After you have made sure you've change d the TV to the correct input:

First thing to do is to unplug everything... adapter(s) and cable and plug them all back in, even if you know the connections are good.

Next thing I'd try would be to use the 'Detect Displays' button in System Preferences - Displays.

Some TVs require that they be turned on in a specific order... this is so that they pass the EDID info properly... usually it's the TV then the computer... have seen others want the computer, then the TV. Personally, I usually connect the cable with both up and running with high success.

Give those a try while I check the manual out.
Thank you! I also saw with the adapter that the sound has to be set for USB output for the adapter to work properly.
