    Connect Macbook to HDTV?
    I was wondering what exactly I would need to buy to connect my macbook pro to my hdtv. I got the macbook pro this past spring of 2010 and I got it a few weeks before the newer model with the 2.4 ghz processor came out. It's the 2.26 ghz 13.3". I would prefer to connect it with an HDMI cable if possible. The reason I want this is to watch netflix and NHL center ice on my tv. I hope this helps. Thanks

    Well, if it's the newer 13" that has the 320m gpu chipset in it, it should have audio and video available on the display port where you'd just need to purchase a mini-display -> hdmi adapter (see: Moshi Mini DP to HDMI Adapter with Audio Support - Apple Store (U.S.) ) unfortunately, I think you have the model prior to the mid 2010 model that supports audio out the mini-display port, but I may be confused on the models.

    Another option would be something like: Kanex iAdapt 51 Mini DisplayPort to HDMI with 5.1 Channel Digital Audio: Electronics - this is the kanex model, there is one made by another company as well whose name I can't remember off the top of my head. Basically, it requires a mini-display port, the optical portion of the audio port (the audio port on the MBP has optical) and a USB port (for power)
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)
