Dear All,

I have a MacBook Pro (late 2006 specificiation) with a DVI output port. I want to connect it to my SONY WEGA KV36HS500, which is an HD TV (CRT, however). I have a DVI-D cable that connects both. I have the TV switched to the appropriate input.

All I get is a blank screen on my TV. My MacBook Pro does not detect the TV, even when I go to Detect screen. Can anyone please give me some suggestions? I'm ready to pull out my hair. I have Tiger (10.4.11), all updated with recent patches. Video card is ATI Mobility Radeon 1600 (256MB).

Thanks for any help you can provide.
QUOTE Thanks
