Sound problems playing media via a Mac Mini connected to the TV
I've got a tricky one. I've connected my Soundbar to my LG TV (65C9PTA if it helps) via optical, and also have a Mac Mini connected to the TV via HDMI that I use as a media centre for my son. Unfortunately, whenever I play media on the Mini - mainly in VLC, the sound goes a little whack and voices don't come out as clearly as if I were playing the same file directly from the TV.
Does anyone know what the problem is? I'm assuming it has something to do with the translation of audio output from Mini to TV to Soundbar? I've tried changing the audio mode in VLC from original to mono which helps with the voices a little, but no where near the quality if played directly through the TV.
You help would be much appreciated
