Thread: DVI to HDMI
03-10-2010, 01:29 AM #1DVI to HDMI
I was wondering what else I need to watch movies from my mac-book to TV.
I know I need to buy the DVI to HDMI cable, but I hear that DVI doesn't transfer sound. So what do you recommend?MSH

A sound cable.
(hint: it would go from your headphone jack to whatever the TV uses for sound input.)

There is not a single MacBook (non Pro) that has had a DVI port, so a DVI to HDMI cable still won't allow you to connect it to your TV without an adapter.
Depending on your model MacBook, you'll have either a mini-DVI or a mini displayport.
And in order for anyone to answer your question with the specific cabling you need for your setup, see the sticky at the top of this forum.

In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
