    Connecting 3 year old white MB to plasma HDMI?
    Hi all, I've been a lurker for a while but finally jumping in with a question...for a friend who just emailed me!

    They have a 3 or 4 year old white macbook and would like to connect it to their LG plasma. Now, I have no idea what connections the plasma has but assuming there must be a way to connect via HDMI with some kind of lead - I'm also not sure what connections the old white MB has which is why I thought I'd be best if asking here.

    Any help very much appreciated

    Specs:
    2GHz Mac Mini 2GB RAM 160GB 10.6.2 | MDD DP 1.25GHz G4 1.5GB RAM 10.4.11 | 233MHz iMac G3 10.3.9
    Like this?

    I'm fairly certain the old Macbook (iBook?) has VGA output to go to a monitor.

    Right ok thanks. I'm not sure if it's an ibook or not, not familiar with that range of older Macs I just know it's the white one that came out alongside the higher spec black one.

    Also, it appears that the real reason for wanting to know about connecting from a tv is she wants to get the sound from the mac out via the tv...however the headphone socket is broken, so I guess that probably means there isn't much that can be done?!

    Thanks for the speedy reply btw

    If that's when it came out, then it's a Macbook.

    VGA is display only; since the jack is broken you may be SOL. Sound card is soldered onto the motherboard. Sorry.
