Greetings all,


I have a 2010 Mac Mini plugged into a Yamaha RX-V71 Receiver via HDMI.  The receiver is plugged into a Samsung TV via HDMI.  The image displays correctly onto the TV however the audio only plays through the Mac Mini's internal stereo.  When I go to System Preferences -> Sound - > Output - my receiver is not listed.  The only items listed are the Mac Mini and the Samsung TV.  When I go to Applications -> Utilities -> Audio MIDI Setup the receiver is not listed only the Mac Mini and the Samsung TV.


I have swapped out HDMI cables.  Mac Mini is updated to Lion 10.8.2.  The receiver is on and I have tried restarting the TV, Mini and receiver multiple times in different orders.


Does anyone have any suggestions or a fix for this?



Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
