Hello borqcard, sounds like IE is blocking CNN due to the content advisor enabled, Or whom ever configured your router may have Cnn blocked, I would start by checking your router settings to see if CNN is blocked.

Pairing MacBook Air (2012) with Aluratek 30 pin bluetooth audio receiver please help

I'm not clear what "30 pin" refers to. It sounds irrelevant to your question or am I missing something?

Try this:
Go to System Preferences, click on Sound. Make sure you are on the Output tab. Select your device.

I have a mac air and I am having volume problem. When I attempt to adjust the volume I get a circle with a line over it. Also I can no longer watch video since this problem occur. The video would load play...

The problem is that the headphone jack for you Macbook Air is a copy Analog (standard headphones) and Optical (toslink) jack. The jack has a small microswitch that detects when the cable inserted into the jack is a metal analog connector or a fiber optic toslink cable. The reason your seeing the "NOT ALLOWED" sign (circle with a slash through it) is because you cannot not adjust the volume on the sound when the output is in DIGITAL MODE. To verify this, drop down the jack cover on the side of your macbook air and place your index directly in-front of the headphone jack about 1/2" away from it. Is you finger glowing red? That's because the fiber optic LED is turned on and Mac OS X thinks that there is a toslink cable inserted into the jack.
This is a known hardware problem with that type of combo-jack and affects a lot of other Macbooks, as well.
If your Macbook Air is still covered by Apple Care, take it into an Apple store and have them replace the jack. I know this is a pain, but it is the correct answer.
If your Macbook Air is NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY, you can attempt to fix this yourself, but be warned, you could break stuff!
Here is a thread at the Apple support forums discussing this issue:
The above link is good background reading and will help you understand the issue further. The short answer is that many people have inserted a toothpick (other similarly sized NON METAL object) into the headphone jack, wiggled around until the microswitch is clicked off, then normal audio resumes. My 2009 Macbook Pro 17" has the same issue, but I have found that I can take a regular pair of headphones, insert the jack, wiggle it, remove it, reinsert, remove it....and repeat this process until the switch gets toggled. It's annoying, but I have to do this until I get home and can send it back to Apple for warranty work.

External sound won't work. red light on audio port when try to turn it up a 'no entry' sign comes up

This is a VERY common problem with all types of MacBooks. However, it is also VERY easy to fix this problem. What you'll need: A can of compressed air ( for dusting off computers and electrical components).
Step 1: Insert the end of the straw (the end the air comes out of) into your earphone jack (the audio port that the red light is coming out of). No need to jam it in there. Just insert it about 1/4 inch.
Step 2: Spray bursts of air into the port. This will NOT harm the MacBook. I won a MacBook repair business and we use this technique frequently. While you apply the air, try the volume button over and over. Sometimes you have to wait a couple of seconds after you apply the air. The air pressure corrects the switch inside that usually gets out of whack after using headphones or external speakers. The volume problem has even happened to my personal MacBooks. Don't forget to vote after this helps you out. Here's my e-mail in case you have further questions: (iPatch Solutuons)

I have connected my macbook to my tv using mini

Later MacBook (Pro) use a mini-DVI connector that does not pass analog needed for composite or S-video. Was yours ever working? And most DVI connectors do not pass sound as seen by your cabling. You cannot detect display through RCA. You just set it in Sys Prefs :: Displays, try some other settings, although your seem right.
I have a white early-2009 MacBook and mini-DVI to HDMI adapter (monoprice <$10) and HDMI cable and have not connected the TOS-link for sound, yet--just slideshows at 1920x1080. You will get a much better picture digitally. -Ken

My video's are choppy both sound and video only on CNN. they use to play fine. Any reason for this? I'm running windows XP and explorer 8.

If this is only on CNN, then it is website specific, and nothing to do with your PC. To verify, try a different site, say YouTube or BBC, etc and check. If they are OK, then it is a fault with the CNN broadcast and there isn't much you can do about it.

Should you experience the same issue on the other sites as well, you may have to update the sound and video driver. You can easily do a Google for your specific sound/video cards and obtain a download, or select the "update driver" button from within the device manager.

Hope that helps! Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.
