You need one of these. A mini DVI to Reg. DVI adapter.

And one of these, a reg DVI to HDMI Cable, if its a high def TV.

My setup is currently a 20" iMac, with a 32" Samsung LCDTV as a secondary display. Works swimmingly. If your TV isn't high def, you'll have to get one of these. An Apple MiniDVI to Composite adapter.
