OS X :: Connecting MacBook Pro To TV?
If I purchase this item here:

[URL]

Then all I need is a VGA cable and I should be able to use my tv as a monitor, right? The only thing I dont understand is...what does "female" mean? Instead of just "to VGA" it says "to VGA female"....will that be a problem?

MacBook Pro :: How To Know Is Connecting Via Wireless - N
I've tried multiple searches (both here and Google) with nothing. I just upgraded my wireless router to the Linksys WRT160N. I have it set to Mixed, as it causes an issue with my PSP not being able to connect (it only uses 802.11b for some reason). My MBP has the 5,1 model identifier (late 2008), and I checked Network Utility and it has 'n' listed under AirPort. What I need to know is if my MBP is connecting to my router via the 'n' range. How do I do this?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Older TV?
I have a MacBook Pro and an "old" Sony Trinitron TV. I want to output the computer to the TV screen. What do I need? Web searches have been confusing and uncooperative.

This is what the back of my TV looks like.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To My TV/MBP
An apple consultant at Best Buy sold me the mini display port to VGA adapter, VGA display cable, and stereo audio cable. When all set up, the volume comes through the TV very very low and the only picture I get is the purple light in outerspace MacBook picture, not the movie playing on my macbook.

OS X :: Connecting Macbook Pro To TV And Speakers?
I'm a lifelong PC user who is making the switch from a PC desktop to a macbook pro. Currently I have A set of Klipsch promedia 5.1 surround sound speakers. I am also anticipating inheriting a samsung television from a friend. I would like to be able to use my current speakers and and my new t.v. with my macbook, but I've got a couple of questions here.

1) It looks like the television has a vga input on it. So I'm assuming my best bet is to get the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter. what can I expect in terms of quality here? The television is 1080p. Will i be able to get 1080p through a vga adapter? Is there a better option out there?

2) Assuming the television did have a DVI port on it, what is the difference between the Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter and the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter?

3) I would very much like to have both the television and the macbook hooked up to the klipsch speakers. I'm assuming my best option for connecting the macbook is something like the Griffin Firewave. (Sadly it looks as if this has been discontinued.) The Television's only audio out is optical. Does anyone know of an external sound card that would allow me to connect both the macbook and the television? Or if someone has a better solution as to how to accomplish that; I'm all ears.

OS X :: Connecting MacBook Pro To LCD TV
I'm trying to connect my MacBook Pro (just purchased this year) to my television, which is a relatively new (2-3 years old give or take) Magnavox 20" flat panel LCD TV (For reference: [URL] It can display HDTV and EDTV, and has the input for a VGA cable and standard AV & S-Video inputs, as well as a PC input with what looks like input for male DVI. All in all it looks capable of handling the MBP's input. I've tried connecting the mini DVI-VGA adapter to the VGA cable, and the macbook's screen flickers and reverts to normal (with the additional display detected and seeming to function on the mac side).

However, no image appears on my TV screen, except when I'm playing around with the resolution (at which point, an image almost comes on, briefly flickers on with a slightly off-color, then reverts back to a blank screen). At first I thought this was a resolution problem, but even at the macbook's lowest resolution, nothing came onto the screen except that flicker. Would I need a converter or something to get the image onto the screen? I was doing some research and, while my TV doesn't seem that old, I'm wondering whether it might be digital vs. analog signal or something?

OS X :: Connecting To WD TV Live Plus From My Macbook Pro?
I have a WD TV Live Plus hub on my network that I connect my WD Passport into to run my media but I want to be able to stream my media from my macbook pro on my network. From the MBP, I can see the WD but can't connect to it. I use a Belkin router. I have spoken to WD and they went back and forth.

I run OS X 10.6.4 Snow Leopard and have shared my folders to read and write.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Toshiba TV?
I am using a rocketfish adapter to connect MacBook Pro to a Toshiba TV with HDMI. I can see all icons and apps on the Mac but only the typical Mac background screen on the TV (you know the stars and northern lights). No apps are showing on the TV. So, there is a connection because I can see the trademark Apple background on the screen, but none of the apps are showing while I work away on the Mac. I did the same thing with my Sony TV tv and I was able to see everything on the Sony screen. Is there a compatability problem with the Toshiba or is there something I need to do to reconfigure the Mac ?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Non Secured Network?
I just got a used MBP and my linksys router is set to MAC filtering but has no security set currently. When I try to configure airport to connect it only gives me an option of connecting to a secured network. It is set by default to WEP and has the other options available but no option for non-secured.

