    Technical Details

    Are you using a Male-to-Male HDMI cable, like I bolded in the Technical Details?

    Have you selected the right channel on the TV?

    ok i was doing everything right except i was forcing the computer to use intel integrated gfx with gfxstatus. I switched to nvidia 330 m and that was it.

    the heat of the cpu went up to 150F though.

    I am having the same problem as you but have a late 09 MPB with a 55' Samsung LED.

    How did you force the MBP to switch to nvidia 330m?

    Then you don't have the 3330M either. You have the 9400M.

    What is your problem exactly and what kind of cables are involved and have you taken a look at the following guide?

    I can't connect to my 55' Samsung LED via the MDP-> HDMI route. My mbp detects the TV, but the TV doesn't detect the signal.
