    You're going to need to tell us which TV you have and what inputs it provides. Also please read through the posts above yours which will likely answer your questions.

    I "assume" you mean inputs, not outputs, since you want video coming "in" to the TV?

    You would do well to read the very first post.
    The next question is where do you want the sound?

    And it would be better to provide the brand and model of TV you have.

    Am assuming you mean you have selected the HDMI input on the TV corresponding to the input the Mac is connected to?

    What TV is this - make and model?

    Per Sony, you need to use the HDMI 1 port - you'll definitely have to use that port if you want to get the audio with the video on the TV.

    Only thing from there is to work through the troubleshooting steps back in post # 2.
    I did not find any settings that you would need to adjust on the Sony.

    After that, my first question would be where did you get the adapter. That is the item most often not working.

    One more thing - do you have the Mac plugged in to power? Won't work on battery power.

    Iv'e tried all the troubleshooting step in post #2 and it stills not working. I have connected my HDMI in port 1. I bought this adaptor online at http://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B001...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    from this company : http://www.amazon.ca/gp/browse.html?...A1A4WDMXI70UAF

    Also, I can't see the mirroring option. My macbook is connected to power.

    20% of the reviews for that adapter say it didn't work

    You could try moving the HDMI cable up/down/around where it attaches to the adapter and see if you can get the picture to come up if you hold it just right.

    I'd send it back and try a different adapter not the cheapest one you can find.
    With adapters, would suggest sticking with some of the name brands - not necessarily the most expensive - ones available on Amazon here in the US would be Monoprice, Griffin, Belkin, Startech, Cables Unlimited. Check to see if one of them have a mini-DVI to HDMI cable instead of using adapter + cable.

    Normal - Your Mac screen is going to go blue for a couple seconds when it detects and attempts to connect to another monitor.

    Maybe someone can help guide towards what I need to connect my MBP to a new flatscreen I have bought. It is my first flatscreen ever (I know I am behind the times...just subsided on my grandmother's tv which is about 25 years old) and I have only once connected my MBP to a projector. Now I am in our new summer home and want to watch Netflix on the flatscreen.

    Here are the details:
    New Philips 3000 series Slim LED TV (site with manual) bought in Estonia
    MBP from late 2008. Mactracker shows that my display port is 1 - Mini DisplayPort (VGA, DVI, or dual-link DVI with adapter)
    15" MBP, 2.4 GHz, 8 GB RAM, OSX 10.8.3
    iPod Classic (7th generation)
    iPad Mini, 64GB Cellular (1st generation), iOS 6.0.2
    iPhone 5

    Just to make sure, is this MBP
    a: 5,1 - A1286
    or
    b: 4,1 - A1260
