What resolution is the Mac set to? This the list of the supported resolutions for the Mini Recorder. Unless you've changed it the chances are that the Mac is outputting 1080p50/60 which is not supported.

HD Video Standards
720p50, 720p59.94, 720p60
1080p23.98, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p29.97, 1080p30, 1080PsF23.98, 1080PsF24, 1080PsF25, 1080PsF29.97, 1080PsF30
1080i50, 1080i59.94, 1080i60

Thank you for the response!

The Macbook is outputting 720p60, i also tried 720p50 with no luck.

I am running mini displayport to HDMi converter from the Macbook, could this be the problem?
