    I just bought a cord(mini DVI to VGA) that connects my macbook to a VGA cable
    and I even bought a brand new VGA cable as well to connect my Macbook to my tv.
    My tv is a iSymphony
    well I set it up on the channel that shows the VGA connection
    and it only shows a purple screen saver
    and nothing else

    I tried turning my tv on first
    then my macbook
    so it could detect it
    and it will not show anything else but the purple screen saver
    I even unplug the cable from my macbook
    and plugged it back in and it did not work

    if anyone understand my rant and question please help me!.:confused:
