Found the manual.

Next question - is the computer recognizing that the TV is connected?

Go to System Preferences - Displays - if it is recognizing the TV - there are two different things you may see.
First the MBP screen will be called 'Color LCD' at the top.

I don't remember how the system comes configured out of the box.
If the configuration is for a mirrored setup (I'm hoping it is), there will be 2 separate boxes - one for the Color LCD and a 2nd one for the TV. You may have to move one to see the other one behind it. If this is the case, go to the box for the TV and set the resoution for it at 1024 x 768. This is the max the TV accepts from the DVI port. The resolutions it supports are on pg 20 of the manual. Dig out the manual as it also lists the frequencies it supports and set those.

edit: Just a note: If in display preferences, it is not set to mirrored - each of the individual display boxes will be seen only on the screen that it controls. Am hoping this is not the case if one of the methods of turning on the devices did not work for you.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
