Hardware :: Mini Displayport - Vga - Vga / Dvi-i Adapter - Dvi-i / Hdmi Cable - 1080p Hdtv?

Dec 24, 2008

i just bought the macbook alu. w/ the mini displayport, i tried to plug it directly to my samsung 1080p hdtv with the Mdport to vga cable but the tv didnt display anything. so i searched the web to find other solutions (Mdport to dvi -> dvi to hdmi cable), but for me that means buying 2 other cables so i was wondering if i could use this route: mini displayport to vga -> vga/dvi-i adapter -> dvi-i/hdmi cable -> 1080p hdtv? with this example, i would have to buy only the dvi-i/hdmi cable since I already have the vga/dvi-i adapter (my old MSI 6600gt one) so hows that sound? thx for giving me the answer ASAP cause I need to make a surprise presentation for my boy!

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To External Display - Apple Mini Displayport To DVI And DVI To DVI Cable

Oct 7, 2009

I have a presentation tomorrow and need to hook up my MBP to the projector in class. I bought an Apple Mini Displayport to DVI cable, and a DVI to DVI cable. I thought this would be the case, but come to find out the system does not support DVI. So I had to run to Best buy to get a DVI to VGA cable. I tried out the MDP > DVI > VGA rig on my external monitor and got nothing. The screen on my MBP responded by turning blue for a second and then back to normal...but the monitor said "No Signal". Is this some jargon with DVI-D and DVI-I? I need to know by tomorrow morning if I have to run back to the Apple Store and get a Mini Displayport to VGA cable.

Mac Pro :: Using Mini Displayport To DVI, HDMI Or Displayport?

Oct 28, 2009

I have an ATI Radeon 4870HD graphics card which has a Mini Displayport and a Dual-Link DVI port.

I'm connecting this to two Dell U2410 which each have a Displayport, HDMI ,DVI and VGA ports.

I can connect one of the monitors straight to the DVI port, but what should I do with the other? I can't find a Mini Displayport to Displayport adapter for sale in the UK. But there are Mini Displayport to HDMI adapters and Mini Displayport to DVI adapters available.

Also, would it be best to have both monitors on the same connection? If i go the HDMI route should I buy a DVI to HDMI adapter for the other port? Or have both on DVI? Will there be a visible difference between the monitors if they're not on the same type of connection?

PowerPC :: EMac And IMac File Sharing With Ethernet Cable And Other Cable?

Oct 12, 2010

I was wondering how I could file share, or make the whole Hard Drive (HDD) accessible to another computer. The two other computers I have are a Toshiba Laptop with Ethernet and USB, and a iMac Intel with Firewire, USB, and Ethernet. Putting these to use along with:Three Ethernet Cables Now how do I get the whole HDD visible to the others computers (either/both) and be able to write to it? Also, I do not want to use CDs and have no CDs that came with the computers. I want to put Xubuntu on the eMac and Debian on the iMacs and erase the rest of the Hard Drives. The computers getting this are the iMac G3s and the eMac G4 in my Signature.

Jan 9, 2009

I have a Mac Pro with an optical line in. I bought a cable and connected it to the Mac Pro, but the receiver(where I want to plug the line in) is old and only received optical. Is there some sort of adapter that would convert the connect that doesn't cost $200? I was able to connect an analog cable from the front of the mac pro's headphone jack into the back of the receiver, but the sound isn't really the greatest.

Quick question - I have a cable line running from my wall to my cable modem, which in turn connects via ethernet cable to an AEBS. The AEBS provides wireless connectivity to four Macs.

Can I split the cable line in my room so that I may watch TV, or would this cut my download/upload bandwidth in half?

Unfortunately, I don't have all the equipment I need to test this out so I'm asking here: I have a displayport to dvi adapter for my MBP and I also have an older dvi to vga adapter. If I connect the two together would I be able to display on vga-based projector (without causing any damage to the adapters or my computer)?

Hardware :: Mini Displayport To Dvi To Vga?

Sep 3, 2010

I got a mini displayport to dvi adapter for my macbook pro 13". Then I have one of those dvi to vga converters (URL) that i used to use w/ my old desktop.

Will that work ok on top of the displayport to dvi adapter? I tried it on my tv (which only has vga and hdmi, no dvi) and it recognizes the display but I only get a black screen. I've had problems setting the tv up properly in the past, so it could just be the TV. I wanted to rule out it being the vga adapter though.

MacBook Pro :: Get Mini DisplayPort To VGA?

Apr 17, 2010

I need to get a Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter for my new MacBook Pro, but I know there are much cheaper ones about than the ones Apple sells.

Ideally, I'd like a single cable (rather than an adapter to plug a seperate VGA cable into) for a little less clutter on my desk, but if there's no decent solution I'll go with the adapter. I know most people recommend (URL), but I'm in the UK.

Mac Pro :: No Signal From Mini DisplayPort

May 29, 2012

I just recieved my Mini DP to DVI adapter so that I can use my second 23" Apple display. I just upgraded to ATI Radeon HD 5770 so now I have 1 DVI and 2 mini DP. I want to run 1 display off of the DVI and 1 off of the Mini DP. Both displays work with the DVI port but neither of them work on the Mini DP with the adapter.

