Hi. I'm a noob when it comes to anything Apple and a double noob when it comes to audio/visual equipment.... but my daughter now has a macbook pro and wants to link it into my Pioneer VSX-521 for both video and audio.

There is one hdmi output on the macbook pro

I can plug this into one of the various HDMI ports behind the pioneer, and I can get audio. How on earth do I also get the video?

any ideas welcomed

You've really got a couple of options depending on what your monitor supports.
The simplest will be HDMI from the Mac to the input on the Pioneer and then the HDMI out to the HDMI input on the TV

The alternative is to feed the HDMI direct to the monitor and use the audio out from the monitor to feed the Pioneer.

This all relies on your cables being good and the monitor being able to deal with the HDMIoutput from the Mac (connect directly cutting out the Pioneer to check).

It's not actually a TV but a ceiling mounted projector that is linked to the pioneer so I have no ability to try mac direct to that device.

I'm just giving in and have vetoed any change of configuration (last time this daughter fiddled I had to replace the receiver).

Thanks for the reply.
