I have a MacBook with a mini-dvi connector. I want to know if I can connect my laptop to my Toshiba 46H83 projection TV. The manual has the following statement under the DVI/HDCP input section: "This TV is not intended for connection to and should not be used with a PC (personal computer)".

You need to convert the component sync signals into a composite sync compatible with SCART. The red, green and blue signals can be connected through as-is.

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 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

Macbook pro + IBM m4000

Depends on the connections you have on both. Most MacBook Pros have a DVI connector on the side. If the IBM projector takes that sort of input, then all you need is that cable.
If the IBM projector has a VGA input, then you'll need an adaptor from DVI to VGA.
(VGA input is standard monitor looking connector.)

No screen activity on startup

hi wa_flyboy,

I suggest you first do a test to determine if it is your macbook's screen or graphics processor which is at fault. To do this you need to connect an external display to your macbook.

The macbook has a mini-DVI port for connection to external displays. Depending on the connector of the external display you use to do the test, you are either going to need a mini-DVI to DVI adapter (for a DVI display) or a mini-DVI to VGA adapter (for a VGA display). These adapters are sold separately by Apple, see http://store.apple.com/1-800-MY-APPLE/WebObjects/AppleStore.woa/wa/RSLID?nnmm=browse&mco=669DFFE0&node=home/shop_mac/mac_accessories/displays

If an image is displayed on the external display after you have connected it to your macbook, you know that the screen of your macbook is faulty. In this case it would be an economical option to take the macbook to a repair shop where a technician can determine the faulty component (either one of the following display components of a TFT LCD screen can fail over time; the inverter, the backlight or the cabling). These can be replaced under warranty or they can order new ones if the warranty has expired.

If the external display shows the same symptoms as your macbook's display, it is the macbook's graphics processor which is at fault. I'm sorry to inform you that I think this is the cause of your macbook's display problem. Replacing the graphics processor of your macbook entails replacing the motherboard.
If the macbook is still under warranty I suggest you replace it and let technicians migrate your data from your current macbook's hard disk to your new one.
If the warranty of your macbook has expired, it's a more economical option to buy a new one and migrate your data to the new macbook. This will only cost a few dollars more than the cost of replacing the faulty motherboard (including the service costs of the repair shop to which you take your macbook), but is still more economical seeing as how you get a new machine which has a full warranty.

I hope this is helpful information and thanks for using the FixYa services
Kind Regards
