    Has anyone tried hooking up a Macbook to a LG HDTV (720p)
    I recently purchased a 32" LG HDTV (720p) at a very good sale price, however I've been hearing it's not very compatible with the macbooks mini-dvi output. Has anyone tried this and experienced any problems? P.S. My Macbook is a late 2008 Version 10.5.7 Leopard OSX

    Specs:
    17" MacBook Pro, 2.8GHZ, 4GB DDR3
    If you're LG has an HDMI input open, use that.

    I used the Belkin DVI to HDMI adapter along with the mini-DVI to DVI cable and it worked wonderfully with one caveat: You had to adjust some settings on the TV.

    I was using a Sony, so I won't bore you with what details they are.

    Those are the cables I plan on using, however I'm more concerned about this because it's an LG which has a bad rep for compatibility with MBs

    Care to explain by bad compatibilty?

    Some people have mentioned how the screen and the dock are cut off, but on my TV it was a settings adjustment.

    I spoke with LG tech support in Canada. They said they do not support Apple computers.

    I tried all resolutions, but it only changes the laptop monitors resolution as the external display isn't even recognized. F7 did nothing either.

    I guess that means the probably don't support nVidia?
