Mini-DVI to Video Problem

I bought the Dynex version of the mini-dvi to video adapter to watch videos on my TV, none of my TV's have VGA, DVI or HDMI. I hooked it all up and got unusable signal on one of my TV's which is a 26", on my other TV which is 20" and was able to get a blurry black and white image with duplicates of the screen, but that was on the lowest resolution. I tested the port with a VGA adapter I got with my Macbook (Early 2008 Black Macbook) and never used, it worked, but that was on a regular monitor. I know its not the port now. It should be able to display on the TV's especially the small one. Any of yall got an idea?

Problem solved, After reading the Dynex reviews at seems 99% of them don't work. Took it back and got a refund. Picked one up from Mac Authority and it worked flawlessy the first time.

Save yourself some time and spend the extra 3 dollars for the Apple one.

I just got a set of mini dvi to vga cables from amazon, as well as a vga to s-video converter. I think I might be having the same problem, has anybody used these ones? I get some flickering on my tv, but that's about it.
