comment Why is my Mac not displaying anything to my LCD tv using HDMI?
i know this is a late reply, etc.. but I've been using the short cable to connect between the adapter and the tv. This weekend, I've connected the tv->built in wall HDMI cable -> 5meter extension -> ATI HD5850 HDMI port .. and it works 100% fine! this means the wall cabling is fine. The issue is definately the breakout box I purchased (and pictued in the OP). Looks like it can't send enough power along the longer cable. Sorry mac - looks like the PC is the new media center :)

comment How can I check if my system needs more PSU power?
Hmm. interesting. So that calculator is suggesting that my usage is around 286W .. and recommends a 336W minimum PSU .. so my 480W PSU should be able to handle this... hmm. maybe it's not the PSU then .. :( Do those numbers sorta sound right, for my rig?

comment Firebug like application for chrome?
@MatrixFrog - true dat .. but his answer (IMO) is still the best. The built in Developer Tools are equivalent to FireBug's tools -- for most general things. Definitely a good start.

@Troggy - have u looked at my video? that's the first step, in the video. And the short cable works. TV <-> short HDMI cable <-> iMac. I'm starting to wonder if this has something to do with the adapter then... ???

@ChrisF so your suggesting that a 3m or 5m cable is the limit for Cat 1 (assuming .. and it's a good assumption, mind you ... that it is Cat 1) ? If so, why would the HD Camera work but the iMac not work .. if it's at the limit? that box i'm using might drop some power?
