Question about Televison & Video
I recently bought an Insignia 19" LCD TV [NS-LCD19 720p] (with 1440X900 display resolution and NTSC tuner) and am trying to connect it to my Apple MacBook 15". I purchased a DVI to VGA cable, and a mini-DVI to DVI adapter which works fine. When plugged in, my MacBook recognizes the MacBook monitor and also IDENTIFIES the Insignia TV/monitor, but the Insignia TV continues to read NO SIGNAL! I tried changing the resolution of the MacBook display to 1440X852 (the closest to 1440x900) and it did not work. I tried shutting all off and starting the MacBook first, and then starting the Insignia LCD-TV and it still read NO SIGNAL! What do I need to do to get the Insignia to recognize the computer since it is supposed to act as a monitor for a computer?
Heres the dealyo.
Click start button
Click control panel
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.

Here is my mac friendly solution:
Open your display settings (found in system preferences). Plug your computer into the TVs VGA port. Then, without shutting off the computer, unplug the VGA cable from the TV and put it back into your monitor.. A new list of resolutions should now be seen in the display settings. From the list, select a resolution that you know is supported by your TV (for me the max is 1680 x 1050). Unplug the VGA cable and hook it back up to your TV. You may have to turn the TV off and back on again or reselect the VGA setting to get it to try again, although I think it should work after a 5 or 7 second delay.
