Hi! I want to connect my Powerbook to my television so that the telvision screen displays the quicktime movie I'm playing on my powerbook. I used the little PB to Video cable that came with my 15" AL PB, connect it to a video cable, connect that to the television, and the background of my desktop shows but no icons, windows, menus, or anything else. Now it gets stranger: When I open up System Preferences, then click on Display, the Display window shows on the television! But it's the Display window from OS 9, *not* OS X. I started up OS 9 and opened programs in it, but those didn't show up. But when I opened Moniter preferences in OS 9, that showed up! I tried this on three different tv's and two projectors. Anyone know why this would be happening? Unfortunately for me, I planned an event around being able to show this .mov movie on a television screen -- an event that will draw 20-40 people! My other option is to convert the .mov to MPEG2? and then burn it to a DVD and play the DVD in a regular DVD player, but someone told me that will make the quality of the movie horrible. Also, I don't know for the life of me how to convert the .mov to a MPEG2 in iDVD -- the billowing curtains kind of confuse me.
