How to Output Audio from Mac Mini to LCD TV Using HDMI Cable

Apple's Mac Mini with HDMI connector

So, you manage to connect your Mac Mini to your television, switch on the mini but you can only hear sounds coming out of the Mini’s internal speakers. You tried tuning your TV and have no idea why the sounds are not emitting through your TV. Yep, that was my experience as well until I found out that there needs to be a simple configuration that needed to output audio from my Mac Mini to my LCD TV using the HDMI cable.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Click on System Preferences
  2. Click on Sound listed under Hardware
  3. Click on the Output tab
  4. Select HDMI
  5. Turn down your TV’s volume (lest you shock yourself)

That’s all there is to it.  Enjoy! 🙂
