I am looking at convertors to get my macbook pro onto my TV. Would you recommend a DVI to RCA or something else?

Thanks!

Can't recommend any connections without knowing what inputs are available on the TV. You will need to provide that info. Without that all anyone can do is start guessing.

The primary options are RCA, S-Video, VGA, DVI and HDMI.
What type of TV is it - CRT, LCD, Plasma? - or the make and model # so that we can find the info for the TV.

We will also need to know whether you have one of the new unibody or a previous model MBP.

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.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
