You will need an audio cable to go from the audio out audio in port to your TV. I may be wrong about audio out from the Thunderbolt port but all I've read from Apple indicates that it's video only. And of course data to Thunderbolt devices. Does anyone have a model they can try? I know it did on the This is a real bummer to not work on the model.

Add to all of this I just read something that may help: Some adapters do and some don't according to what I read. And as I said above, I'm not sure that the Thunderbolt supports audio or not, although again, Apple does not say. Based on your description and the sequence you must under take to get the unit working it seems like there is an issue with your Macbook properly detecting and displaying through the Mini DisplayPort when it's connected while the computer is on.

I would suggest contacting Apple for a possible solution to the Mac not correctly detecting the adapter. You could take your RF-AP and a copy of your receipt to your place of purchase in order to pursue the possibility of warranty repair or replacement, but I believe you would encounter the same issue with a new unit.

I tried this on a different MBA. Same thing happened! So I don't think this is something that is wrong is with my Mac. It might be a software or firmware issue but that is something that Apple and Rocketfish need to to investigate. And since I am not the first person to raise the issue my entry was a reply to another of your customers who is experiencing a similar problem I don't think pointing the finger at Apple should be your next move Turn on suggestions.

The Selected Device has no output controls. Help in this regards is highly appreciated More Less. Helpful answers Drop Down menu. I am experiencing similar issues with no real solution yet: I have a Mac Mini connected to a Sony Bravia HD TV via an HDMI cable sound output via TV speakers was not working when I first connected the two about 4 mos ago couldn't figure it out- and just used an headphone cable to connect the mac mini to a stereo somewhere between then and a month ago I disconnected all incl.

In not sure if I had this before or not - dont completely remember seeing it, but vaguely do I've also updated my macmini whenever an update is released within a few days She then recommended that I go into the Apple store and have the mini checked out I asked to have it hooked up to one on display - so I could see for myself. I still could not adjust the volume bar it went greyed out - but I could crank up the tv volume directly and get sound.

Sort of While now I could get sound - it was not the same as before where I could control the sound through the mac - only directly through the TV. The Apple guy said that he didn't know what I was talking about - and said that they way the machine was now working was the proper way.

Why is my HDMI signal dropping out?

He unhooked my mac mini, and gave it to me, and walked away. Same result as in the Apple store. I could control sound directly via the TV, but not through the mac mini controls. Tried to wake the mini - but couldn't. Had to resort to pressing the button at the back. When the mini came back, I had no sound at all coming through the TV speakers, even though the sound preferences settings were still the same. I had to resort to shutting down the mac mini, and then unplugging the power on the mini for a few minutes. Powering back up, sound was again able to comefromt eh mac through the TV speakers - but still could not control sound using the mac mini controls Thats where Im at so far Thanks in advance, MAJM.
