I have a 13" Macbook with Snow Leopard. I have a mini DVI cable to HDMI dongle and then an HDMI cable going from that to my TV. I'm on the right input (HDMI3) but my laptop screen isn't showing up on my TV.

It just has a blank blue screen. No desktop icons or anything. However, if I go to System Preferences -> Displays, the display window does show up on my TV showing all the resolutions.

Any idea how to make this work and get my laptop screen to be duplicated on my TV? Thanks.

Matt

not able to see full display on my sony bravia hd 1080p

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
