Mac Pro GeForce 8800 GT (urgent)

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello - I have a gig on friday that needs RCA video out (...not working)!!

Has anyone has had success connecting a Mac Pro GeForce 8800GT to a projector/monitor using the DVI to RCA converter? I've attempted a number of times with both outs - to no avail.

I also can't use S-video, as the room full of televisions (awesome) only takes rca (lame...).
thanks...

It worked last time I tried it, did you "detect displays" after plugging everything in?
