    I was so excited to start watching Netflix on my TV with my new DVI to video adapter and had my Mac screen showing up on the TV...only to find that Netflix doesn't currently support Mac. So I thought I was smart and switched over to XP, only to find that it's not recognizing the cable as being connected or showing up on the TV. Am I missing something? Thanks so much for the help. I couldn't find that this was posted on before, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Works great with VMware. I have never tried it with bootcamp, but would not be surprised it it didn't work.

    Well I've had the same problem, in that it would appear that Boot Camp doesn't support video output. I can mirror my Macbook to my TV fine on OSX, but switch to bootcamp and windows and it doesn't work.

    3rd party UltraMon works

    I use this program to mirror an iMac to project on a display. It mirrors the external monitor out on while booted in Windows XP. It is a bit steep at $40, but it does work pretty well