I know it SHOULD be secured but I have another windows machine that has issues connecting to a secured network.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting Over Wifi To Touch?
I've been struggling with this problem since getting my Macbook Pro in mid February.I CANNOT connect to my iPod Touch over my wifi. They're both on the same subnet, router etc but cannot get them to connect at all like I used to.I'm trying to connect so I can use 'Air Sharing', 'Daylite Touch' and '1Password' syncing but have been having this trouble that's preventing me from doing so.Weird thing is that it connects fine to my old Powerbook.Can't connect either with web browser OR Bonjour. Got an error message when trying to connect via 'afp' and got error message of "(Error code -360)"Hopefully they don't pull down this posting like my last one.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting A Video Camera?
I have a MacBook Pro with a firewire port, 3 USB ports, and a mini display port. My video camera will not work off the USB...it doesn't seem to exist when I do USB to miniUSB. It has HDMI output and records on mini-DVDs. How do I get my video off my camera and on to my Mac? The Apple people at the local store said one thing. The support desk at Apple said another and the local people said that would have no audio and be video only. I can't afford to buy another video camera with firewire.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To The Internet (timed Out)
I bought my computer in February and have been using it near-daily since. Until last week, I had no issues connecting to the internet on it. Then, in the middle of one of my internet sessions (I was only checking my Yahoo mail, so I doubt that's what triggered it) my internet connection suddenly timed out. Even though Airport showed my network at the top of the list of available networks, and showed that the connection was excellent, and still had the password to the network stored in the keychain, every time I tried to rejoin my network, a notice popped up saying that the connection was timed out. In addition to this, something called a device popped up in the list of my available networks, and when I clicked on it, a shared music folder opened in iTunes under one of my neighbor's names.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Network Printer?
My daughter just got a MacBook Pro for Christmas. We are all on PC's and have a network with a router. Two printers are on the network with print servers. I've tried to print to these printers after installing them using IP and inputing their IP addresses. Does not work. Not familiar with Apple terminology but from all I've read on the Apple website I think I'm doing right. The print servers are little Netgear PS 121 USB print servers.

MacBook Pro :: Magic Mouse Not Connecting
I have recently had problems with my magic mouse connecting to my Macbook Pro as it says that there is already a mouse connected to the computer, which I cannot disconnect. I have tried another magic mouse I have and the same problem occurs. I have tried switching the bluetooth on and off but it will not allow me to do this. Since today as well, everytime I go into mouse or bluetooth preferences or bluetooth set up assistance, the program freezes and then closes. This now means that my bluetooth wireless keyboard will not connect either.

It never gets past the internet step to the server step. I was given a password and username, but I have no idea where to use it. I tried to log into the modem to no avail.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Public Wireless
I have a problem connecting to certain public wireless systems that I am almost certain involves a simple change of settings in the network settings. On certain public unsecured wireless systems I am not able to connect using the mac OS, but when I reboot to Windoze under bootcamp on the same system it connects without a problem. Also, when booted to the mac side, I am able to use skype, even though I cannot connect with Safari or Firefox. Can anyone give me a hint as to which settings would need to be changed to allow connecting with Safari or Firefox. The two places that I was recently unable to connect under the mac side, but was able to connect under the Windoze side was the public system at the Orlando airport and a resort in Jamaica. At the Orlando airport, there were several macs connected, so I am certain that a setting has to be changed.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Access Point?
I am having trouble connecting my Macbook Pro to my access point. I have a wireless router which I am unable to connect to. Right noe the problem seems to be something with the Macbook Pro since I am able to connect to the same wireless network with a Windows netbook with no problems. When I attempt to connect to the wireless network using my Macbook, I try to connect to the internet but when I do the computer asks me for the router password. after inputting the correct password I get prompted again to enter the same password.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To The Internet Via Wifi
I started having issues connecting to the internet via wi-fi. It connects fine and I have a good signal, and I can use the internet for about 30 seconds before it stops. Browsers show "waiting for [URL] and fail to load. I'm connecting to my school's network, so I can't update routers or anything like that. I did a software update, but that did not fix the problem. This just started happening today. The same thing happens when I run XP via boot camp. The only solution is to turn off wifi and turn it back on. Wired connection is fine. I am using a 13" MacBook Pro, running OSX 10.6.4.