I know that I need to upgrade to Snow Leopard for the ATI Radeon HD 5770 to fully function. I am waiting for the upgrade to arrive in the mail. Do I need to be running Snow Leopard for the Mini DisplayPorts to work at all or is there something I can fix before the upgrade?

MacBook Air :: MiniDisplayPort To DisplayPort Connections

Dec 17, 2010

The Mac Pro people seem to have trouble with their computers hooked up to monitors using a MiniDisplayPort to DisplayPort connection. There might be issues both with cables and adapters:

[URL]

I'm trying to figure out if it's a problem specific to the Mac Pro video card or if it's a general issue that affects MacBook Air users as well. If you're connecting your MacBook Air to a monitor using a MiniDisplayPort to DisplayPort connection, could you please post which adapter+cable or cable (brands, links if possible) you are using with which monitor?

Hardware :: Monoprice Has A Whole DisplayPort Aisle Now?

Aug 10, 2009

there includes MDP extensions, DP > MDP cables (seems male-to-male only, so no good for ACD + PC video card, but should be nice for the Mac owners with the Dell 3008 to avoid the Apple dual-link thing), and MDP > DVI, HDMI, or VGA cables. Not adapters, full cables, so you don't have the huge weight of a DVI connector 2 inches from your laptop pulling the connector out slowly and make the external monitor go sparkly. (I'm bitter, and will be buying this :P)

Intel Mac :: Why Mini Displayport Not Functioning

Jun 18, 2012

I recently purchased a Mini Displayport to HDMI adapter and 30' HDMI cable to connect my iMac to my 42" Panasonic TV. It worked at first, and then suddenly didn't. I believe I upgraded from OS 10.6.7 to 10.6.8 in between it working and not, could that be the problem? I know the problem is not the cable as I tested it with my XBOX. I don't have a way of telling whether or not it is the adapter itself though though. When it plug it in, there is no blue screen on the iMac like there was at first. When I click 'Detect Displays' nothing happens.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.8), 12Gigs RAM, Late 2009 21.5"

OS X :: MBP To Hdvt - Mini Displayport To Dvi -> Belkin Dvi To Hdmi

Mar 14, 2010

I have trying to get my laptop hooked up to my tv, using the apple mini displayport to DVI -> belkin DVI to HDMI cable setup (as recommended by the dude int eh apple store - which i knew and planned on doing anyway :P).

anyway, when i first plugged it in to the tv in my hotel room it worked, 1080p, then stopped .. then randomly worked again after a few ties. Once I got home i hooked it up to my sharp aquos 42 and worked fine, then after it was unplugged and tried to get it working again, it basically just.. wouldn't - i don't get a picture/signal on the tv, no options in the display cp , nor does the screen go blue when it normally finds a monitor/tv. i've tried plugging it in both ends, restarting, turning tv off/on, everything to no avail. I know the dvi-hdmi cable works, used it from a windows desktop to make sure. the mini displayport to DVI works for DVI 100% of the time into one of my monitors.

as mentioned it had worked at first on and off..., and now i cant get it working on my 1080p tv, nor the 720p one that's in my room, neither of them get a picture/signal; no options in display control panel either, or the quick display flash to blue. Furthermore, sometimes when unplugging the dvi cable from the tv i get the laptop screen flash, as when it picks the device up initially.

I never got my emailed invoice from apple when I bought the cables in in SF during macworld so I cant just return it to apple I'm sure.

any ideas would be greatly appreciated, please help this is making me go crazy... worked and now nothing no matter what i try. Oh, also tried on another, new user to see if it was a weird setting that got saved.

Hardware :: Connecting MacBook Pro (mini Displayport) To TV?

I am wanting to connect my MacBook Pro, which has a mni displayport, to my TV. My TV is still of the CRT variety, but supports component video (R, G, B RCA connectors). Has anyone has any luck doing this?

I have found mini DisplayPort to DVI-I adaptors and DVI-I to component video adaptors. Will connecting the two between my Mac and my TV provide me with a working solution?

Desktops :: Using Mini DisplayPort To VGA With A Samsung Monitor

Mar 14, 2009

I have the standard 13" aluminum macbook, and I was looking into getting the 'Mini DisplayPort to VGA' adapter to connect my 22" Samsung monitor. On the Apple website, I have seen nothing but horrible reviews about the connection cable, saying that it exclusively does not work with Samsung brand monitors and TV's. On the other hand I only see good things about it connecting to other devices and monitors.

Can anyone shed any light on this? It's already ridiculous that i have to pay the 30$ price for this cable just to use an external monitor, the least I can do is know that it will for sure work.

IMac :: Can't Connect VGA To Mini DisplayPort Adapter

Sep 12, 2010

I had to send my iMac 27" in for repairs and now I cannot connect the VGA to Mini DisplayPort adapter into the iMac. The other connections work (e.g ethernet and USB) but it looks the the Mini DisplayPort is off alignment with the aluminum enclosure. I know I'm not going crazy because it connected before I had to send it in.
