why did you unmount disk2? I thought you need to leave the DVD drive mounted, so you can read the data from it?

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... ???

comment Why is my Mac not displaying anything to my LCD tv using HDMI?
@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?
