    hi guys, quick question. im in germany and am hooking up to an lcd flatpanel tv. using the hdmi thunderbolt adapter. im not sure if its an ntsc/PAL thing (i dont think that applies to digital panels though) but im not getting any picture and its hard finding answers. the mbp was bought in the states. is there some kind of conversion setting or maybe i have a bad cable. When i switch the tv input to hdmi, the mbp goes blue like normal then just comes back, with no picture on the tv. so theyre talking to each other, just not getting a signal through.

    thanks so much for the help, ive been googling but cant find any answers.
