    What cable to i need for.....
    Viewing my preview screen on an external TV on final cut. I worked with this setup 2 years ago but it was through a DV deck. I run my camera into my mac (through firewire) and need a cable to view just my preview on a HDTV. Im guessing i need a DVI to HDMI but not sure.

    Does anybody know what i mean?

    Depending on which MacBook you own, it will have either a mini-DVI or a mini-display port. First you'll need an adapter to get to DVI.

    Then, assuming you have an HDMI available on the TV, yes, you can use a DVI to HDMI cable.
    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.
