    Hi All,

    What a great place! I'm wondering if anyone has a solution to connecting a mini to the above TV.

    I have the same TV in 32 inches and use a mini to HDMI cable that works perfectly. For some reason, the 40 inch TV says 'no signal' when I try to hook it up the same way. I've tried all the HDMI ports...including ones that work with other devices.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks a bunch!

    Try this when the 40" is connected;

    System Preferences-> Displays-> Detect Displays and then see what happens

    Unfortunately I can't see anything when I hook up the 40. I wonder if I picked a different resolution from system preferences before I disconnect the mini from the 32 and hook it up to the 40?

    try booting into safe mode (hold the shift key during bootup) and see if anything shows up.
