    Hey, mdp means mini display port. You know the moshi adapter you have? the place where it plugs into your mac is the mini display port (moshi didnt work for me either btw). I tried several adapters but nothing worked consistently. What worked for me was a mini display port to hdmi CABLE which I got from NEET for only a couple pounds (uk) . So for over a year now ive had no issues with it, can connect to anything and everything that the adapters didnt work on. Give it a go and stop messin with the tv you might damage it.

     

    I checked on amazon.com and i couldnt find the neet cable although im sure with more searching you can find it, but here is something you should get

    http://www.amazon.com/HDE®-Mini-Display-Adapter-Cable/dp/B009K62HQ0/ref=sr_1_1?i e=UTF8&qid=1378716300&sr=8-1&keywords=mini+displayport+to+hdmi

    so you are saying its just the CABLE!!!??? ALl I need is a new CABLE from NEET? And by the way my MDP (The moshi moshi one) is the only one that has MDP plug on the side on which it connects to the MAcBook PRo on the other its just HDMI and TV has HDMI is I am not using MDP to HDMI cable I am using HDMI to HDMI cable, dang it clear as mud huh? I really find it very hard to believe because I tried like 3 cables. One of which was a brand new one I was saving for later but had to open it to see if it would work but didn't.

  • Vic-zx Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    Oh I see you have the macbook with the hdmi socket too. Yeh it sounds really annoying for you. My mac only has the mini display port connection. Why dont you give it a try? the cable is quite cheap and you could probably pick one up quick and try it. It doesnt necessarily need to be by NEET, just any mdp to hdmi cable that has high ratings.

     

    Have you taken your mac into the apple store and asked them to look at it? I did that with mine twice, the first time it worked in the store then i went home and it didnt work, the second time they ran a diagnostic and found nothing wrong and suggested me to get a new adapter, three adapters later nothing worked and i came accross the millions of posts by ppl with the same issue. After trying everything suggested here (switch tv on off, reset PRAM NVRAM etc, and a few others) i saw the hdmi mdp cable on amazon and gave it a go, thankfully it worked and hasnt let me down.

     

    There are some workarounds too. For example, i have an asus tablet and ive installed airdisplay on mac and tablet (its basically a wireless monitor extension program), connect the tablet to the tv and use airdisplay to mirror my mac to the tv, works very well over my wireless router and using the mac as a wireless network. You could do the same thing with an old windows laptop you have lying around it will mirror your mac onto the tv.

    no my mac does not have hdmi socket. it only has the mini socket. I then connect my moshi adapter which is mdi to hdmi connector right? then I use hdmi to hdmi cable (3 different ones) and it does not work. I did resets and restarts. I spoke to apple on the phone they helped me do the resets (this time for free) but then urged me to take it to the apple store.

     

    I was scheduled to go to the store and I tried it again and it worked. so couple days later my scheduled appointment with apple has passed I tried using it again and now it didnt work.

     

    The I said screw this. I am not going to waste any more time on this. But then I got an email that someone had replied to my email on this board which I posted when this problem started so now I am stuck here responding to emails or comments I know will not help.

     

    I think Apple should read this, stop telling us to ewaste more money because I would rather swallow a razor blade then give apple another dyme until they fix all this so that the stuff that they sold me, overpriced stuff made in chine, god dang works. OKAY!!!!

    Entelligence

     

    you problem is very similar to the problem me an vic had. And i am pretty sure it will be solved by getting a direct mdp to tv hdmi cable. Not a combination, you combinations did not work cos the problem is not with the cables, it is with the adaptor.

     

    if i understand correctly you use

     

    an adaptor (mdp male to HDMI female) plus a HDMI cable ( hdmi male to hdmi male)

     

    what we suggest is a single cable (mdp male to hdmi male) and we have posted links to lot of cheap and costly cables. try a cheap cable, i am almost sure that it will work

  • eNtelligence101 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    ok thank you that makes sense. any good brands from amazon you suggest?

  • eNtelligence101 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    by the way, what is wrong with moshi adapter? Can it be fixed? Can I get my money back?

