How to get my HD TV to display what's on my Macbook Pro

I hooked up my Macbook Pro to my HD TV with Thunderbolt mini display port to HDMI adapter and then an HDMI to HDMI cable, but my TV does not display whats on my computer. Is there a setting I need to change?

  • I used a standard HDMI cable from my Bluray player and plugged into the HDMI port of the MacBook Pro.
    Did u switch to the HDMI channel on the TV if u hooked up with HDMI.

    Initially, i had a sound problem wherein the movie i played on the MacBook (and which was mirrored on the TV), the sound emanated from the macbook speakers --- there is a sound setting, from internal to HDMI. so u hear the audio from the TV
