    Hi. I just got a Display Port to HDMI adapter, but can't get it to work. When I plugg in the adapter and the HDMI cable to the TV, a Sharp Aquos, the computer only flicks a blue screen for a second, and then back to normal, not projecting on the TV. I've tried "everything", restaring the computer with the cable plugged in, restaring the TV, different HDMI cables, searching for displays... yeah I think you get it. It's like the TV cant recognize the signal. And the TV is kind of newish, so I'm getting really frustrated here.

    Anyone that had this problem? If you had, how did you get this to work? Thanks...

    Hmmm ... I'm having the same issue. MBPro with an HDMI adapter connected to the mini DP and a Sharp Aquos LCD TV. This is the adapter I'm using

    It works fine with my LG and Samsung LCD televisions, but not with the Sharp Aquos for some reason. I can also display the contents of my PC laptops on the Sharp Aquos, so I know the HDMI ports are good.

    I'm wondering if anyone has come up with a solution (or explanation as to why it doesn't work) since the original message was posted?
