    Issues Connecting MacBook to External Display
    I've been trying to connect my MacBook to a TV but am definitely having issues with the connectors I have purchased. It is pretty unclear to me as to which I need exactly. I've been attempting to use this
    mini dvi to vga with this VGA to s-Video/RCA adapter into a male to male RCA cord.

    When I hit detect displays on my mac I get a clicking noise and thats it. No sound or picture.
    Do I need this mini display port to VGA adapter connector instead? Or maybe a VGA adapter like this?

    I'm really having trouble figuring out which ones I need. Any advice would be appreciated.

    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
