Technical question...Need help!

Posted:
in General Discussion edited January 2014
I have a bit of a scenario here. I recently bought a LG 32" HDTV and a Denon AVR-888 receiver. I want to hook my Mac Pro through the receiver so I can be in the living room and use the computer when I'm not doing any kind of work. The receiver has any input imaginable: Component, HDMI, RCA, are all there, I am just wondering how I would get the Video and Audio to the receiver through one input. Any help? I know one way to do it would be video to the TV, then audio to the receiver, but then i need two remotes. Anyone think of a way to do it through the receiver?

    If the Mac Pro has a DVI-Out, you can use this to hook up a video cable from the Mac to the Receiver.

    How is the quality of he picture going to be though with that? Reading text on a website and stuff like that...1080p wouldnt be possible with that cable.

    Ah, I didn't thought about 1080p.



    You can use a DVI to HDMI adapter or/and an appropriate cable. They promise to deliver full 1080p, but regarding reading websites on a TV screen, I don't know.

    A DVI to HDMI cable is the way to go. I have used one of those to drive my parents' HDTV at 1080p from a MacBook.

    The DVI to HDMI seems to be the best solution, I just don't know about running the video to the receiver though HDMI and running the audio separate is going to be a problem or not. I guess I'll just have to try it and find out. Worse comes to worse I will have to run the video to the TV and the audio to the receiver, but the point of buying the receiver is to avoid that. I guess I'll see how it turns out. Thanks for the help.
