How do I connect my 2011 27 inch iMac to my HDTV

I want to connect my iMac to my HDTV

Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
The HDTV has a HDMI port which you can use to connect your computer to your HDTV. In order to connect the Mac to your TV, first you have to buy a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter (your computer has got a Thunderbolt port, but it's compatible with Mini DisplayPort cables and adapters).

Also, buy a HDMI cable to connect the adapter to your TV. After connecting the HDMI cable to both, image will start being shown on the TV

    Hi there,
    The simplest way is to drag it across wirelessly using the 'Airdrop' application once both computers are near one another. 'Airdrop' can be found near the top, on the left hand side menu, within 'Finder'.

  • How can i safely bring an 27 inch imac from us?

    how can i safely bring an 27 inch imac from us?

    Only your airline can answer if you can bring it as checked luggage or what it will cost to do so. You should compare that cost to what a shipper will charge.
    In addition to the other comments concerning packing, I would recommend you use the original packing material  if you still have it. The box it came in was designed to ship the iMac long distances safely.  If you want to add to the original package then put the original box into something else.
    good luck

  • How do you connect MacBook Pro 13 inch early 2011 to TV?

    How can one connect a MacBook Pro 13inch early 2011 to a TV? What types of cables are needed? Possibility of wireless connection?
    Thanks.

    No possibility of a wireless connection without a lot of work and expense.  But it's possible.
    Depending on the type of TV you have, you'll need a MiniDisplay Port to HDMI or DVI connector.  Belkin, Apple, and others make them, just google.  This isn't a place to go cheap, so don't get the $5.00 one.

  • How do you connect a Xbox360 to a IMac 21'5, Mid 2011

    Hey.. This is my first time using the Apple Support website so ye..
    I was wondering how you would connect the latest Xbox360 (not Xbox One) to a Mid 2011, 21'5 IMac..
    Cheers

    Sorry, as far as I know the only iMacs this would work with are the 2009 & 2010 iMacs.

  • How do I fix this - my 24 inch imac indicates its screen is 16.5 inch

    My 24 inch iMac began displaying everything much bigger than normal today.  The system preferences display resolution is set to 1280 x 800 which is normal, but in Displays under the About this Mac it says the display is 16.5 inches.
    What happened? And how do I fix this?

    Click on the Desktop, select Help->Mac Help->search for ZOOM and you'll probably find that you've inadvertently activated an Universal Access setting.

  • How can I have my 21.5-inch iMac replaced?

    In October last year, I decided to buy a 21.5-inch iMac, but I have had a few problems since receiving it in November last year.
    Firstly, about a month after receiving the iMac, my son noticed a grey "mist" forming underneath the glass display. Due to it being beneath the glass, I was unable to clean it. I took it to an Apple Store where they removed the display and explained that it was caused by my partner and myself smoking around it. Since we discover that smoking had caused the "mist", we have had a total ban on smoking in our home, but I have recently noticed that a "mist" seems to be forming underneath the screen again. Only this time I do not know how nor why.
    Additionally, we are unable to play DVDs on the iMac. During some DVDs, the DVD Player application becomes unresponsive and displays the "skipping over damaged content" message, and other DVDs are ejected a few seconds after being inserted. Strangely enough, CDs seem to work without any problem. There is no issue with any of the DVDs as they are all in perfect condition, undamaged and work on other DVD players in our home. I have read online that if the iMac is still under warranty, I should be able to have the SuperDrive replaced, and that may fix the problem.
    However, since I am still having issues with the reoccurring "mist" under the display, despite having had the problem "fixed" and taking precautions to prevent it from happening again, I would prefer to have the iMac replaced. There is no issue with content on the hard-drive as it is relatively new. I would also like to mention that when we received it, there was a "dead-pixel" in the centre of the display that is still present and does bother me when using it.
    I am happy I brought it as it is a very good computer, but these small faults are very annoying and are ruining our experience with owning an iMac. I was wondering if someone could perhaps advise me on what to do? It is still under the one-year limited warranty, and I have an AppleCare Protection Plan, but I have yet to register it incase I have my iMac replaced, or would the AppleCare Protection Plan be transferred to the new iMac if it is replaced?
    Thank you.
    *Additional Details*
    The "mist" is like a greyish tar on the underside of the glass. It extends from the far left corner with a radius of approximately 5-inches. It is located only on the left of the display and is visible when the iMac is switched off, and when the iMac is switched on. When switched on, the "mist" is not as visible, but it dilutes the colours of the pixels, thus making it visible. The coloration of the pixels in the "misted" area appears less saturated, with some small areas appearing almost black-and-white.
    This "mist", as I have described it is very much a problem. Over time, it appears to be moving down the display towards the bottom left corner.

