    MacBook > mini-dvi > dvi > hdmi > HDTV
    Evening All,

    I've been trying for a good hour or so now to try and make the above combination to work.

    Every time I click "Detect Displays" nothing happens and the picture still stays the same on my tv. It just says "No Signal".

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Karl

    I've tried both, when I click on "Detect Displays" nothing happens.

    maybe you should try pushing the mini dvi adapter into the macbook with a little bit more force. i'm running the same set up and thats what i did to get it to display.

    What display settings do you have setup for the mini-DVI port? Resolution and refresh rate please?

    I am having the same problem
    I have a mini dvi to HDMI cable and an HDMI cable connecting this to my HDTV. I have tried to get the tv to recognize my 2009 macbook but I can't get it to work. I have tried multiply resolutions. The refresh rate is at 60 Hz

    I have also tried connecting it to another HDTV but can't get it to work. Any suggestions?
