How can I connect my imac to my TV

Hi, I need to connect my Imac with my TV SAMSUNG AC 220. I used a HDMI cable but I can only see the basic picture of my Imac but without apps and no mouse. Then, I'd like to see the movies I created on Iphoto.
Can you help me please !
Thanks a lot !

Hello Lilaire,
In System Preferences>Displays, is it set for Extended or Mirror?

    How can I connect my iMac to a TV for playback of videos? My TV does not have HDMI.

    You need to find out what video out you have on your iMac, and what kind of video inputs there are on your TV.
    It will help to know exactly what model iMac and exactly what make/model TV you have.
    Depending on the exact model iMac you have, it may have miniVGA, miniDVI, miniDisplayPort or Thunderbolt output.  Your TV may have composite, S-video, component, DVI, VGA or HDMI inputs.  Once you confirm what kind of ports your iMac and TV have, then we can probably suggest the correct cable or adapter so you can connect them to each other.

  • Recently I bought a mini DVI to HDMI converter  from eBay for my iMac 21.5 Mid 2011, but only later I realised that it does not have the mini DVI port in that. How can I connect my iMac to a LG smart TV through a HDMI cable?

    This is the picture of all the ports from my iMac
    This is the mini DVI to HDMI converter which I bought from ebay. And I have the HDMI cable to connect it to my TV
    Could anyone please suggest me a solution how I could connect my iMac to the LG smart TV? Also I need to know if this transmits the audio as well to the smart TV?
    Suggestions are welcomed. I really appreciate and thank you for your time

    I would suggest looking into a Thunderbolt to HDMI connector. In this case, you may be able to use the TV as an external monitor. For this option, please confirm through additional research. I have not tested it personally.
    You can also use an Apple TV, which connects with HDMI. In this case, you can use Airplay Mirroring. Not all Macs support Airplay Mirroring, so you need to check first. I have a Mid-2011 27" iMac, and it supports Airplay Mirroring. I don't use it often because my TV is in another room, but I just tried it and it worked. It had to change the screen resolution to work well, so I don't know if I would want to use it as my day to day monitor. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5404

  • How can i connect my Imac sound to my stereo receiver speakers and not disconnect the computer's speakers?

    I find lots of confusing answers re how to connect my Imac to my stereo receiver, and I aldso want to avoid cutting of the Imac's speakers entirely when the sound goes to the stereo receiver and thsu to the larger speakers. Is there a way to switch between them, or can i keep them running simultaneously, which is what I'd really prefer? What do i need to go to Radio Shack to purchase?
    FYI, I have a 27" desktop Imac purchased 3 months ago, running Mountain Lion, and the receiver I want to connect to is an Onkyo TX-8050, wityh lotys of available ports in back - digital, universal, ethernet, and many rca ports "in."

    I think this should work, although the description doesn't appear to cover this use. Call Griffin to confirm.

  • How can I connect my iMac [Mavericks OS] to my TV so that I can show a Keynote presentation on the TV?

    I want to connect my iMac [Mavericks OS] to my TV so that I can show a Keynote presentation on the TV.  I have a local wireless network.  My TV is Internet accessible.

    If you do not have this option, then I would suspect your Mac does not support audio over HDMI.

  • How can I connect 4 iMacs to 1 thunderbolt storage device

    I work in a small photography studio. There are 4 of us with (thunderbolt compatible) imacs and we are tryinng to find a solution that we can access photos and videos for editing that are on one thunderbolt storage device that is connected to each of our imacs. I have only been able to find it possible to connect 2 imac but not more?

    I'm pretty sure Thunderbolt-attached drives work the same way as any other kind of external direct-connect drive, which is that they can only have one attached host (ie, one computer that sees it).
    Your best bet may be to keep the drive attached to a single Mac and share it out through regular Apple file sharing. By default, an admin login on that computer is able to see all external drives, but you can use the File Sharing system preference tab to control who can read and write to which shared folder.

