    Macbook Pro 12 to HD TV, screen is black.
    Hi there guys,

    My girlfriend has a Macbook Pro 12 and a Vizio HDTV. I bought here a mini display port to hdmi adapter and an hdmi cable. When we plug it in the macbook pro screen goes blue, and the vizio recognizes that there is a signal. The TV will just turn black and the Macbook will go back to normal. I am a windows guy so this is where I get confused. I went through system preferences just like I read in other posts and then to displays. I hit detect displays and both showed up. However, I then clicked Mirror Displays so that I could see the Macbook screen pop up on the TV but nothing changed. I tried the tv on my laptop at different resolutions using the same HDMI cable and it worked fine. This is probably something really easy and I am just missing it so I apologize in advance for not being able to figure it out myself. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd suggest the display port to HDMI adapter is faulty.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
