Unfortunately I have misplaced the TV manual (oops!) but there are several "input" modes, one of which is "HDMI"... but nothing happening!
It is a Grundig: Elegance.
Are there any display settings which may need changing on my MacBook?

I have done so, and it detects three displays with "television" in brackets. I also get the "blue flash" mentioned in other threads relating to this problem. However, after clicking each of these displays, none of them come up on the television itself.
Re: operating system, I think I have Snow Leopard.
Try changing your resolution from display preferences so that it matches to your tv.
You must start your tv and mac at same time.
You must plug dvi cable before starting anything i.e. when both tv and mac are switch off.
I think you have macbook 2008. If you install xcode, you can find connecting to external display file in there.
Its a long process although.
There you will get version no. 10.5._ or 10.6._.
If nothing works try 'mini dvi to hdmi' connector at genius bar or apple centre.
I have read wikipedia about apple mini dvi-
- Apple's Mini-DVI to DVI-D cable does not carry the analog signal coming from the mini-DVI port on the Apple computer. This means that it is not possible to use this cable with an inexpensive DVI-to-VGA adapter for VGA output; Apple's mini-DVI to VGA cable must be used instead. This could be avoided if Apple provided a mini-DVI to DVI-I cable. The purpose of DVI-I is to ensure universal compatibility.
- The Apple mini-DVI to DVI-D cable's package shows a DVI-I figure instead of DVI-D and does not specify that it comes with only DVI-D.
As Mini-DVI is pin-compatible with DVI, it supports both DVI and VGA through adapters. However, since Apple has moved on to Mini Displayport, there has been a scarcity of available options for users looking to connect to Displayport displays, such as Apple's own Cinema Display."
