I do not have a speaker on the HDTV. My desire is for the sound to come from the MAC through the receiver to the speakers. I purchased a minijack to RCA cable for audio. Minijack at the Mac (headphone connection) and RCA connections (red and white) to the VSX. I've tried everything and can't get any sound. I currently have the RCA connections hooked into the audio only inputs on the back of the VSX.
I must be missing something...Any ideas
I think your hookup from the MAC is OK the way you describe it except I don't know what "audio only" is? CD input maybe?
First try this: Press the "SIGNAL SEL" button on the remote a couple of times you may get audio without any further work. If not use the following as an example.
Since you don't say what ports you're into let's assume you're going to work with the DVD input. (you can use most of the inputs in setup)
Plug your HDMI/DVI cable into HDMI-1
Plug your RCAs into DVD
Go into setup (DVD) and assign HDMI-1 to HDMI
Turn everything on, you should have video when you select DVD. On your remote press the "SIGNAL SEL" button a couple of times, until you hear audio.
The Signal Select button will cycle your audio input from HDMI to Digital to Analog. HDMI is the default until you tell it otherwise.
Good luck. Should work
