I read the sticky article, which was extremely helpful, but I am still unsure as to how to solve my video linking problem.

I have a Mac Pro with two DVI ports on the back, one being used by the monitor, and one spare.

I want to be able to watch films and view photos from my computer on my television screen. The TV has a scart connection at the back and a white and yellow audio/video connection on the front.

What would be the best way of connecting the mac and the TV?

I want to send video as well as audio so that the whole thing can be heard and seen from the TV.

Thanks a lot for your help,

QUOTE Thanks

The way I do it from my macbook is to use the little Apple Mini-DVI to Video Adapter ($20) connected to a video cable to the yellow plug; and an audio cable from my earphone jack to the red and white plug. At home I actually go through my Kenwood AV receiver, but it works into TV inputs, too.
QUOTE Thanks
