I am trying to connect my Macbook Pro to a Philips 27PT5445/37 television via a DVI to Compnent(RGB), however my screen tears severely. I have tried virtually every resolution/refresh rate combination, with no sign of improvement. Any suggestions?

Does your Phillips have a DVI input or HDMI that you can try? What you're describing (tearing) is a lack of a proper sync signal.

Regards.

unfortunately is it strictly rgb and a/v. I've also tried the cable in two other televisions with the same effect. I have also tried a similar cable (VGA to rgb with a VGA/DVI adaptor) with the same effect. I am beginning to wonder if it is a problem with my actual DVI output on my MBP, however i have successfully used external monitors with VGA/DVI adaptor.

What could be the source of the lack of signal?


EDIT:

After doing a little research, I have found that some computer video cards do not support output to component video. I am searching a bit more about my video card but I have found nothing yet on mine specifically. Ill try and update as I find more.
