I purchased a thunderbolt to HDMI cable but when I use it I can only see some items on the TV, such as the screensaver.

Some other things come up but the same screen as on the MAC does not show on the TV. For instance DVDs show a blank background scene but not the video.

I tried to change some of the display settings but nothing worked.

How do I get it to do so?

Check out Post # 2 - Item # 3 and see if that gets you headed in the right direction.

Connecting your Mac to your 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.
