Ok guys I bought the external monitor adapter yesterday and was able to mirror the image on my mac with no problem. I open front row with the laptop open and put on a video in front row.....everything works fine. Now if I have my macbook closed I get problems. With the mac closed I open front row with the remote and everything but the videos work. I hear them playing on the mac but its black on the screen. If the lid on the macbook is open I have no problems...what gives?
