    Connecting to Samsung HDTV
    I have recently purchased an HDTV and want to connect it to either my iMac or macbook.. my husband went to the store and after speaking to 4 people got a mini dvi-vga converter, a vga cable and an audio cable and they said that would work.
    What happens is only my background shows up on the tv screen when I try it on either computer (no other windows i have open show) Am I missing a step?

    go to sys pref / display / arrangement and click the mirror displays and then every thing on your Mac will be on the tv.

    and for all your questions on this set up here is a great guide:
