What is required to connect an iMac to the HDMI port on a TV?

I am trying to discover what I would need by which to connect my iMac 20" to a 42" HDTV with HDMI port.  So far I have not found anything in the manual that tell what is needed, that all just state it can be done.

According to the "about this mac" it shows a Model Identifier: iMac7,1, processor Speed: 2.4GHZ and it is a dual processor.

  • How do I connect my 27" iMac to the HDMI port of my LCD TV ?

    How do I connect my 27"iMac to the HDMI Port of my LCD TV ?

    I have the 22" imac
    beside it I have an 24" dell monitor
    I used a miniDisplayport->DVi converter in the TB port of the imac
    thats the best performance because DVI like Displayport are both digital interfaces
    same deal with hdmi really
    so you need a miniDisplayport to dvi or hdmi depending on the inputs on your tv
    and a cable and thats it

  • How to connect apple tv when the hdmi port on my tv is connected to the hdmi modem

    I just got at&t uverse tv service.  The modem is connected to the hdmi port on my tv.  I bought a 4 in 1 out hdmi connector box, but don't know if this will work.  I've tried plugging the apple tv into one of the in ports, but I can't get it to work.  I've tried plugging both the modem and the tv into the out box and other components into the in ports, but it hasn't worked.
    Has anyone ever run into this problem where the tv hdmi port is used and apple tv requires an hdmi port?
    thanks,
    Joan

    I use this device as my 4 splitter and i get connection all devices working then after a few hours i get an error. can i get some direction on how to place each device on this one splitter? the Uverse box and TV only has one HDMI plugs, I put the TV HDMI from TV input to splitter Output, then I put Uverse cable in port 1 on the splitter, then appletv in port3.
    I need some direction if you can provide any.

  • What is required to connect T420s DisplayPort to DVI-D port? (Sony Trinitron)

    Hello.
    My wife and I have recently been watching Netflix movies on our laptop when it occurred to me: why don't we watch this on our 36" screen?  So I went out and purchased a DisplayPort to DVI-D cable.  Hooked it all up, selected the appropriate input on the TV and... nothing.
    I know that I need to choose the appropriate refresh rate and resolution.  My questions are:
    - Is there anything else that I am missing?
    - The NVidia Control Panel is not as intuitive as it could be.  How do I configure NVidia/Windows to enable the DisplayPort?
    Any feedback you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
    CONTEXT
    - Laptop: T420s
    - Cable: DisplayPort to DVI-D (passive)
    - Operating System: Windows 7 (64 bit)
    - graphics chipsets: integrated INTEL chip, and discrete Nvidia NVS 4200M Optimus

    Hi Gamloi7.
    Thank you for taking the time to reply to my posting.
    Config=>Display=>Graphics Card=Nvidia NVS 4200M 
    The T420s laptop has both an integrated GPU and a dedicated GPU.  I have tried using driving the display monitor using both... unfortunately it doesn't work.  All I see on the TV screen is black.
    TESTS PERFORMED
    - I have tried: Laptop (DisplayPort) >> to >> TV (DVI-D)... TV only displays a black screen
    - I have tried: Laptop (VGA) >> to >> TV (DVI-D)... TV only displays a black screen
    ADDITIONAL NOTES
    - Yes I have extended the desktop (via the Win+P shortcut).
    - For both test cases above, I disconnected the cable from the TV and connected it to my monitor to ensure that the signal was working... sure enough the monitor worked as expected
    - as I understand it the Sony Trinitron KV-36HS500 supports: 480p, 1080i, 720p
    - The following schematic is for the back of my TV. Do you happen to know if VGA or DisplayPort are compatible with any other standards?  For example... I don't suppose I can go from VGA or DisplayPort to S-Video ??

