen to have any suggestions?

    18. What is the maximum resolution available for use with the Apple Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter?
    The resolution available with the Apple Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter is 1920 x 1200. VGA displays that use higher refresh rates (such as 85 Hz) at resolutions of 1600 x 1200 or greater may not generate video properly until you lower the refresh rate.

    How can I detect displays?
    If the detect displays option is not available, hold down the Option key while you are in the Display pane.
    How do I select additional resolutions on my display?
    You can use the Display pane of System Preferences to specify how your display works. Not all options appear for all display models. By default the best resolution for your display will already be selected in System Preferences.
    To select a different resolution, use the Scaled option. Some additional resolutions may be available when you hold the Option button.
    I hope this information helps ....

  • How do you connect a second monitor to a MacBook Pro

    i am wanting to connect a second monitor to my MAC so i can have 2 of my pages showing at the same time. how do i do that?

    I am pretty sure the MacBook and MacBook Pro only supports ONE external monitor of any description, even though the cabling will support two.
    The short story, that Courcoul has alluded to but not stated, is this:
    All you need is an Adapter. All the software to do elegant multiple display work is already in place in your Mac, and will be activated automatically the moment you plug it in. Nothing to Install, no settings to change. Just plug in the display.
    The default mode is Extended Desktop, where the one-monitor desktop is enhanced by having the area of the second display appended to its right side (or any other side you specify). The mouse moves freely from one display to the other, and can drag windows with it, which can be resized on the other display. You can even drop things so that half is on each display, and they will scroll and update "the right way".
