    I just bought an Apple "Mini DVI To Video Adapter" from micro center and my TV doesnt seem to read it at all? So far I have done this.

    1 Opened Mini DVI adapter carefully without breaking it
    2 Plugged into my macbooks mini DVI port
    3 Plugged a standard S video cable from my macbook to my TV
    4 Opened up the correct video output on my tv
    5 Got no signal on the correct input : (
    6 Jiggled the adapter around and my macbooks screen went blue for a second
    7 nothing on the TV still
    8 Got frustrated and posted a forum thread about it

    What am I doing wrong can someone please help me!

    Is your system recognizing the output? System preferences > displays.

    In addition to jackiecanev2's comment, pressing the button "Detect Displays" when "System Preferences" is opened with "Displays" selected wouldn't hurt.
