    Hey Guys,

    I've connected my Macbook to my Samsung TV via HDMI and it works great!

    I've been using the TV for it's speakers and screensaver so I'd like to be able to put on iTunes and have my slideshow play on the TV while I have guests over.

    It works great, but if I don't touch the macbook for 20 minutes, the signal to the TV cuts out. The Macbook isn't going to sleep, because I've adjusted those settings accordingly. I feel like the TV is stopping the connection for some reason. As soon as I touch my macbook, it resumes playing and everything.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks,

    I think I just figured it out. I checked the HDMI 1 settings on my TV and it had an auto-turn off option which was on YES. Turned it to NO.

    Will report back in 20 minutes to see :)

    It did it again but I figured it out.

    I had my display going to sleep after 15 minutes because I figured my display could sleep as long as my audio kept going. But I then realized that since the display and audio were connected to the TV, it would sleep the TV too which would cut the audio!

    Thanks anyway if anyone ever even read this!
