  • Nice cable - but no picture or sound

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    - Good with only one cable from mini-DisplayPort to HDMI and no adapters

    - Look good without any dongle adapter beside the MacBook

    Cons:

    - Could not get it to work, no picture at all with my MacBook Pro 2010 and my LG 47" Full-HD LCD. Tried two different HDMI-ports on the TV, same result, no picture.

    MacBook screen flickered in blue when I plugged in the cable, but no external screen is detected.

    - Could not get any audio either, obviously since I didn't even get picture.

    Bottomline:

    Don't know if this cable is faulty. Will try with some other TV's also.

    I also ordered the Mini-DP to HDMI-male adapter sku.34025 and connected it with a HDMI-cable, that worked perfectly for both picture and audio. It would be nice to avoid the extra dongle though.
