    I want to show a PowerPoint(PP) presentation on a TV.
    I have connected my MacBook Pro to 3 different TVs, i.e. Plasma, LCD and a 15 year old 32" Sony.
    I used the DVI to VGA adapter that came with the MacBook and then a VGA to S-Video/video adapter. I also went VGA to VGA on the LCD.
    I only get the MacBook DeskTop picture on any of TV's, even when I have the PP presentation on the Macbook screen.
    Can someone tell me what I need to do to get the PP pictures on any of the TV's ?

    System Preferences > Displays >> Arrangement >>> select "Mirror Displays"

    Or drag the window you want on the TV to the TV, as the image you see on the TV is an extended Desktop.
