So I went out and got a mini-DVI to VGA. I plug it in and it works with no problems. But here are the problems I'm running into:
1) I don't mirror the display. So basically it's like dual monitors with my TV serving as a second monitor. Is there a way I can get VLC to go fullscreen just on the TV? Every time I try, it defaults to doing fullscreen on my Macbook even though it's open on the TV.
2) When I try to mirror the image, it won't take up the whole TV because the resolution is not supported. It leaves black boxes on each side of the screen. I would rather it take up the whole screen as to not get screen burn in.
Any way to get it to play in fullscreen mode on the extended TV/Monitor?Use not abuse the rep system!

The way I used to do it was that I would set it to mirror on the tv at the highest resolution (which will leave black bars) and then use the "stretch" or "smart stretch" function on the TV to get rid of them. That solved my problem. Let me know if this works or not.

In VLC go to Video-> Video Device and select the monitor that you want it to go fullscreen on.masakatsu agatsu
