now i know theres been a couple of threads about this topic of connecting MBP to HDTV...and i did create one awhile back about similar topic. But anywho when i plugged it in my old TV on the MBP it detect it but showed nothing on the TV....i figured it was the TV (phillips HDTV plasma) which was about 2 years old.

but i recently bought a brand new Sony Bravia KDL-52VL150 LCD TV and yet when i plug in the adapter (mini-HDMI) it doesnt detect it nor does it show anything on the TV... getting really frustrated... NEED INTENSE ONE-ONE help please... PM me or something any help with be greatly appreciated...

(PS i tried youtubing it and seems everyone showing how to do it is plug and play...but i vaguely remember someone saying that you cant do it or something im not sure...)

Would suggest you press the 'Display' button on your sony remote to change it to the input you have plugged the MBP into.

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.

This may sound stupid, but did you try to power off the mac, turn on the TV, hook in the cables then power on? For it to plug and play it has to be connected while off then powered on.

Where did you get the mini-HDMI adapter? I need one for doing the same thing.
