How can i connect my macbook pro to my LG 50PJ350 to play movies?

I am trying to connect my macbook pro to my tv via a HD cable so that i can play films direct from laptop to tv. i have tried adjusting the settings on the mac but cant seem to get an image to stick. as i change the pixel rate ,(thinking this might be the issue) i get a brief image from the laptop screen appear, mostly purple and green, which instantly disappears. i know the cable works so what else can i do to make the connection clear and stable. any help would be much appreciated. cheers in advance.

I would try an s-video connection from computer to tv, it just might bypass all that copy right stuff that may be giving you problems

SOURCE: lg plasma

there are 2 types of flicker, one is the lamps that drive the display and the second is the sync signal of the video.
I assume the video sync is the flicker you see,
I would try connecting a different way to make sure it is not the tv,
connect using the aux /rca connectors to cable box.
and or connect using the cable direct bypassing the cable box.
I have seen several complaints about the hdmi cable signal being incorrect in some way,
this is the same issue that the svideo connector had in its early adoption signal was too hot or too low.
another thing to watch out for is the low light sensor on the front of tv if it gets an incorrect reading it can flicker the back light though it should be slow in doing so.
some times the flicker you see is not flicker but ac running through the sides of the picture from an ungrounded cable source.
how does it perform if you play a dvd player , with and without the cable box connected.

How do i connect my tv to my PC?


With most computers now, they all come with HDMI ports and VGA ports. What you can do is connect an HDMI or a VGA cable to the back of your computer (Desktop) or the side (Laptop) and then run the cable into the back of the TV where the HDMI or VGA ports are located. If you're just looking to broadcast Youtube or Twitch videos to your TV, I would highly recommend a Chromecast, as you don't have to involve a lot of wiring for it.

Solutions to watch Blu-ray movies on Mac and WD TV


Not an easy thing for Mac users to play back Blu-ray movies, even they are your personal purchasing. I’ve summarized three ways that Mac users have usually used to playback Blu-ray movies as following. Frankly speaking, the former two solutions seems a little troublesome, personally, I prefer the last one.
Solution 1: With the help of AnyDVD HD via Windows:
Requirements:
- A Windows PC with a built-in Blu-ray drive or an external BD drive.
- AnyDVD HD
- A Mac: MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, or Mac Pro
- Latest VLC media player or MPlayer
How-To:
1. Insert your Blu-ray disc to the BD drive, and run AnyDVD HD to remove copyright protections of your disc, no matter what kinds of protections your BD discs adopted, BD+, or AACS, AnyDVD HD is capable of dealing with them. Then you will get unprotected.m2ts files after the access of AnyDVD HD.
2. Copy the .m2ts files to an external drive or a USB stick, whatever, just let the Mac be able to read them.  
3. Use the latest VLC media player or MPlayer to play unprotected .m2ts files.
Solution 2: Running Windows on Mac via Boot Camp
What you will need:
- A BD drive
- A Mac
- Blu-ray playback software on Windows, like Cyberlink PowerDVD 9 Ultra
How-To:
1. Install Boot Camp and Windows
I do not mention too much about this process, because Apple has already given the full direction about it here.
2. Connect BD drive with your computer, and Playback Blu-ray via PowerDVD 9 Ultra on the newly installed Windows OS.
Solution 3: Rip BD with Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac
What you will need:
- A BD drive
- Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac
This ripper provides directly copy function as well as HD video output option, so there is no need to worry about the output file quality of your Blu-ray movie.
The above two methods are all depending on the assistant of Windows, while the third one is not, thus I’d like to show the detailed operating steps about this one in detail.

Easy-to-use steps:
1. Load BD files through "DVD Folder" or "IFO File".
2. Select audio track from the pull down menu of "Audio", both Dolby TrueHD audio and DTS-HD Master Audio are supported.
3. Click the drop-down list of "Format" to select output format. Directly copy, HD video, iPhone, iPod, PS3, and many other devices and formats are all supported.
4. Click "Settings" button to adjust audio and video parameters like codec name, bit rate, aspect ration, frame rate, sample rate, and audio channels(5.1 channels is included).
5. Click "Browse" button to specify save path.
6. Click "Convert" button to start conversion.
Once the conversion is done, you are able to find out the output files via clicking "Open" button. If you choose directly copy, you can use VLC or MPlayer to play the output .m2ts files, if you converted to other usual formats, like mov, mp4, then you can use QuickTime player or whatever to play back them. 
Via the Blu-Ray Ripper for Mac mentioned in solution 3, you can also absolutely realize playback BD movies on your HDTV with WD TV. Both WD TV Live HD Media Player and WD TV HD Media Player are all workable with .m2ts files, and they also support Full HD resolutions up to 1080P in common. In order to reserve the HD audio and video quality of your BD movie, you can completely select "Copy"> "Directly Copy" to just get the .m2ts files as the original as long as your USB device has enough space to store the output files. If not, you can also consider converting BD to a HD video format to save space as well as keep HD quality of the source file.

Well, hope the above contents are helpful.

It sounds like either the TV or the device is trying to do S video instead of composite video.
see if you can change the output type of the media player and make sure that the TV input is not set to S Video.
