Panasonic ae2000 via HDMI from macbook


Well-known Member

Last night I tried to connect my mid 2009 macbook pro to my panasonic ae2000 projector.

I have a mini dvi to hdmi adapter lead.

The macbook pro display would flicker when hdmi plugged in but the projector would not come up as a display device. (in display preferences) So I could not output signal too it.

I have used used same lead to connect to a philips tv without problem via hdmi.

Any ideas ?

Have you tried making sure the projector is connected to the Macbook and powered on before booting the Macbook up?

I did try rebooting it after it failed to recognise it but that did not work either unfortunately.

But there is some sort of recognition there as the MBP display does flicker and the projector keeps on showing the blanking as well.

No problem connecting MBP to a philips tv, no problem connecting the projector to a blue ray player.
