    Connecting mac mini to TV with composite

    I just bought a mac mini, and seem to struggle to connect it with our old television set, which only has a composite input port (as well as scart).

    I was under the impression that a DVI-composite adaptor would do, but things don't seem so simple. Hooking up with the adapter gives us just a noisy screen. I have tried various resolutions but no avail.

    I have seen some postings saying newer minis don't do a composite output with an adapter, and am a bit confused. Would anybody enlighten about which minis require what hardware/software, or perhaps some setting tinkerings, to be connected with a telly via the composite port?

    Any help would be appreciated!

    mini computer major frustration
    I am trying to accomplish the same thing. I have tried quite a few combinations of adaptors and such. I think my next go is going to be a USB to composite adaptor or a DVI converter, hopefully to RGB as I don't want to open walls at my house again.

    Did you manage to find a solution?

    Here is the adapter I was thinking of going with.
    TRITTON Technologies Inc. :: SEE2 Xtreme UV200

    Then from VGA to RGB with an adapter.