    Hi mshields1162,
    Great question, and welcome to Apple Support Communities.
    First, you may want to choose to have the sidebar displayed for familiarity:
    iTunes 11: Frequently used features
    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5649
    Afterwards, your device should be displayed if connected:
    We'll want to click on it, and choose the Music tab at the top. Let's make sure "Sync Music" is checked:
    Afterwards, you'll have the option to sync either the entire music library (for your first iPod), or "Selected playlists, artists, albums, and genres" (for the secondary device). Upon selecting this option, four larger option boxes will appear allowing you to pick and choose what content will be synced. For audiobooks, you may need to do the above in the "Books" section. For a visual instruction on how to do this, see the following:
    iTunes 10: Sync to your iPod

  • Dear Community, how can I connect SCSI tape recorder via USB to iMac ? Is there any adapter/converter on the market now ? Cheers, Marek

    Dear Community,
    how can I connect SCSI tape recorder via USB to iMac ?
    Is there any adapter/converter on the market now ?
    Cheers, Marek

    Thanks Jan.
    Actually the reason to use Quantum SCSI tape recorder is to back-up big amount of data (propriety movies footage) both on PC (what is quite easy, using SCSII host adapter with VHDCI 68 connector) and iMac what seems to be not easy. All my search by Google leads to that conclussion, they finished production of SCSI-to-USB or FireWire because somebody stopped to produce chips to covert protocols. So even buying noe second-hand adapter, no guaranty it's still working with Lion (nobody is developing drivers anymore). Strange is, nobody or just a few are using SCSII (Ultra 320) devices (while the transfer is not bad, 320 MBps what is 2560 Mbps, so the only limitation is tape recording (some 80 MBps) not an interface. Using compression mode I can (and I do) record 1,6 TB of footage data. However quite slow, is safe and cheap, comparing with any HD storage solution. USB 2 is much more limited.
    I'm using Time Capsule for buck-up. But even 3 TB one day will be full of data, then old back-ups will be eaten by new once, what is not good idea for archives. I'm using another 2TB NAS HD (2x2TB RAID 1), but this is also going to be full soon.
    Of course, you are right, the option is another machine (OSX,Win,Linux or Solaris) equipped with SCSII controller. But this requires another machine, just for back-up time to time, and in practice iMac folders must be shared with that small auxiliary machine because amount of data practically excluding even temporary data collection on auxiliary machine. And it must be transfer by wire, not WIFI, my only network. Tape recording is in my case really good, professional solution, isn't it?
    Anyway, if somebody has similar requirements as me, and found the solution for SCSI, please let me know. So far, follow Jan's idea, I'm thinking about some embeded mini PC, fanless, equipped with slot for SCSI, with SOME smart system on-board, to deal with iMac for type recording. The option is previous Apple model, but to be honest, I became Mac/OSX user 4 years ago. I fell in love with Mac, but my knowledge about previous models is based on Google....
    My desk becomes full of boxes. Do you know how big Quantum TC-L42BX is ? Is very big. And now another box.....another keyboard....another screen... And one small adapter could solve the problem. Eh....
    Best regards,
    Marek

  • How do i connect my iMac to my tv to see movies with wire

    how do i connect my iMac to my tv to see movies with wire

    Hey rodskc10,
    Thanks for the question! Based on the iMac model and TV you have, you’ll need to pick up a compatible cable. There are a few options that can be found on the Apple Online Store:
    Mac Cables - Computer Audio & Video Adapters, Network Cables & More - Apple Store (U.S.)
    http://store.apple.com/us/mac/mac-accessories/cables#!
    For example, if you have the latest iMac and an HDTV, a mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable should do the job (you’ll connect this to the Thunderbolt port, which is backwards compatible with mini DisplayPort).
    For additional information, see this article:

  • How can i connect my 2008 mac book pro to a tv?

    how can i connect my 2008 mac book pro to a tv?

    The Mini-DVI to DVI adapter is designed for the iMac (Intel Core Duo), MacBook, and 12-inch PowerBook G4 — allowing you to connect to an external DVI monitor. It can also be used in combination with the Apple DVI to ADC adapter to support older Apple flat panel Studio or Cinema Displays.

  • How can I connect an old macbook pro...

    How can I connect an old macbook pro with that does NOT have a Thunderbolt connection to a new 27 inch iMac? I only need to do this for one specific purpose, to be able to see the work I'm doing on the laptop in InDesign on the iMac's larger screen (at a larger size as it were, so I can see a double page spread (or even a whole page would be an improvement) in one go)?  I gather it might be possible to get an adaptor but note that Apple don't seem to sell one. I know I could do this with the cinema screen but would rather do it with a new imac as that will have more use to me overall. It's a work laptop which I don't own so I don't own the Indesign to just be able to use that on an iMac. I have tried to connect monitors to the laptop in the past, but with no success at all.  I hope someone can help . Thank you.

    Im pretty sure you are talking about the M8536 which has an ADC Adapter.
    you will have to daisy chain a thunderbolt to DVI adapter with an DVI to ADC Adapter.
    the first adapter:

    The second adapter is old so you may find used ones on ebay like this:
