So i have a small problem with trying to connect my 2011 13.3 MacBook Pro (i7 version) to my 32" HCT HDTV (is an ATSC +NTSC System, 1080p Input). This is my first attempt to connect my MacBook to an HDTV...

Today i bought a Belkin Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter and connected it to my MacBook and HDTV.

When I connected it, all that pops up is the Original Apple wallpaper.
I can see my dock when i scroll over it.
But none of my programs are can pull up at all.
Also, the Apple Bar up top, (Finder, File, Edit etc...) isnt showing.

-The Resolution is 1280x1080.
-I have the adapter plugged into my HDMI & Thunderbolt ports.

I thought that that'd be the only cable i'd need & that'd it'd be quick and simple...
I'm also guessing that the Mini Display Port to HDMI Adapter isn't the Cable i need?
Will i need a separate cable for sound too?
What settings do I need to configure if i need to?
How do i fix this?

If anyone can please help me out, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

Moved here to the correct forum. Does not belong in "Switcher".

Please read our Sticky post on how to connect your Mac to a TV. LINK
