    Macbook Air to Sony Bravia TV
    Hey Mac users

    I have a problem with connecting my Macbook Air to my Sony Bravia TV.

    I use a Belkin Mini DisplayPort HDMI adapter with an HDMI cable.

    Every time I connect plug my mac screen flashes blue once. The problem is that only one out of ten times my Mac screen appears on the TV screen. When it rarely succeeds it works perfectly with great picture and sound.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Sincerely Mikkel

    Note: Moved thread(s) to appropriate forum. This is surely not a "member discount" offering. Also, only one thread per question please.

    You should look at this thread:

    Post # 2, Item # 1 - setting proper resolution is important - if disconnecting and re-connecting everything does not solve the issue, then my first suspect would be that either the adapter or cable is faulty. Personally, wouldn't buy/replace until tried on another TV.
    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.

    Hello Bobtomay

    Thanks for the answer!

    I have followed your recipe. But my Mac detects my TV only one out of ten times.
    I reconnected all the cables, tried an SMC reset and turn on TV and mac in a different order. Nothing helps!

    The next step must be that I try with another television.

    Now I have tried to connect my MBA to a Samsung TV. No problems, it works the first time and every time.

    So ... My Mac works, my cable + adapter works.

    My Sony Bravia TV has 4 HDMI slots - I have tried them all with the same result. It works only one out of ten times.

    Some suggestions on how I get on?
