I have a 13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008 MacBook. After upgrading to Mountain Lion I cannot get my mac to connect with any external video device: projector or TV. My mac can't detect the external device even when I go to "Detect Device" In System Pref. I reset the pram, In Disc Utilities I did a "repair Disk" and "Repair Disc permisions"  No luck.  I connected my wife's mac to the TV through HDMI - immediate recognition. This all started when I ugraded to mountain lion.  Any Help??

MacBook (13-inch Aluminum Late 2008), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
