    I have a similar setup with a MacPro but using OS 10.6 and a Sony TV. So, I am not sure whether 10.5 supports mDVI to HDMI.

    Otherwise a few simple questions to make sure we are on the right track because in 10.6 it works out of he box:

    1) Is your TV turned on?
    2) Is the HDMI port on your TV enabled (Sony TVs have to option to disable ports)
    3) Does the cable have the right HDMI specs for your TV?
    4) Which iMac model do you have?
