I have this output on my Macbook. I want to connect it to my HDTV. I'm assuming I need this cord:

Apple Mini-DVI to Video Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.) (http://store.apple.com/us/product/M9319G/A)

But how do I attach this cord to my TV? It's awfully short.

Thanks.

You can't attach that adapter to your Mac either, as the pic you have posted is a mini displayport, not a mini-DVI.

I would suggest you start here:

Read up on the thread Bob has posted but just for reference you need a Mini-Display to HDMI adapter like this one... Amazon.com: Kanex iAdapt MDPHDMIV2 HDMI V2 - Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter with Audio Support: Electronics (http://www.amazon.com/Kanex-iAdapt-MDPHDMIV2-HDMI-DisplayPort/dp/B0041NFIBS/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1299453840&sr=8-5)

Hope this helps
