    I have a MacBook Pro and a Magnavox HD TV. I have a mini displayport to HDMI cord. I also have a HDMI to VGA cord. My TV does not have HDMI, it has the VGA (PC IN) port, which is why I bought those cords. When I connect everything, and put my TV's input as PC, it says "No video input". Am I doing something wrong? How do I connect my Mac to my TV?

    You should use an MDP to VGA adapter instead of two adapters.

    You bought an adapter for an adapter? Why not just buy the correct adapter for your needs, and then the VGA cord?

    If you're within the return policy for the adapters, return them and get the correct one if you're able. The two you have are useless to you.
