I have a macbook that is hooked to my tv through the mini dvi adapter to an Hdmi and then into my T.V. While watching movies from my external hard drive off my mac the picture on the tv dims and brightens randomly. Is this a setting I can adjust or is it just something I have to deal with?

If you goto your settings you can change this or as my wife does, stick a post it note over the camera on your notebook.

Where in settings can you turn it off? and why would this affect the dimming of the tv because I usually turn my monitor brightness off?

It's probably from the ambient light sensors that are determining how much light is in the room to determine the brightness of the screen. If it were me, I'd close the lid and just use the TV as your screen and playback device.