MacBook Pro :: Magnetic Charger Not Connecting
I bought my MacBook Pro back in August, and haven't had any problems until now. When I plug in my charger, the little green light will come on, switch to orange, and after about two minutes or so, turn off. It turns off when I move, and I have to unplug it from the computer and try a couple times (both facing forwards and backwards) to get it to connect again, and then keep repeating the process. I have AppleCare, does anyone know if this would be covered under my warranty?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Tv - Display Config
I seem to have trouble connecting my mpb with certain hdtv's - sony, toshiba. the screen resolution seems to always be bigger than the actual tv size, so the ends are cut off, such as menubar and dock can't be seen.
i can't change the settings on my tv, and the display settings on the mbp are limited. is there any app which can adjust the screen size manually? such as a zoom out tool?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To LCD Monitor And TV?
What cables do I need to hook my early 08 MacBook Pro up to my TV and External LCD Monitor? Here's a quick rundown of what I want hooked up. TV, MacBook Pro, and LCD Monitor.MacBook Pro - has a DVI port.TV - has a DVI port and a couple HDMI ports.LCD monitor - is VGA (currently using a VGA to DVI converter to hook up to my Mac).

From my understanding, I will need a DVI extension and a DVI Y splitter either DVI/VGA or DVI/DVI.

Does this seem right? Is their a better way to do this?

OS X :: Macbook Pro - Connecting To A 5.1 Audio System?
I have a Macbook Pro unibody and want to get it to my Z-5500 audio system. The Z-5500 has ports for regular mini-plug (6-channel), toslink, and coaxial.

My toslink is already occupied. The mini-plug (6-channel) is occupied by windows PC. So that leaves coaxial.

How would I go about connecting the Mac's audio port (which actually support toslink connections using a mini-plug to toslink adapter) to the Z-5500 coax port?

OS X :: Connecting MacBook Pro To Samsung LCD
I thought it would be pretty straight forward connecting my mbp to my lcd samsung. I'm using a belkin hdmi to dvi, and after I connect and select the input on the tv, all I see is the original os x background on the tv. Ao at least I am seeing something and the cable seems to be working, but that's all I see. I can't get anything else to display. When I watch instruction videos people just seem to get the whole desktop with dash and everything to display right after connecting.

MacBook Pro :: Static Noise When Connecting To TV?
I connected my MacBook Pro to my TV (non-HD) using a 3.5 to L/R composite for audio (from headset hole) and an Apple DVI to S-Video/composite for video. I'm using the S-video part of the adapter. I get good sound out of both channels, but when I connect the S-video cable, I immediately get static feedback from the stereo speakers (the L/R composites are connected directly into my stereo receiver and the S-video goes into my TV).

The video quality is fine when it's connected...

MacBook Pro :: Connecting IPhone 3G Via Bluetooth
I'm trying to connect my iPhone to my new mbp via bluetooth. The ultimate goal is being able to tether, using my different carrier profile that I have (4.0 maybe?). The thing I don't understand is that this worked legitimately like last week and then I got a new hdd and it now doesn't connect via bluetooth. If I go through the set up assistant, I can get the devices paired, but on both my computer and my iphone it says the devices are not "connected". If, on my iphone I click on MacBook Pro - Not Connected" I can see on my computer that it is connected for about 3 seconds and then it goes back to not being connected.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To Internet Through IPhone Possible?
I am a first time MacBook Pro user. I bought this laptop for my business and, when on travel, will need to connect my laptop to the Internet wirelessly. Can I connect my MacBook to the Internet through my I-Phone? Will I need to add software to one or both systems (I-Phone and MacBook) to do this?

As a backup, are there any pay-as-you-go aircards that actually work on a Mac system? I have heard/read negative things about the Virgin Mobile Aircard. Bottom line is that I need reliable connectivity on occasion, thus I do not need a 1 or 2 year contract.
