Hey Waterleo
I am running a very similar system. Black macbook and saffire not LE.
So this could be your problem. When you first connect the firewire cable to your mac from the saff you will see on the inputs a signal coming from nowhere. This is the mac syncing with the saff. Im pretty sure its the same with the LE but you must wait until your Line Mode(pad) lights turn green this means the two are connected. Try waiting for this it may take upto 3 or 4 mins sometimes depending if you are using the external powersupply or not.
If you have already done this and still nothing try this. FIrst plug a guitar into an input of the saff and confirm there is a signal being produced. If so your problem may be in your system prefs. 
Apple menu --> System prefs----> sound
you will see a window with 3 tabs labled input, output and sound effects.
go to input and confirm that the saffire is in the below list and highlighted, the same for output. 
Ignore sound effects.
Also i just looked at my saffire and i am not being rude now but i am assuming that your new to this tech. so there is a pot(knob) on the front for your saffire labled monitor, this is your main volume for the system.
hope this helps my friend.

    Further more i found this on the focusrite website http://www.focusrite.com/answerbase/en/a...



    Also if you could detail the whole of your setup i could help further.
    The problem could lie else where in the chain. perhaps your amp if you are running passive speakers or your powered monitors...


    there has also been firmware updates for the saffires so it would be worth checking that out on the focusrite website. There maybe clashes between older LE firmware and leopard.

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

Software Update program not working


Some updates are intended ONLY for Macs running on PowerPC processors, while others are ONLY for the Intel processor. Most of them are Universal Updates for both processor families. Don't dispair, and read on the Apple website the detail for the updates issued (about weekly on Tuesday) to see if the update applies to your platform.
