Hi guys,

I know this question has been asked many times, but I can't seem to find an answer to what I'm looking for.

I have an old JVC television, the only inputs at the back are the classic red yellow and white inputs.

I need to hook my macbook OSX to the tv, so that I can watch movies (from youtube and VLC) on the television. What cable will I need to do this?

And also, will audio still run from my macbook (which I have plugged into a very nice soundsystem.

Thank you a lot in advance!!!!

von,

Maybe this would work: http://www.provantage.com/apple-m9319g~7APLM00N.htm

The Macbook has a mini-DVI connector and you can interface to RCA or S-video for the TV...

Thanks Noel!

I'm going to order that cable tonight!
I guess I'll just have to head to a store and grab a standard RCA cable as well.

von,

After you get that adapter, take it to a Radio Shack store (I assume you have them in Canada) and make sure you get the correct cable for your TV. There are a lot of "RCA" cables out there...
