Question

HDMI vs MacBook Pro

by jbhassoc / June 3, 2011 11:31 AM PDT

I have two samsung tv's - 52A650 and 55B7000. The output from a MacBook Pro with a mini display port to HDMI adapter works perfectly when plugged into any HDMI input on the 52A650 but will not work when plugged into any HDMI input on the 55B7000. The 7000 says 'no signal' while the MacBook Pro shows the Samsung is detected properly. I have seen lots of questions posted about this but never an explanation as to the cause or a workable solution. The 7000 software is up to date.

Can you share a link to the mini to HDMI adapter you used?

"you can also set your displays to extend the desktop, so a different
section of your desktop is shown on each display. You can change this
setting in the Arrangement pane of Displays preferences."

I can't see what you've chosen for the settings in the Arrangement pane.

On the 55B7000 The macBook pro 'Detect Displays' shows
Color LCD
1280x800
Samsung
1080p (television)
1080i (television)
but none are checked.

When the macbook pro is connected to my 52A650 I get a fantastic picture
If I mirror the display' the the macbook shows
Color LCD
1280x800
Samsung
x1600x900 60 hz (ntsc television) -- this is checked
1080i (television)
1080p (television)
If I don't mirror the display
Samsung
1080p (television)
1080i (television)
x1080p (television) -- this is checked

ON the 7000 I tried different HDMI inputs and renaming them. Nothing helped. Shows 'no signal'.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
