Open up System Preferences in the Apple menu, then go to "Display".

Make sure the monitor is connected, and click the "arrangement" tab. Check "mirror displays" OR drag the menu bar (white bar at the top of one of the monitor representations) from your laptop screen image to the desktop screen image.

When I connect my unibody macbook pro to my old tv using a vga to tv converter, my computer doesn't even recognize the disyplay.


When you connect your tv to your mac, make sure the cables are plugged into the TV first, and then plug your mac into the computer.
But a vga to tv converted doesn't make much sense. Your connection should be mini-display from your mac, to an adapter to either VGA, DVI, or HDMI depending on your TV connection type.

You need a monitor cable that allows to you connect via component or HDMI/DVI

Those samsungs usually come with HDMI and you can buy a dongle for about 20-30 bucks that has the monitor plug for your mac on one end, and an HDMI out on the other. Usually it's only video though and not sound.

Your mac would have to have a fully hd compliant mini port. To be honest I havent even checked to see if any do. Then you would want to get a mini video port to HDMI adapter. If you don't have one of the newer Intel mac then chances are you cant do sound through that port, which is what your tv is looking for on the hdmi port.

Easiest solution is to hook your headphone port on your laptop to a stereo or some decent computer speakers, which usually sound better than tv speakers anyway.

Hi
It may just be possible that DVI signal does not convert to HDMI signal. So in theory this may not be possilbe for you to get a result with your present attempt. May i suggest connecting to the DVI port of the TV. i.e Mini Display to DVI.

I have connected my macbook to my tv using mini


Later MacBook (Pro) use a mini-DVI connector that does not pass analog needed for composite or S-video. Was yours ever working? And most DVI connectors do not pass sound as seen by your cabling. You cannot detect display through RCA. You just set it in Sys Prefs :: Displays, try some other settings, although your seem right.
I have a white early-2009 MacBook and mini-DVI to HDMI adapter (monoprice <$10) and HDMI cable and have not connected the TOS-link for sound, yet--just slideshows at 1920x1080. You will get a much better picture digitally. -Ken

I just bought a HDMI to DVI monster cable. I went


Hi there,

what has happened is normal and you don't need extra software. You have extended the desktop. If you move your mouse off your laptop screen, it will appear on the TV. If you want your TV to show the same as your laptop, go into your system prefs, click Displays, and there should be a new tab in the middle called Arrangement. At the bottom of this window there is a check box that says " Mirror Displays"

Hope this helps
