I have from being a diehard Windows user given mac chance by getting a (cheap) late 2008 15" macbook pro and have been very happy until I recently tried to connect it to the TV through a 3rd party hdmi adapter I bought on Amazon. I can't get it to work. The mbp screen flashes blue for a second, and then returns, nothing happens after this point. I've tried all settings and combinations and it does not work. I have read that I am not the only one with the problem with this particular model. It is a late 2008 15 "unibody macbook pro. Is there one with the same setup that has found a working solution? My TV has HDMI and VGA and I've tried with 3 different tvs.