  • What is the best way to connect my guitar to the usb port on my IMac

    This is for use with Logic Pro X
    what is the best way to connect my guitar to the usb port on my
    I-Mac

    As has been said really, the less you pay the less quality, and flexibility you'll have on your sound.
    For example, you could run on a 'Rocksmith Real Tone Cable' if you just wanted a cheap way of getting your guitar into the computer for some fun.  Probably cost you $30 (I live in UK so can't be sure).  If you're starting out then this could be considered the best option for dipping your toe in the water without spending too much.
    You won't get a really nasty sound out of that if you can process it yourself in Logic afterwards to clean up, but it won't be great either.  I imagine it could get quite noisy so you'd need to get heavily gating your guitar sound, if you're playing something clean that's not ideal.
    Longterm, you're far better getting a decent audio interface, as you need something to play sound back through, if you have different input sources you usually have to create an aggregrate device on osx to use multple sources at once esp if you're using the built in audio chip on your mac to listen. 
    All this can add latency and possibly sync issues (i.e. drum tracks not in time with audio etc.), although generally it's not too bad, but it's something worth knowing if you want to do things on the cheap without buying a dedicated interface.
    What kind of money did you want to spend? Are you thinking super duper cheap, and then see how it goes and maybe spend more in future if you enjoy it?  Personally i would say £100-150 would get your something good to start with, like that Presonus audiobox, there's a lot of options like that available.
    My local music shop always push the alesis io2 on new users, gotta say i'm not that overly impressed with it.  Line 6 stuff will be good however, but limiting.  Although i beleive you get their software for free with it?

  • After setting up my brand new Airport Express 802.11n and accidentally using it to connect my iMac to the network...my iMac no longer connects through Ethernet?  Any ideas...I have tried everything without success!!

    I have been using Apple technology for about 10 years starting with 1st generation iPods and our house now includes a 5 year old iMac, all versions of iPods and touches, Apple TVs (both generations) and most recently an iPad 2.  I have always told family and friends that Apple technology just works.  Unfortunately that stopped today.  I bought a new Airport Express 802.11n to use for AirTunes around my new pool.  I set it up from my iMac and accidentally used it to connect my iMac to the network for a short time.  Now I can no longer connect the iMac to the network using a hard wired Ethernet cable.  I have tried resetting everything possible, from hubs to routers to the Mac itself and it just will not connect to the network through Ethernet any longer.  I am now a very frustrated Apple user especially when the support site says I can't use the fast path support because my product was manufactured 5 years ago...I just bought it at BestBuy yesterday.  All other computers and itechnology in the house are connecting via wifi and Ethernet without any issue except from my new iMac boat anchor.  Anybody who can help me???  Thanks

    John, thanks for the email so quickly.
    I too hope I haven't tried "everything" either but I am reasonably technical.  I had done what you suggested to do before but I did both again.
    Ethernet is yellow in the left side bar.  In the right pane it's status says Connected but then below it says "Ethernet has a self-assigned IP address and will not be able to connect to the Internet."
    I have tried the assist me menu and Network Status has Ethernet Green, Network settings Yellow, ISP Green, and Internet and Server Red and Failed for both.  I have turned things off and on, checked cables, deleted all locations and tried restting them up but to no avail.  I even disconnected everything and connected the mac directly into the cable modem itself and the thing still will not connect.
    Thoughts???

  • Why Can't I connect my  iMac to the DSL via the 5-posrt switch?

    I have been using SBC DSL for about 4 years. 2Wire DSL modem and connect this iMac to the network through a switch (splitter) because I have other ethernet lines to a base station and to another computer. Recently I upgraded the OS from 9.2.2 by adding 10.3 and now the only way I can connect is with the iMac directly to the 2Wire modem. I've switched the ethernet cables, I've tried reinstalling everything again, but no luck. The network preference "sometimes" says I'm connected via an ethernet line but the dhcp is 10.0.xxx. So when I try to Renew...I never get a good DHCP connection.
    If I was never able to connect via this switch box...I wouldn't complain, but this has made me rather nuts....when I connect this iMac directly to the 2wire modem, I can't use the other computers on line.
    Hope someone has an answer.

