Latest Snow Leopard Update Causes Problem With Mac Mini Ports

"Apple's latest Snow Leopard update seems to be wreaking havoc with audio out through the optical and HDMI ports on the Mac mini."

Some users are reporting this problem and it has shown up on the support boards at Apple. What happens is audio drops out and the only solution is to do a complete reboot. Talk about annoying.

MacBook Upgrade Includes HDMI Bonus

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Laptops" @ 10:00 AM

"Apple's updated entry level white MacBook now supports audio and video output via its Mini DisplayPort, enabling users to drive an HDMI HDTV using a single cable or adapter."

This brings it even with the MacBook Pros so now you can hook a MacBook up to your TV via HDMI and get both sound and picture without having to have a separate audio cable.

Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Coming. Soon. Cheap.

"Well here's something I've been eagerly awaiting for a few months now. MonoPrice.com (who doesn't actually make the cable as far as I know) has revealed that come March 15th they'll be selling a Mini Display Port to HDMI adapter for the low, low price of just $14.25."

Well, it's a little later than initially promised, but I don't care. Monoprice.com is where I buy all my cables when it comes to audio cables and particularly HDMI cables and I'll definitely be snatching up one of these the second they become available.

Monoprice to Offer MiniDP to HDMI Next Month

Posted by Vincent Ferrari in "Apple Laptops" @ 10:00 AM

"Mini DisplayPort might be an industry standard, but it doesn't mean we miss HDMI on the new MacBooks any less. Apple isn't helping us yet, either. But MonoPrice.com will reportedly answer our prayers next month."

This should remedy the DRM issues people are coming across when playing HD content through the MiniDP connector on the MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air. I'm somewhat annoyed that Apple isn't offering this cable themselves, particularly since they were the ones who decided to go MiniDP first, but knowing how much Apple charges for stupid little accessories and adapters, maybe it's better that a company like MonoPrice is doing it instead. I'm just glad Apple licensed the port's specs out to manufacturers so that it didn't become an unused and stagnant standard.
