I am trying to play movies through my new Yamaha RX A-2010 AV receiver from my Macbook Pro via the thunderbolt connection converted to HDMI.
The receiver recognises the sound, but the laptop does not see the HDTV through receiver. As a consequence, no image signal is sent to the receiver, and then on to the HDTV.
When I connect the laptop directly to the HDTV - the TV appears as a display choice alongside the laptop, and when chosen, the image is perfect.
I then connect the headphone jack out via phono/RCA plugs to the receiver and I get sound, which appears to decode into surround sound,but this is quite inelegant.
Am I doing something wrong, and is there a way of getting the laptop to recognise there is anothe monitor?