    OK, so it's been awhile since this was posted and I hope you've solved the problem, but on the chance you haven't you might try setting up a new location in the network preferences:
    Open system preferences
    Click on "Network"
    Click on Location:New Location...
    Click on Show:Network Port Configuration
    Click and drag "Airport" to the top (you can uncheck any of these boxes also if you don't want to use them"
    Click Apply Now
    Click Show:Airport
    Click TCP/IP
    Normally Conigure IPV4 is set to "using DHCP"
    Click on Apply now
    This should work. You may have to use the Apple Menu to set your location - It's a pain but at least you'll be up and running

  • Can I use my late 2013 Macbook pro as a display for my xbox one. I am currently sick with the flu and I do not have a tv in my room. Is there anyway to use the hdmi port on my mac and connect it to the xbox one?

    I am currently sick with the flu and in my room I dont have a tv. I tried plugging my xbox one's hdmi into the hdmi port on my macbook pro late 2013 retina display. I even tried connecting the hdmi cable to a hdmi mini display mort converter and that didnt work. How can I use my Macbook as a monitor to play game on

    I would guess that the HDMI port on your mac is for output only - no input, and that's what your'e attempting to do when you attach the mac to your xbox. I looked in Mactracker and it lists the HDMI port as video output for both the 13" Retina MacBook Pro and the 15" Retina MacBook Pro (your post didn't say which one you have), so looks like that is the issue..

  • My Viewsonic monitor won't work with the Imac using the Mini Port to DVI adapter.

    My Viewsonic monitor won't work with the Imac using the Mini Port to DVI adapter. I also tried the HDMI to DVI adapter ane the Mac-Mini with same result. The monitor does work on my older Macbook Pro that has the DVI connector. Is it a Software/Driver issue ?

    Should be extremely simple, please carefully read Connect multiple displays to your Mac. If you still have problems then it's probably a cable issue that would be resolved by replacing the adapter cable. You should be using this adapter. If you are using a third party adapter that might be your problem!

    How can I connect my Ipad Air to my PC to see the Ipad screen on the PC?
    I have connected them via the Ipad to a LIGHTNING DIGITAL AV ADAPTER-ZML connected to a APPLE HDMI TO HDMI CABLE (1.8 M)-ZML, and to the HDMI port on the PC. But now I don't know how to show the Ipad screen on the PC, as if it was a monitor / screen, so that I can then use Lync and share my PC screen with people virtually.
    Thanks for any help! Regards

    Hi Rob - thanks so much for your help!  Could you tell me what "air sever or reflector apps." are? and where can I look for information about them?
    Do you use them on the Ipad or on the PC?
    Do I need a cable too and which one?
    Sorry... I am not very technical as you can see, thanks for your help.

  • I would like to extend the screen from my circa 2013 27in iMAC with thunderbolt onto my circa late 2006 imac using the DVI port on that iMAC. Is this possible? If not is there another approach I can use?

    I would like to extend the screen from my circa 2013 27in iMAC with thunderbolt onto my circa late 2006 imac using the DVI port on that iMAC. Is this possible? If not is there another approach I can use? My 2006 iMAC is showing it's age but I figure I can use it as just a monitor just fine. Assuming I can connect the two together.

    That older iMac isn't designed to receive video input through the mini-DVI connection. Only certain newer iMacs are able to be used as displays.
    Your only options are to use something like ScreenRecycler mentioned above.

  • Portege R930 - BSOD when connecting high resolution monitor to HDMI port

    Hello.
    I have the Portege R930 (pt331a-01w001) running window 7. Everything on the laptop works as expected, however when I plug the laptop into a high resolution monitor (2560x1440) via the HDMI port I get blue screen of death.
    I can use the HDMI port to connect to my 1080p LCD TV and my work monitor which is a lower resolution and it works ok.
    I have tried multiple cables and different monitors of the same resolution.
    Can anyone assist?

    Hello,
    Yes that is correct. When my laptop is connected to a monitor with a lower resolution that 2560x1440 (such as my work monitor (1680x1050) or my TV (1080p)) everything works as expected.
    Once I plug it into the 2560x1440 monitor I get BSOD.
    The monitor only has a DVI-D Dual link port, so I am using a HDMI to DVI-D Dual link cable to connect the laptop HDMI port to the monitor.
    I was getting this fault with the original display driver (not sure of the version), I then updated to the Toshiba driver (v8.15.10.2712) and also tried the Intel Driver (9.17.10.2932) and still get the same problem.
