    The video below this text speaks for itself. Connected my MBP to every HDMI port, bought a new mini display-hdmi converter, tried different hdmi cables. Samsung even switched the motherboard. Still, the problems are there.

    The thing is, I don't experience these problems with my friends PC, or my own PS3. Any thoughts? Could it be the minidisplay port thats fried? I tried to connect my MBP to my parents Samsung, a similar but better model, and it worked perfectly fine.

    It seems like the only thing not working is putting my MBP and TV together, but all parts work individually... :eek:

    You mean the flickering? My only guess would berth you're pushing a resolution that you tv can't support. Doubtful. Or perhaps a refresh rate that it can't.

    Mine works just fine with my new 75" Samsung D9500 Smart TV.

    Fortunately I have a close personal friend in Korea that facilitated the purchase & delivery, since they're not available in the US yet.

    In retrospect it also works well with the old 60" Samsung I have in another room, I'm not sure why yours doesn't.

    Perhaps someone will come along with some help for you.

    Good Luck
