This goes to my TV and all I see is a black screen. Any ideas??
Is there something in system preferences that you have to change...display output or something like that?
That's all I got.
would it be because my tv is not HDTV?
Did you click the "Detect Displays" button in the Display Preferences Pane?
yeah, still no go.
Then it's probably because you need a scan converter.
Try something like this:
what model of TV is yours?
what's port on your TV did you use to connect your Mac?
I would guess your TV cannot handle either the resolution or refresh rate the system is putting out.
Try changing the resolution to 640x480x60hz. Most TVs can do that.
Obviously there is a problem with that adapter connector you're using. What is that purple connection type? You will need to connect that Apple adapter to a VGA connector on your TV for that to work.
Otherwise yeah you gotta get the other Apple S-Video/RCA adapter (which I've used on my TV and works fine).
