Hooking up my mac to the TV
i have the cords in order to hook up my mac to the TV but when i hook it up it looks like outer space on my TV even though my mac isnt showing it. So i have no clue what is going on any help?

Do you need to change the video input? Or possibly the channel? My guess is the video input though.

i tried changing the video input and putting it on channel 3,4 and all it shows is like redish blueish sky

Sounds like your initial problem was that you were seeing the "extended" desktop and not a "mirror" of your own desktop; apparently you got that worked out.

Yes, you'll need a second cable to output from the headphone jack of your Mac to the sound input of your TV if you want audio as well.
