Samsung LED Series 6 + Macbook Pro 13' = No picture.

by bully_worm / July 6, 2010 9:30 AM PDT

I'm using a Minidisplay port to HDMI to connect to the TV.

My MBP detects the TV but my TV does not detect my MBP.

Someone shed some light here please!

I've gone into System Preference, clicked Mirror Display, etc etc. I've fooled around with the Refresh Rate and all that. No good.

The thing is, I also have a 32' LCD Samsung upstairs that I can connect to easily. The TV detects is instantly and I can output 1080p, etc etc without a problem.

Samsung, help!

bully_worm,

Sorry for missing your post the first time around.

What's the model number of your TV?

bully_worm,

You'll want to use HDMI-1 as your port (to take advantage of the audio, if you desire, but HDMI-1 would be my recommendation).

Edit the name of the port from "----" to "PC" as instructed on page 13. You might also try DVI-PC or DVI-Devices and set your native resolution as the resolution of the panel. (If the resolution isn't supported, it will give you a "Mode Not Supported" message).

Also, make sure your overscan is at 0%.

Keep me posted.

Unfortunately, I don't have a dvi-pc cable. And yes, I have tried using the first HDMI port and renaming it "PC".

One question though, how do I enabled "overscan 0%" on the Samsung?
