    Hey macrumors! I'm having some issues hooking up my macbook to my tv. I am using a mini dvi to dvi, and then I am using a dvi to hdmi cable to hook up to my tv. I have hooked it up with no problems and the apple mini dvi to dvi fits perfectly. When I select my display settings on my computer, and I click "Detect Devices" it comes up with no problems and it recognizes the tv. I then go to my tv and try to select HDMI but I can't, it just won't let me. It only gives me choices of TV, Cable, and DVD. Basically, I believe the tv will not recognize the HDMI cable even though my macbook does. I did a little research and looked at my TV manual. Inside of it, it says "The HDMI hookup is not intended to be used with personal computers." So basically, is there anything I can do to be able to use my macbook onto my TV? Thanks a bunch, in advance!
