Since I no longer have the mini-DVI to VGA adapter that came with my Mac, I decided to be creative and use the VGA input to my TV instead of forking out $69 on a DVI cable ("but it has gold-plated connectors!" )

So my configuration is:

Mini DVI port > DVI >VGA

using a dvi-vga adapter.

The Macbook recognized the screen, but no image was showing up.

I thought this could be an issue with the TV, so I tried with a projector and same issue. The MAcBook will recognize it by name, propose different resolutions & refresh rates, but the screen/projector itself will not find any input.

Does anyone know why?
QUOTE Thanks
