    I'm not the only one!

    MBP 15.5(late 2009),Monoprice, JVC 32" lcd tv

    The connection worked just fine for about three months then suddenly started to do the "static glitch" or give me the black screen. Now it's doing it all the time. I've:
    -changed the hdmi cable (and brand)
    -bought a NEW samsung tv to test it with that (it worked for two minutes then completely went, back at store)
    -turned on and/or off any setting that have to do with hdmi or video graphics
    -changed resolution settings to 720p,1080p and 1080i.

    I also spoke to an apple rep. who claimed that he hasn't heard of this problem from anyone else...?!?!?!

    Any help would be HELPful. Thanks.

    I have a Late 2009 Mac Mini, as well as mid-2009 13" Macbook Pro. When I run video through a DP to HDMI convertor (Belkin), I cannot see the menu bar, and part of the dock is hidden also.

    In the settings, the only resolution choices I have are 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. The thing is, when I use the mini dvi to dvi on the mini, I have no problems. I want to use with tv in living room, but it only has HDMI, no DVI. Anyone else had this problem?

    this problem that you have is the OVERSCAN of the TV

    if your tv has the option to turn OFF overscan, try to do that.

    if not, the only option that you have is to download a program
    named DisplayX that can try different resolutions to avoid losing
    the menu bar and the dock.

    hope this can help u!

    THANKS.. to the person that mentioned Belkin.

    My iMac 27" 3.06 (OS X 10.6) wasn't working with my Monster HDMI cable, no matter what I tried (1 hour).

    I tried a 6' Belkin cable (v1.3) and PRESTO !!!!!!!

    I'm so relieved. The non-Apple mini display/hdmi adapter I bought on Amazon worked with the Belkin after I clicked Detect Display.

    Hope this helps somebody else.

    Best wishes!!!

    Not sure if this has been mentioned, but:

    I have a new Early 2010 MacBook Pro, I'm using a Mini(or is it Micro) DVI to HDMI (from Cablesson) to connect my 15" MacBook Pro to a 22" LG TV.

    I also get both the no signal and/or static glitchs that appear when using the adapter.
    After doing some tests, the issue seems to stem from the NVIDIA Optimus graphics switching that the new MacBook Pro's have (Mine has the 330GT 256mb card), and I have tried all the other fixes which fail to work.

    I am using a free app called gfxCardStatus by which allows you to override the graphics settings to force the machine to use either the Intel or nvidia graphics card.

    With all this laid out, I found that by plugging in the adapter which would result in "No Signal" appearing on my TV, I could use gfxCardStatus to switch between graphics card and it would force OSX to properly re-detect the displays and my DISPLAY OUT WORKS.

    The nvidia optimus switching seems to be the cause of this problem, as rebooting the MBP with the hdmi adapter would also cause it to start working, but for a restart free method try gfxCardStatus

    *I am not in anyway associated with gfxCardStatus or, just wanted to point that out*

    Did any of this really ever get solved? I have a 27" imac quadcore i7, and am running a monoprice MDP to a 15' hdmi to my Panny projector (ptae4000u). First day it worked fine. Now, I get the static blinking red screen thing. I tried pretty much everything above that didn't require adding new equipment or replacing a graphics card. Is there really a solution to this?

    I have the same problem as well. MBP 13" Late 2009. I use the Mini-Display->HDMI adapter. It worked fine for a couple a months but suddenly it stopped working. This problem occurs both when trying to connect to my tv (samsung hdtv) and my computer screen (also samsung). I guess it's not a hardware error...Apple really need to handle this..
  • cqualls Level 1 (0 points)
    Everything was working fine for me until several months ago when I updated my software. It was as a result of a software update that my MDP to HDMI to my Samsung TV stopped working. I really hope apple is working on a fix for this. Its kind of annoying not to be able to use my TV to watch movies. Thats why I bought the cable after all... Seems like it should be a relatively easy fix...

    Hi. How did you resolve this problem where your tv only showed the desktop (no icons)? I have the same problem. Please help.
  • Gaber76 Level 1 (0 points)
    I have the same problem on one external display setup but not another.

    Setup: MBP 17" Core i7, Monoprice MiniDisplay to HDMI cable to a Viewsonic VX2435wm. the screen goes dark randomly, sometimes comes back normally, somtimes full of static and then goes to no singal mode. Sometimes it resolves itself, someimtes I have to disconnect/reconnect the dsiaply cable to bring it back. Very annoying when trying to get some work done.

    It was having similar problems with a MDP to DVI adapter + DVI to HDMI cable setup I was using before I got the single cable (The only options on this display are VGA and HDMI). I was getting more pink screens then, though... So I thought it was probably because of too many adapter steps, but it still does it the same with the single cable solution.

    When I use MDP to DVI adapter (Monoprice) at home with my Dell Ultraharp 22 display, I never have the problem...

    I picked up the mini displayport --> hdmi adapter and am stuck. I have my tv hooked up and it is currently displaying the mac background of space/stars/aurora etc but that's it. It's not displaying my current background pic and everything that I'm doing on the macbook it is not being shown on the TV... its just the background of the stars and stuff. Can someone tell me what the **** I need to do to make the tv mirror what im doin?

    Just got an mini display-port to hdmi adapter from hongkong for 99 cents on eb@y works like a charm on samsung 32" first time and every time. Guessing its just luck or the 2010 macbooks don't have this issue.

  • SilvrSable Level 1 (0 points)
    I just bought my mini display port to HDMI cables and I tried plugging it in. I'm having a similar problem to the people here.

    My mac screen flashes blue, but then the hdmi input channel says "no signal".

    When I go under displays in preferences and detect displays, the mac doesnt detect anything.

    What can i do?
