MacBook Pro :: Connecting MBP To HDTV Adapter - No Sound?

Mar 4, 2010

pretty new to the Mac side of things. I got my MBP about 3 weeks ago I think. I got a mini display to hdmi adapter (off ebay, so this may be the problem). I hooked it up to my laptop and tv and it took me a while to find the mirroring box but I got that working so what's on my computer pops up on the tv. I go to play a tv show, and the sound is just on my computer. I went under system pref and sound but only "internal speakers" is available for the output. Am I doing something wrong? Or do I just have a cheap adapter?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To HDTV - Apple Adapter?

Jul 29, 2010

I just ordered a new Macbook pro. I'm going to have a HDTV in my room at school and I want to be able to connect my laptop to it. So I could buy apple's mini displayport to hdmi adapter and then buy a hdmi cable, but that would probably end up costing me like $60. I'm wondering if anyone knows if something like this would work? It seems like it would work but its from hong kong so I donno lol. Anyway, anyone know any cheaper alternative to the over priced apple adapter? Also, I understand that the new macbooks have audio output through the minidisplay port so the adapter has to support audio too.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting It Via Thunderbolt And HDMI Adapter To HDTV?

May 25, 2012

I've got a recent MBP with Thunderbolt. I'm trying to connect it via a Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter to an HDTV with HDMI, but the MBP doesn't seem to acknowledge the addition of the new display. What it IS doing is flickering the built-in screen occasionally, the way it does when connecting to a projector or something, but it never shows any additional displays in the displays CP, and never seems to send any signal out to the HDTV. 

Mac: MBP 2.3 GHz i7 with OS 10.7.4
Adapter: Belkin Mini DisplayPort to HDMI
TV: Sony 32" Bravia

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To HDTV Via VGA Adapter / Achieves Only 1080i Signal?

Oct 4, 2009

When i connect my hdtv to my mbp via vga (using mini displayport vga adapter) I am only achieving a 1080i signal. I did some research and I found that there are two 1080 resolution options in leopard, one being 1080i and the other being 1080p, you simply have to turn the display options on in the menu bar and then select the one you wish to use.

With this new found knowledge i found the two resolution options and tried them however, I found that one of the 1080 resolution options outputted 1080i whilst the other outputted 1050, despite clearly saying 1080. This has me baffled! Is this due to me using a vga cable and has anyone had similar issues? Additionally, is it possible to achieve a 1080p signal from a mbp? Mine is the late 08 model if that makes a difference.

MacBook Pro :: No Audio Connecting To HDTV

May 30, 2010

I had my MBP and TV connected via two cords from Monoprice (Mini DisplayPort Male to HDMI Male 32AWG Cable "5995" which handles video and 3.5mm Stereo Plug/2 RCA Plug Cable "665" which does audio). I'm connecting to a mid 2009 model MBP. I'm aware of the Mini Displayport Male and USB Male Audio to HDMI Female Converting Adapter "5969" however that still required me to purchase a separate HDMI cable to connect to that cord itself plus was four times the total price vs. using 5995 + 665 (plus the Monoprice rep said my method would work just as well).

MacBook Pro :: Default Display Changes When Connecting To HDTV

Mar 17, 2012

My macbook pro has been connecting to my TV appropriately for months. The display is suddenly changing to a different default when I connect now. It was fine two weeks ago and has done 3 software updates in between. I have not loaded other new software. When the thunderbolt connection is made, both screens turn blue, then both display a screen resolution formatting that doesn't fit the screens.

Hardware :: Black Stripes When Connecting MacBook To HDTV?

Nov 1, 2010

I have a Samsung 50" plasma HDTV (1365x768). Whenever try to connect my 13" unibody MacBook pro to the TV (HDMI cable + Mini DisplayPort->HDMI adapter ---> HDMI/DVI input in my TV), I get black stripes on each side of the screen. It's really annoying when watching a movie.

I use SwitchResX, I'm attaching screenshots with my settings. I'm also attaching pictures of those stupid stripes. I don't want to buy any more adapters and cables because they are pricey here where I live.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting A 13" To A Toshiba WLT66 HDTV

May 23, 2010

I want to connect my MBP to my TV to be able to watch BBC iplayer downloads and wondered what cables i will need for picture and audio.

The tv is a Toshiba WLT66 32" with a Mini D-Sub 15 pin connector and my MBP has the mini display port on it.
Do i need the Mini DVI to VGA for vision? I need one about a metre long. The one's i've seen on Apple Store uk are all short (about 15cm)Not sure what audio cable i need though. My TV has HDMI port plus the usual L/R phono type sockets on it and the MBP just has the usual headphone socket.

MacBook Pro :: Get Sound To Play On Samsung HDTV?

Jul 1, 2012

how to get sound to play on my TV from my laptop for several days now. I bought an Mini Display Port to HDMI converter (Kanex Iadapt) off Amazon that is supposed to have audio support. I connected it with the HDMI cable to my TV and changed my display settings to mirror and the picture comes up fine but when I tried to change the output in sound settings to my TV my TV didn't even come up as an option. I went out and bought a Y audio cable figuring my laptop may be older than 2010 and needs an additional cable, plugged the audio cable into the same HDMI outputs in the TV and still no sound.

Hardware :: Connecting G5 To HDTV

Aug 14, 2009

I have a G5 that I wish to connect to a 20" HDTV. In edition I have a regular flat screen monitor that I would like to use as a slave for pallettes etc. My question is, what kind of adapter do I need? On the back of my G5 there are two monitor inputs, one slightly longer than the other. I got a DVI male to HDMI Cable that allows me to connect the HDTV to the less wide of the two inputs but it does not yield an HD Picture. I think what I need is an adapter or cable that would go in the winder of the two slots and then to my HDTV but I dont know what it would be called or what to even look for. Are there two types of DVI male to HDMI Cables, one wider than the other?

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 :: Power Source From Adapter Went Off While Connecting

Jun 25, 2012

I have a MBP for 27 months and something wrong with the power source recently. As my MBP is bought for working purpose as a desktop so mostly i kept my MBP connected with the AC adapter. I will let it run on battery once every month or two so as to keep my battery runs. However a couple of days ago I found the my MBP is running with the battery power instead of AC suddenly, then I let it run till 1X% and recharge my battery again.This situation keep happening recently and I needed to keep recharge my battery all the time, and what even worse is the adapter stopped charging in the middle of charging period for two times. It couldn't complete the whole charging cycle and I needed to disconnect the adapter from the socket for a minute and continue charging again.While the battery is charged, i let my MBP runs with the adapter in on as usual, however the green light will go off suddenly while the battery is still in 100% or so, I have to disconnect the adapter from the socket and plugged in again.

As I now always need to keep an eye on the battery icon and coconutBattery and I found that the percentage of the battery won't drop off before the light goes off. Is my MBP got infected or anything will lead to such case? I am just wondering if the recent software updates lead to such case as the it happened coincidentally.

MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2010), Mac OS X (10.6.8)

MacBook Pro :: Connecting External Hard Drive Via Adapter?

Aug 11, 2010

I just upgraded to a new MacBook Pro as some of you saw in a recent post. My external hard drive is connected to a 400 firewire port but the new mbp's have 800 firewire ports. I have an adapter but for some reason the external doesn't show up. It works on my old macbook but not on this new one, doesn't even show up in the disk utilities. Do the fire wire ports have to match up in speed? Can my backup and the files be saved?