  • Vic-zx Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    I dont think you can get your money back but its worth a go, what happened with me is that they said they can only replace it with another one. Forget about the stupid adapters and forget about apple helping you. Get the hdmi mdp cable. You might as well order the cable from the link i posted earlier, it has high ratings. Let us know how you get on with it, im confident it will work for you. good luck.

  • aarjee Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    adapters, any make, are prone to burn out. so its likely that you wont get a a replacemnt or money back. No harm in trying though.

     

    ideally u should go to the store with your macbook and the adaptor and tell them your problem and ask for replacemnt and get the replcement checked with your macbook then and there.

  • eNtelligence101 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    what if after I buy the cable you suggest I still have the problem? Now I've wasted money on something that does not work. Maybe I should take it to the apple store but going to Apple store is such a negative experience for me. I brought my iphone to them because the battary did not work. After running their tests they gave me a new iphone. couple months later same problem occured. I took it to the apple store again and I was questioned as if I was a murder suspect by an arrogant techno sales clerk. I was given a run down by their greeterst at the store. They said we are bussy today come back in two days. I said no, my phone is dead and I want you to fix it NOW! so they moved their behind scheduled me themselves right there on the spot and what do you know, they were able to help me because there had no more customers. If I had listened to them I would be without any way to communicate with the ouside world for two days. I bet they do that to a lot of OLD customers.

     

    And their best store in the world on university avenue in palo alto california smells really bad. Like sweat and dirt. Most people that work there will ignore you unless you confront them. It is crowded, they treat you like garbage. Why would I want to go to a place like that?!!!

     

    I would rather buy a PC next time because I am dead sure that PCs will be better because Steve Jobs is dead and he was the reason why Apple was a great company. Steve is dead so is the innovation.

     

    And to APPLE, APPLE PAY ATTENTION. If your C level executive can tell the entire world during your last mac world detail oriented sales demo, "Can't invent new stuff my ***" if he can use the word A$$ in front of the entire world? Why cant I use the same word here to describe your services and your product without you deleting it or hiding that three letter world? Isnt that an oximoron an example of magnificent hypocracy? plain BS?

  • Vic-zx Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    If after you buy the mdp hdmi cable you have the same problem, you could explore the air display option, or maybe even ask apple to refund you for your mac. I know its really frustrating but this problem existed when steve jobs was alive - and they never fixed it. Let us hope that the mavericks os will fix it, although i doubt that. Ive seen posts from snow leopard about this problem.

  • eNtelligence101 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    okay but this adapter that I have works sometimes and sometimes does not work. So what if it works at their store and then stopps working at my place? I mean it does it here. It works for me then I turn my laptop off power it back on the next day or so and it does not work again. How can a burned out adapter do that? If something is burned out, it does not work. How can it be burned out if it works when it wants to? And why would it burn in the first place? I did not plug it into the PC or radio or a toster? it has been sitting by my TV plugged in to the hdmi cable and I would rarely plug it into my laptop. How did it burn? Did someone go inside and set the fire on? Was that a mini me from the gold finger? Why did he choose my adapter? What about thousands of other people who have the same problem? What do I do with this peace of (*&^(*&^(*&^ adapter if they do not refund me (most likely) because I have had it for over 2 years? Does that mean I've wastet my money on peace of junk that does not work? If this (*)(*&)(*& does not work how can I trust that something else isnt going to "burn down" on its own? Now if I listen to some folks here I have to buy a new adapter or cable I would have invested more money and what if after all that this laptop stops working? I would need to get a new one right? Well if that happens I will definitely not buy APPLE, YOU CAN PUT MY WORDS IN THE BANK!

  • Vic-zx Level 1 Level 1 (5 points)

    the adapter isnt burnt, its a driver/software problem.

  • eNtelligence101 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    air dysplay option? what is that? BTW I have an apple TV and I dont understand why I can mirror my iPhone but can not mirror my LapTop? ISnt that crazy? I really doubt Steve Would have tolerated this )(*&)(*&)(*& if he had been around. It may have started when he was around but he has been gone for quite some time but this problem still exists. Why do they slash adapter as broken if it works sometimes? Why not fix this )(*&)(*&)(*& adapter? Has anyone actually tried fixing this? Can it be repaired? Repair the ADAPTER APPLE!!!
