    I am trying ot figure out why this is happening.

    I have been watching tv series on my mac through my TV using front row and on some of the video's after 5 minutes the tv goes black and says it is trying to find a connection and then says no connection. One thing that makes it odd it only does it on some of the video's not all. Is it just the video's or is there something on the tv i can do?

    Thanks

    Is your screensaver or sleep setting set to kick in at 5 min?

    Caffeine

    Try Caffeine -- it allows you to keep your Mac awake with a single click.

    The computer is not going to sleep or screen saver. The audio is still playing through the sound system i have plugged in separate from the tv.

    I'm stumped. The only thing I can think of is the display going to sleep ... either that or some kind of DRM protection kicking in ...
