Mac Mini - Philips Tv via HDMI problem
hope to find some help here, Iīve searched this forum but havenīt find any solution for my problem.
Iīve tried to connect my Mac Mini with my Philips TV via HDMI, this works fine for about 20 minutes after this the colors on the TV screen nearly inverts and this stay till i restart everything in this setup. And after that the same game with the 20 minutes.
Iīve tried some other HDMI cables but it will be the same problem.
When I try it with any other none Philips TV it just work fine every time! So for my understanding the Mac Mini is fine and the problem in this setup is the Philips TV
Here is my setup:
TV: 32PFL9604 H / 12 with Q5492_0.26.78.0 firmware
PC: Mac Mini 2011 with OS X Lion 10.7.3
Thanks for your help
Solution HDMI problem MacMini
After browsing the web for some time I found that the 'HDMI problem' between my Philips TV and my MacMini was caused by an incompatible handshake between the TV and MacMini (which runs Lion). The solution that worked for me is to add a file to the 'Overrides' folder on your Mac. See below:
1. Download http://www.mediafire.com/?fdz29bgsg3zm653
2. Unarchive it
3. In the Finder, go to (using cmd-shift-G) the directory /System/Library/Displays/Overrides/
4. Place the entire directory you unarchived in step 2 (DisplayVendorID-410c) in the directory /System/Library/Displays/Overrides/
Hope this helps.
