The connector on my 2006 MBP is a DVI-I (Dual Link) connector.
The connector on the included DVI to VGA adapter is DVI-I (Single Link).
A DVI-D (Single Link) cable will connect to it.
to decide what you need for what you are trying to accomplish.
That TV comes with a VGA input connector for a PC.
Why aren't you using that?
Thanks Retired Engineer,
My TV user manual recommends that if you don't have a VGA out on your PC to go DVI to HDMI and then to use the supplied split audio/VGA input connector just for the audio. Am I reading this wrong and can I convert my DVI out to VGA male to connect to the provided input connector.
The adapter that came with my MBP has a female VGA connector. The TV also has a female VGA connector. You need a VGA cable with a male connector on both ends to make the video connection. DVI does not supply audio so you will have to connect the audio out of the MBP to the audio in of the TV. The audio input connector on the TV is immediately to the right of the VGA connector.
I have an older model MacBook Pro that just has a DVI-I output. I have been able to connect it to my Toshiba projection television that has DVI-D input. The image display on the television is orangeish/red. It makes people on screen appear as if they have a major sun tan. I have attempted to adjust color settings on the MacBook and television with no success. Any suggestions?
