Has anyone purchased one of these or has experience using one? I have been trying to get it to work for the past 15 minutes with no luck. I plug in the adapter into my mini display port, connect the HDMI to it, which is also connected to the TV and follow the moshi instructions. However, I cannot find additional hardware under sound nor can I find "mirror displays" under display settings. Can anyone help?

I figured out what I was doing. It is working properly now. Thank you!

Is there a setting that you can close the lid of the MBA without the picture cutting out on the monitor/tv?

I think you may be asking about clamshell mode. (support.apple.com/kb/ht3131) I've never tried but it seems simple enough.

FWIW, I've used the Moshi adapter a few times and it's worked flawlessly. It is a bit on the pricey side, though. There are probably cheaper alternatives that do just as well.

I use clamshell mode everyday with my 15" i5 MBP connected to my Samsung 23" monitor...but when I used it with a new 13" Air at a friends connected to a 40" Samsung LCD tv, it worked for a while then I lost the audio and couldn't get it back until I disconnected the moshi and reconnected it to the Air... puzzling :confused:

You have to leave the Power Supply plugged to the MBA,... otherwise clamshell-mode won´t work,.... Hope this helps
