I have connected my macbook to my tv using mini

I have connected my macbook (13" 2.16 Ghz Intel Core 2 duo) to my tv using the mini dvi to video adapter with the yellow composite video cable and audio using the the headphone output with a mini plug to a white/red RCA cable. I changed my tv to video input, but I get no sound and only rolling picture. The macbook seems to detect the settings. It chooses NTSC (1953) colour setting, and 640 x 480 60 hz for display. How do I make this all work so I can watch downloaded video on tv?

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

What cable is needed to stream Netflix to a Macbook?


If you want to use a TV as a secondary or mirrored monitor. All you would need is a Mini-DVI to HDMI adapter. Use the adapter to connect an HDMI cable between your computer and the TV. Once connected you will have an option to use it as a secondary or mirrored (exact copy of what is on your laptop) monitor. If you have one of the newer macbook pros you need a Mini Display port to HDMI adapter.

I want to connect an LG 32LD550 television monitor to an Intel based 24" I mac computer---what cable is needed?


The LG 32LD550 television has HDMI and VGA.
Your iMac has a mini-DVI output port with support for DVI, VGA, S-video, and composite video connections via adapter.
So all you need is either:
1) mini-DVI to VGA adapter.
2) mini-DVI to HDMI adapter.

HDMI is better quality, and so I'd recommend something like this: http://www.amazon.com/PTC-Mini-DVI-Adapter-6ft-Macintosh/dp/B001H0REVK (You may want a longer cable though).

The 13" White MacBook 2.0GHz has a mini-DVI out port. The adapter you need is
Apple Mini DVI to VGA Adapter
On the TV side, more information is needed. You need to specify what ports on the TV you are using for your signal, and what kind of adapter cable you are using. I suspect this is the component or connection where your problem lies.

Is these a driver to get USB connection to macbook


Are you asking if there is an adapter? There actually is an adapter (USB to S-Video) that will work between the two. However, with my MacBook C2D 2.4 GHZ, I use mini DVI to VGA adapter. This allows instant laptop to projector picture and sound. You can use it for anything from powerpoint to movies or even as a giant monitor. The mini-DVI to VGA adapter can be purchased at Best Buy for less than $20. Look for it in the accessory aisle near the Apple machines. IMO, this is a priceless addition to your MacBook. I hope this helps! Please remember to vote if it does.

Can I use an Apple M7649 Studio Display with a MacBook Pro


Do you have the black unibody Macbook Pro that was just released, or the silver model?

Since the display is DVI, it will directly hook up to the silver model. If you have the new model, you need a mini DVI to DVI adapter.
