Question about Sanyo DP42746 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

I connected my Mid 2009 Macbook Pro to my Sanyo DP42746 Sanyo with a minidisplay port to HDMI adaptor. My Macbook doesn't support sound through the minidisplay port. The TV owner's manual suggests connecting HDMI for video and audio into video 3 in such cases. So, I used audio to L/R composite audio adaptor cable to go from my Macbook to the L/R inputs on Video 3 as the manual said. I still have no sound. Is there some weird connection/power-on sequence I should be aware of?

It may have something to do with the settings under audio output devices. See if you have options, and ensure that the headphone jack (I assume that's what you're using) is set as the default sound device.

    In this configuration, when the TV is on HDMI, I have video w/o audio, on Video 3, I have audio w/o video. So, I know it isn't my computer settings.

SOURCE: when i plug an hdmi

Hi, When you use the HDMI you have to switch the TV to HDMI to make it work. Not the other way around. Select the menu on your TV click to HDMI 1 or 2 depending which you are using. Sometime you have to ignor what it says. Try it out any way. Good luck.

SOURCE: When i try to play my x box on my sanyo tv no sound comes out of the tv

Try a different HDMI input and a different cable.

DVI is same as HDMI in regards to the picture signal, but lacks the audio.

Apparently for some reason the TV does not pick up audio and that could be because the HDMI port has a problem (say physical contact) or because the cable has a problem or (of course) because the XBOX does not output signal for some reason.

My first two picks would be the port and the cable.

hope this helps!

SOURCE: problem using Audio 3 sound inputs for HDMI video

Normally this problem is simply a matter of selecting the correct default audio playback device in the Windows control panel (sound option).
Check the Playback tab and set the default device to either DVI or HDMI.

VGA to HDMI cables don't work. They're a con. VGA is an analogue signal. HDMI is digital. It's not possible to convert from one to the other with just a bit of wire.

Hard to say without knowing exactly what Mac you have and what specs, but most likely reason would be your system doesn't meet the requirements (From Apple support site) - To install Mavericks, you need one of these Macs:
  • iMac (Mid-2007 or later)
  • MacBook (13-inch Aluminum, Late 2008), (13-inch, Early 2009 or later)
  • MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid-2009 or later),
  • MacBook Pro (15-inch or 17-inch, Mid/Late 2007 or later)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or later)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or later)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or later)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)
Your Mac also needs:
  • OS X Mountain Lion, Lion, or Snow Leopard v10.6.8 already installed

Firewire connector doesn't match


It sounds like you may have one of the newest MBPs that doesn't have a firewire port. If that is the case, it is still possible to connect firewire peripherals through a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter cable.

I have a 24" aoc 2436Vh display and a new 15"


I purchased the AOC 2436Vh display yesterday. To get my MacBook Pro to work with it I purchased Apple's Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter. Since the monitor comes with the VGA cable, all you need is the adapter to plug it into your MacBook Pro. It works beautifully and set up is easy if you know your way around the Mac. Although the HDMI works perfectly with my PS3, I strongly recommend the Apple Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter. I hope this helps.

How can I hook up MacBook Pro with Optoma 1690 Projector? Am I supposed to hit a certain function key to get Projector to see MacBook


You may need a certain connection (MiniDisplay Port to DVI, or MiniDisplay Port to VGA). If you're connecting to an HDMI-compatible projector, you'll need an adapter. You'll also need an adapter if connecting your MDP (MiniDisplay Port) to a DVI or VGA port. Here are some helpful links:
#1 MDP Adapter Video (YouTube)
#2 MDP to HDMI Adapter (RadioShack)
#3 MDP to VGA Adapter (Apple Store)
#4 MDP to DVI Adapter (Apple Store)

Yes. The S-video adapter is not supported on more recent MacBook computers -- those having NVIDIA graphics cards: MacBook (13-inch, Mid 2009) and MacBook (13-inch, Early 2009).
