    Lg tv 42" pt353
    macbook pro os x version 10.6.7, mini hdmi.
    Its all plugged in but still getting no signal.
    When I plug it in, the screen turns blue, and it starts to load on the tv, but then it stop there. And it doesn't "gather windows" either.
    is there anything I can do?

    what connector are you using? what MB model is it?

    No Apple computers (as far as Im aware) use a mini-HDMI connector.

    older models use mini DVI and newer ones use Mini Display Port.

    What does that mean? Can you move the cursor across to the TV screen?

    And it doesn't "gather windows" either.

    Have you opened System Preferences - Displays - and tried both changing the resolution for the TV - not your monitor - and also headed for the Appearance tab and tried both checking and unchecking the Mirror displays option?
    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.
