I currently use an HDMI cable to connect my laptop to my TV for streaming video. Anyway is to close the Mac but still flow from it? Right now it just runs in "standby mode", and the connection is lost.

Hi all

I currently use a HDMI cable to the video stream from my MacBook to my TV. It works fine except that it doesn't seem to be a way to close the laptop and always maintain the connection with the TV. First of all, I do not leave my laptop open, exposed if you want, when you're arms reach. Then, when it is connected to the TV, it is at least 2 to 3 yards away. In addition, I have recently adopted a cat. His favorite thing to do is to tap dance across the keyboard. Therefore, I am more able to let the laptop taken in isolation within the connective range of HDMI cable because the cat will walk on it. In any case, I tried to find a way to close the lid of the laptop, the laptop to stay awake and keep the connection to the TV. Any ideas?

Thank you


See if there is a solution:

  • No sound from the TV using a HDMI cable not connected to the laptop ASUS G75VW.

    I have an ASUS G75VW, when I connect the HDMI to my TV, I get only audio through my computer laptop speakers or headphones, while it is plugged.  In addition, the TV picture is only 480 p.  When I check the sound icon, it shows that the HDMI port is "not connected" even though it is.  I tried to uninstall and reinstall the driver on both the NVIDIA site and the site of ASUS.  Same question.  Help, please!


    Make sure that it has the TV volume.

    You can also make sure that the connections are appropriate. Try to connect to another HDMI port as well.

    Refer to the section: "Check if the cables are connected correctly" and set the HDMI audio device as the default value.

  • HP 2509 m screen flashes and turns off using a HDMI Cable entry

    I have problems with my new HP2509m monitor. When I connect to my cable box using the HDMI connection the screen image flashes for a few seconds and then goes black for a few seconds and continues to do so. The time interval varies from May 3 to 6 seconds in each phase.

    It's the second monitor I got that this behavior. When I bought my system in October I ordered the 23 "monitor and it worked fine with the HDMI input, but I had trouble with the PC and he traded. The 2509 was introduced at the same time so I decided to share my monitor 23 "to 25", but now I'm regretting this decision. The main reason I bought the extra monitor should have the opportunity to move to the HDMI input for TV viewing, save space in my office.

    I tried the monitor using the same HDMI cable plug into the HDMI from my computer and the light is very good, so it seems to be a problem with the signal from the cable, but everything worked with the 23 "monitor leaving I think there is an issue with tuner HDMI monitor 2509.

    I searched the documentation on the HP site and google search but have found nothing of the sort. Someone has seen this and is there a solution for this? I like to keep the monitor. Thank you.

    Apparently, I was early to the part of the questions of this monitor.

    It turns out that the monitor is not compatible with the decoder I've had. The box is made by the Asian Development Bank and is capable of displaying 1080I content. 1080I is not the issue but because I can use a HDMI to DVI adapter and connect to the monitor and it works OK; It is, so I don't have the computer plugged into the DVI connector as I wanted.

    My cable provider was kind enough to take the monitor and test. They discovered that one of their old version of (amino) cable boxes works very well with the monitor. They swapped the box and it worked well since.

    I use my cable provider HDMI cable, so I don't know the spec version that is.

    My advice to anyone affected by the flashing HDMI display is to get a HDMI/DVI adapter and try it. They are supplied with a certain monitors so that they are fairly easy to find if you know someone who works in a computer SCIENCE Department. If the monitor displays the signal correctly then the question is probably the cable box or as another poster suggested, the cable can be out of spec.

    It is convenient to have the double monitor as a TV. The image quality is superb, but the sound is not. I do not understand why manufacturers monitor for skimping on the speakers. A monitor with its 'premium quality' would be a point of sale, and buyers would be happy to pay for the upgrade. I don't know about a lot of people like me it's simplify - remove the clutter and cables of our offices. HP are you listening?

    Never mind, figured it out. It is the HDMI2av converter. The converter might work power HDMI port or a separate power connection. The card is not enough voltage to run it. Then when I plugged it without external power supply it would draw so much tension that he caused the GPU to lock up.

  • The U2412M will operate using a HDMI cable to DVI?


    I am struggling to find a definitive answer to this question. I'm in the market for a new monitor and Dell U2412M seems perfect for my needs.

    I use a Compaq CQ61 laptop at work which has an ATI Mobility Radeon HD4200 with outputs HDMI and VGA graphics card. I am aware that VGA is less than digital connections, so I would like to connect the monitor using HDMI output from my laptop via HDMI > cable DVI to DVI - D monitor entry. I came across online discussions indicating that HDMI is limited at 1920 x 1080 on most devices, so I hesitate to buy the U2412M if I'm not going to get maximum performance. Other discussions claim that it's all nonsense and manufacturers do not know what they are talking about.

    A HDMI to DVI - D cable dual link (like this http://www.ebuyer.com/130513-xenta-gold-plated-hdmi-to-dvi-d-dual-link-cable-black-2m-plex-034) connect the monitor to my laptop HDMI output and display the full resolution of 1920 x 1200?

    For all of you who may wonder that in the future, I just got my U2412M as a double link base (don't know if it's important but it's better safe than sorry) dvi to hdmi cable from amazon and my laptop instantly recognized the monitor to complete resolution of 1920 x 1200, despite the specifications of manufacturers for my graphics card indicating that the hdmi output has a resolution of 1080 max , so the rumors are true - the manufacturers specifications can only be invoked!

    The screen is fantastic, thank you!
