LG 22LS4D - mac connection

I have just bought the LG 22LS4D to use as a 2nd monitor for my macbook and as a tv for my PS3, I have a mini-dvi to VGA adaptor and have input a VGA cable to the screen and it says 'no signal', although my mac recognises the screen is there.

Any ideas!??!

My sylvania monitor is say format not suppoted when i connect it to my mac


You did not specify Mac model nor connection cable. Let me make a stab at it. ED means this is a 480-line interlaced or progressive, not sure. So you will need to select 640x480 plain or stretched. This based on what my MacBook Early 2009 white allows. I assume you are using an HDMI or DVI connection from a mini-DVI (mine) or the newer mini-DisplayPort. (I bought an ~$10 adaptor from monoprice.) -Ken

Trouble connecting Insignia HDTV 19" to my macbook pro


One of the first things you may notice about your new big-screen HDTV is that it has more connections for video than your old TV ever dreamed about. It probably has two or three HDMI connections, maybe a DVI connector, a VGA connector, and at least one component video connection. And those are just the connections most commonly used for high definition.
It’s shame to let all those connections go to waste. Your Mac just happens to be sitting nearby; why not hook it up to your new HDTV? It's actually a pretty easy task. A few lucky souls won't even need an adapter; for the rest of us, at least one adapter will be necessary.
Pick the Right HDTV PortFor best quality, your HDTV's HDMI or DVI ports are the preferred connection method. Both are capable of the same digital quality. The only practical differences are the style of the connector and the fact that HDMI supports video and audio in a single connection.If it has one, another option is to use your HDTV’s VGA port. The VGA connection isn't as good as the HDMI or DVI method, but as long as your TV supports full resolution via the VGA port, you'll be hard pressed to notice the difference.Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, Mac MiniMac Pros, MacBook Pros, and Mac Minis have standard DVI connectors. Mac Minis and MacBook Pros have a single DVI port; Mac Pros have at least two DVI ports.If your HDTV has a free DVI port, then all you need is a standard DVD cable; no adapter is necessary. But in all likelihood, you'll need to connect your Mac to your HDTV using either an HDMI or VGA connection; both options require an adapter. If you choose VGA, you can use the adapter that came with your Mac.If you choose HDMI, you'll need a simple adapter, which is available from multiple sources. The adapter may be a cable with a DVI connector on one end and an HDMI connector on the other, or it may be a small adapter that has both types of connectors, but no cable. Either type will work fine.iMac, MacBookiMacs and MacBooks have a mini DVI connector for hooking up external monitors or TVs. You'll need at least one adapter, maybe even two. At a minimum, you'll need a mini DVI-to-DVI adapter. You may also need a DVI-to-HDMI or DVI-to-VGA adapter, depending on which port on the HDTV you choose for the connection.Make the ConnectionOnce you determine which, if any, adapters you need, and have the necessary cable to reach from your Mac to the HDTV, turn off both the HDTV and the Mac. Connect the cable between the Mac and the HDTV.Turn the HDTV back on first. It doesn't need to be set to the connection the Mac is on, but it must be powered up first, so that when it boots, your Mac can recognize the TV and the resolution it needs. Once the HDTV is powered up, turn on the Mac.Your Mac should recognize the format and resolution of the TV, and automatically select the native resolution of the TV for running the video. In a few seconds, you should see the Mac desktop on the HDTV.Over or UnderscanYou may notice that the Mac's desktop appears to be slightly larger than the HDTV's screen (its edges are cut off); this is called overscan. Or, you may notice that the desktop doesn't occupy all of the HDTV's screen real estate (there are dark areas around the edges); this is called underscan.You can usually correct either issue by making adjustments on the HDTV. Check the HDTV's manual for information on making scan-related adjustments. They may be called overscan, underscan, dot-by-dot, or pixel-by-pixel. If your HDTV has a dot-by-dot or pixel-by-pixel capability, give this a try; it should eliminate any over or underscan issues. Some HDTVs only offer these special scan controls on specific inputs, so be sure to connect to the corresponding input on your HDTV.Time to Watch a MovieOnce you have your Mac and HDTV working together, it's time to kick back and watch a video from your Mac. Be sure to check out the QuickTime HD trailers for a sense of what HD and your Mac is capable of. Enjoy!

Sharp Aquos LC-32GH5 and MacBook problem, HELP! I've recently bought a 32" Aquos and want to use it with my MacBook as a secondary monitor and screen for movies, etc... I bought all...


it sound like you did the right thing . The problem is the mac output for sound is bad or the TV input sound is bad.
try input a mp3 radio to the TV verify TV is working.
put an earphone to the mac to verify the mac out sound is working .
if both are working just tool around a little and you will get it. good luck

TV won't recognize signal from a DVI to HDMI input adapter


I had a similar problem with a Mac Mini.  The problem was caused by a mix-matched resolution (the Mac tries to use 75Hz refresh rate, TV expects 60Hz).  The best solution I found was to remote into the Mac (I used LogMeIn.com) and change the resolution on the Mac from a remote computer until the image appears on screen.
Process: 1) Connect Mac to a normal monitor and install the LogMeIn server (or other VNC type application) 2) Connect the Mac to the TV 3) Connect to LogMeIn from another computer (preferrably one where you can see the TV) 4) Go to Applications / System Preferences / Display 5) Change the resolution to your TVs native resolution, and change the refresh rate to 60Hz

Connecting my MAC to my LCD TV!


Do you have a DVI port on the LCD screen? Please tell me what connections you have on your macbook and your TV. There may be a converter.

Normally HDTVs can only be hooked up through S video or DVI Depending on your video card.

Flat Panel Insignia 19


Lets see the cableing..

So you have a mac with a mini-dvi slot, you have a mini-dvi to dvi adapter, and then Dvi to vga adapter which connects to the tv?

The mini-dvi to dvi adapter doesn't have the analog VGA signal your tv needs. If I understood right.

Apple's mini-DVI to DVI-D cable does not carry the analog signal coming from the mini-DVI port on the Apple computer. This means that instead of buying a single mini-DVI cable from Apple and using a cheap DVI-to-VGA adaptor when you need VGA output, you must purchase another mini-DVI cable from Apple.

Insignia LCD TV won't recognize computer input...


Heres the dealyo.
Click start button
Click control panel
Click display
Click settings
adjust screen resolution (probably have to go down) until the tv displays your computer
if this did not work, you will have to adjust bit rate from 32 to 16. Fiddle with the settings until the magic happens.
You will not get any sound unless you use an audio jack plugged into t.v.

No signal


Weegee, Unfortunately you are trying to mix two different video types: VGA is an analog video interface found on most computers (except for latest with flat panel monitors, which are usually DVI). Your TV DVI interface is digital (although there is a DVI-A, which is an anlog DVI interface, it is unlikely that your TV has this). So, what you are trying to do probably won't work. I assume your computer does not have DVI output (otherwise you wouldn't have bought the adapter), but some monitors have VGA inputs; does yours? What kind of DVI adapter did you get? Is a DVI-A? Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvi for info on DVI interfaces.