    As the anti-smoking people will point out at every turn, that stuff gets into EVERYTHING, and you'll never get rid of all of it. It's like the joke about Indian food, and how you have to burn the house down to get rid of the smell.
    The "mist" is likely remnants of the tar from the cigarettes. It doesn't matter if you're smoking outside or 10 miles away, it will get on your hands, in your clothes, you'll even exude it from your skin. It could also be that this is just whatever managed to get into the system before you took it in to be cleaned off the first time. It may take a few more cleanings before it's more or less gone. You will probably never be completely rid of it, but the problem will likely decrease in frequency if you continue to smoke elsewhere.
    Personally, I wouldn't push this issue too much. They probably would have been well within reason to just void your warranty when you took it in the first time. They didn't so, take that as a gift. You keep pushing the replacement idea, you may find you run into someone who has no problem just saying that you've damaged the system, and refuse to service it.
    Now, the DVD thing could also be a result of you having smoked in the house. That tar and other garbage in cigarettes is just as bad for electronics as it is your lungs. It will have a way of coating, and sticking, to things where you don't want it coating or sticking. Like the lens that focuses the laser to read DVDs. That has to be very precisely calibrated for it to work. Anything that messes with the focusing of that laser is not good.
    However, since you have other devices that work, and presumably have been exposed to the environment of your home for far longer, you probably just have a bad drive, and you can get that replaced. You can also ask them nicely to clean off the glass again since they have to take it off to replace the drive. But I would not take my chances if they give you any kind of resistance to that idea. You can go on all you want about how unfair you think it is, but unless you're willing to take it to court, where your odds of success are probably pretty low... Unfair or not, that's how it is.
    The AppleCare plan I'm torn on. Normally I'm all for this, but I'd hate to see you end up wasting your money because they decide that the effects of smoking are the cause of the damage, and thus lumped in with things like liquid damage. I'd call Apple's AppleCare department, decline to give the serial number for your system, and just ask them what their policy is on smoking related incidents as far as warranty claims go. Then you can make a decision about whether or not you want to return the AppleCare package for a refund, and your system won't necessarily be flagged, unless they do it at the store.

  • HT1529 how could i connect a xbox 360 to imac monitor?

    i would like to connect my xbox to my imac monitor to use it as a display.

    In general you would unplug the monitor from the Mac Pro and then directly connect the monitor to the xBox 360 (with the correct adapter cable, depending on which version of the xBox 360 you have). However, if you don't have permission from the owner of the lab to be connecting and disconnecting cables you shouldn't be doing that. Buy a cheap 1080p TV and use your xBox 360 at home.

  • How do I Connect a F4580 to an imac using a Virgin Netgear Hub

    I have just tried to connect the printer to a new imac and I am able to print using the USB cable but when I disconnect this I cannot find the printer on my network.   I have read several threads and many mention using the installation CD.   The imac doesn't have a disc drive and the driver I have downloaded comes from Apple Software Updates.  
    I do not understand how to connect the printer to the wifi.   The Mac Airport utility cannot find the printer.   Surely I will somehow need to enter the network name and password but I have not been through a set-up process which requires this and do not understand how to initiate one.
    I have taken hours and achieved nothing so far so I am now very frustrated!!   Help would be much appreciated!!
    This question was solved.
    View Solution.

    If indeed you have a Netgear Hub, then that is the wrong piece of network equipment.  If it is a Virgin Netgear router, then that will work.  The connection must use a router.
    Unfortunately, there is no software from HP to help you install this printer (assuming your new iMac has OS 10.8).  So, we will have to do it manually:
    1. Reset the printer.  Pull the power cord out of the back of the printer for 30 seconds.
    2. When the printer turns back on, on your Mac look for a wireless network that begins with 'hp", likely "hpsetup".  Join it.
    3. Print a Wireless Network Test from the front of the printer.  Note its IP address.
    4. Type that IP address into Safari web browser.
    5. Navigate to the Network or Wireless tab and look for Wireless Setup Wizard.  Run it.
    6. Finally, connect your Mac back to your regular wireless network, go to Apple menu > System Preferences > Print & Scan and add the printer with the '+' sign.

  • How can I connect an ADC to an iMac G4 with mini-VGA port?

    I have an Apple Studio Display monitor that I want to connect to my iMac G4 that has a mini-VGA port. I have the ADC to DVI adapter, but cannot find any adapters that go from DVI to mini-VGA. Please help!
    I "inherited" these devices for work from a different university. They originally used the extra monitor with a PowerBook G4 that has a DVI port. But I would rather use it with the iMac - is it at all possible???
    Thanks!
    iMac PowerPC G4   Mac OS X (10.4.5)   1.0 GHz 768MB DDR SDRAM

    Hi,Welcome to Apple Discussions.
    Depending on the age of the iMac G4 depends on what outputs are possible:
    700/800MHz - Mini VGA port to VGA port
    1.0/1.25GHz - Mini VGA port to VGA port or Mini VGA to S-Video/Composite.
    I'm not sure if the first revision of 1.0GHz iMac (Early 2003) fell in to the first category or the latter one.
    regardless... these adpators are available at theApple Store online for $19/£15. From there you'd need to find a VGA - DVI convertor and then the DVI to ADC convertor. Googling for such adaptors brings up several results.

  • How Can I connect Epson R2880 printer to iMac Lion wirelessly

    Can i do this with USB Bluetooth adapter, do I need a special adapter for mac. well whae do i need . printer in next room

    HellO:
    I do not have an Epson printer.  However, I did look at their web site.  It "appears" that the printer has no built-in wireless connectivity.  However, I "think" you could set up a little wireless network with an Airport Express (see description on this web site).  Do some research before you spend any money.
