    I've connected my Mac to my TV and it plays video fine while in Mac OSX. However, when I run windows via bootcamp, the monitor video is fine but the signal is all jarbled when going to the TV. I know its sending it because I see a very distorted version of my desktop on the TV but it's impossible to make out. I've heard there are adapter problems. Is this something I have to live with? Help!

    How can you expect someone to help you if there are no specifics.

    What Mac?
    Which graphics card?
    What kind of driver in bootcamp
    Which Windows version?
    Which kind of graphics port between Mac and TV?

    Sorry buddy-new to the whole forums thing.

    -iMac (2007 version)
    -Not sure what my bootcamp driver is but I installed the drivers from the Jaguar DVD
    -Windows XP
    -I'm using the Apple Mini-DVI to Video Adapter with an s-video cable to my TV

    I downloaded all the latest drivers for my bootcamp version from ATI last nite and I can see the screen on the TV but it's black and white, upside down and completely garbled. Any help is appreciated here. Thanks!
