Hey everyone, I wanted to connect my Macbook to my new Vizio HDTV. I have the Apple's standard Mini DVI to VGA small cable which I've used to connect to computers before in the past. This cable has the female end which and as luck would have it (sarcasm) the Vizio TV has a female end in the back of the TV as well. I went and bought a male/male connection to hook up the "Mini DVI to VGA" cable and hook that up to the TV. Thankfully it fit perfectly. However, the TV would not display anything from the macbook. According to the TV, it seemed like nothing was connected. However, on the Macbook's end the Macbook recognized both screens; it's own and the Vizio TV's. Yet nothing on the Vizio TV. I decided to fiddle with it only on the Mac's end since the TV didn't show any recognition signs and turned on Mirroring, yet nothing happened. I find this situation very odd since I finally got the Macbook and TV to connect, even the Macbook recognized it but still nothing on the TV's end. BTW, I read the Tv's manual and it simply states to turn both the TV and computer off, connect them to each other, then turn them on...but nothing. If you know of anything that might help i'm all ears, especially since I still have these connections right now. If not, I just may go the HDMI route, but I checked Best Buy/Circuit City and the cables are too expensive. Can anyone say Recession? My TV does not have a DVI port so would need to buy an HDMI to DVI cable, then buy Apple's Mini DVI to DVI cable correct? Again, i'd rather fix the problem with the VGA stuff I have now.... I'll respond quickly.
