Медиацентр Mac или HTPC своими руками

Маководы часто задаются вопросом: сложно ли собрать домашний кинотеатр? В действительности ваш MacBook Pro, MacBook, Mac Mini, iMac и даже Mac Pro может легко превратиться в тихий, малошумный и “всеядный” медиацентр – Mac HTPC.

Полагаю, что у вас есть HD-телевизор со HDMI-входом и Mac с HDMI-выходом с поддержкой аудио (для Маков со старыми HDMI без поддержки аудио у нас тоже есть решение). После прочтения статьи вы научитесь подключать медиацентр Mac к ТВ и сможете превратить свой Mac в домашний медиацентр.

Настройка медиацентра Mac

Итак, для настройки медиацентра нам потребуется:

  • HD-телевизор со входом HDMI
  • Mac с аудио/видео выходом (рекомендуются Mac новых моделей, оснащенных разъемом HDMI с поддержкой аудио)
  • Кабель HDMI (или любой другой подходящий кабель для подключения Mac к ТВ)
  • Пульт дистанционного управления Apple Remote
  • Беспроводная клавиатура и мышка Apple (опционально, если вы хотите запускать игры или выходить в Интернет)
  • Plex (лучшее решение для домашнего кинотеатра. Комбайн с отличным интерфейсом, поддержкой аудио и видео широких форматов).

Шаг 1. Выбор подходящего видео-переходника

Большинство современных Маков оснащены выходом HDMI, который передает как видео-, так и аудиосигнал. Для остальных моделей нам потребуется переходник. Например, для моего MacBook Pro 2010 потребовался адаптер Mini DisplayPort to HDMI, а также обычный кабель HDMI. Mac Mini 2010 оснащен выходом HDMI, поэтому дополнительный переходник не требуется.

Требования к проводам для подключения Mac к ТВ варьируются от компьютера к компьютеру, поэтому определите необходимый переходник самостоятельно. В статье Mac Mini: медиацентр, сервер и удаленный торрент-загрузчик в разделе “Аудио и видео кабели” мы перечислили весь список возможных кабелей.

Шаг 2. Загрузка и установка Plex

Плекс – это ответвление от многофункционального и успешного проекта XBMC для платформы Mac OS X. Это действительно отличное ПО для создания домашнего кинотеатра на базе Mac.

Возможности Plex:

  • Легкая организация и каталогизация файлов и доступ к медиабиблиотеке: фильмам, музыке, фотографиям и т.д.
  • Автоматическая загрузка фильмов, ТВ-шоу, обложек альбомов, рейтингов IMDB и другое
  • Практически безупречное воспроизведение видео высокой четкости
  • Плагины для Hulu, Netflix, Youtube, MTV, Vimeo и т.д.
  • Широкая поддержка кодеков для различных форматов видео и аудио
  • Поддержка тем оформления
  • Поддержка субтитров
  • Организации потокового вещания цифрового аудио/видео сигнала в сеть (Shoutcast) и невероятные визуализаторы для музыки
  • Прогноз погоды для выбранного региона
  • Сбор RSS фидов
  • Поддержка пульта Apple Remote, клавиатуры Wireless Keyboard и мышки Wireless Mouse
  • Поддержка аппаратного ускорения H.264 для чипсетов Nvidia 9400M, GT320M, GT330M.

Как видите, программа обладает широким функционалом, поэтому для Mac HTPC я использую Plex. Проще и удобнее медиацентра я не нашел. Настройка программы также очень простая.

Настройка Plex:

  • Загрузите последнюю версию Plex
  • Перенесите приложение в папку Программы
  • Запустите Plex
  • Подождите синхронизации с пультом Apple Remote (возможно потребуется установка сторонних драйверов)
  • С помощью клавиатуры или пульта зайдите в настройки и укажите источник видео (папку или диск)
  • Наслаждайтесь просмотром фильмов, ТВ-шоу или музыкой

Действительно просто. Plex автоматически подключается к библиотеке iTunes и не требует дополнительной настройки. Задать вопросы или узнать подробности о работе Plex вы можете на русском форуме Plex.

Шаг 3. Подключение медиацентра Mac к ТВ

Пропустим все тонкости подключения проводов. Убедитесь, что у вас есть все нужные кабели и подключите Mac к телевизору. Если вы владелец нового Mac mini 2010, то вам потребуется только HDMI-кабель.

Шаг 4. Пользуйтесь медиацентром Mac

После запуска Plex на Mac вам останется только удобно расположиться на диване с пультом в руках и включить любимый фильм. В дальнейшем вы можете кастомизировать Plex с помощью дополнительных плагинов, которые загружаются из приложения.

Вопросы/ответы:

Как мне выйти в Интернет или запустить игру на моем медиацентре Mac?

Просто закройте Plex и запустите Safari или игру. После подключения Мака к ТВ телевизор превращается во внешний монитор для Mac, поэтому вы можете работать с ним как с обычным Маком (играть в игры, выходить в Сеть и т.д.)

Почему речь идет только о настройке медиацентра на новых Mac с выходом HDMI?

Причина, по которой мы рекомендуем вам новые Маки с поддержкой HDMI – простота подключения. Вы можете создать медиацентр из любого Мака, не оснащенного выходом HDMI. Используйте для этого переходник mini-DVI -> DVI или DVI -> HDMI и кабели HDMI и AUX для звука (зависит от модели Mac). Полный набор всех аудио и видео кабелей можете узнать в статье Mac Mini: медиацентр, сервер и удаленный торрент-загрузчик в разделе “Аудио и видео кабели”.

У моего Мака нет выхода HDMI, что мне делать?

Если у вашего Мака нет HDMI-выхода, вы можете использовать переходник DVI -> HDMI. Просто помните, что для передачи аудио вам придется использовать дополнительный кабель (интерфейс DVI транслирует только видео).
