    I'm trying to connect my MacBook Pro (late 2011) running Mavericks to my Sony Bravia television like so: MBP thunderbolt port -> Mini DisplayPort cable -> HDMI cable -> TV HDMI 1 port.

    However, I'm not getting any picture or sound on the television. Neither device has recognised the other.

    Have I missed something out?

    Have you set the TVs input mode to the HDMI port you're using?

    I'm on the HDMI 'channel' if that's what you mean?

    On your remote there is a button called "Input." Press that to choose the input to which you have the computer connected. It is not called "channel" on mine.

    Its simple on my Bravia, plug HDMI cable to adapter, plug adapter into Mac, select HDMI input on the remote....nothing else to do IIRC.
