    Unable to connect New MB Pro to Sony HDTV

    I am trying to connect my new MB Pro to Sony KDL 46XBR6 using the Mini Display Port using a Mini-Display Adapter to DVi and then a DVI to HDMI Cable. The screen is blank and when I open up System Preferences-->Displays and click on 'Detect Display' nothing happens. I do not even see the option to Mirror Displays. What am I doing wrong ? My old MB Pro worked perfectly with just a DVI to HDMI Cable.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Did you check to make sure that your HDTV was on an available HDMI input? Just for starters...

    You can make some people happy some of the time, but you can never make a PC enthusiast understand the brilliance of the Macintosh OS. Until you put it in front of them.

    Sounds similar to my problem. I can get my macbook to even register it is a sony tv, but it won't display anything. After researching on the net a bit, seems like something that just "happens". Oh well
