    Saw several threads with very inconclusive results so I figured I'd try the waters again.

    I've got a 37" LG TV, VGA connection, and a mid 2010 MBP.

    I connect, my laptop screen flashes, i can drag my mouse into the black void of where the LG should be, but still get a "no signal" error on the LG. Tried changing to several resolutions/refresh rates, not much luck yet.

    Which ones, specifically? TV's tend to support very few resolution setting. Confirm what your TV supports.

    All at 60 Hz
    800x 600
    1024 x 768
    1280x768
    1280x960
    1280x1024
    1344x1008
    1400x1050
    1600x1200
    1920x1080

    These were all resolution options given to me by my MBP. It's recognizing it as just a VGA display though, not as an LG TV - are there some drivers missing or something?

    ----------

    The only inputs I can select are the regular cable and the VGA. VGA isn't selectable unless I plug in my computer, so SOMETHING is being recognized there, but even with cycling through, no dice. Thanks though!

    ----------

    Probably less impressive - when I plug in the audio part of this VGA/Audio cable, i can play sound through the TV. Still no video though.
