Hi,

I have a macbook pro and i was wondering if you can change the vga/dvi video output on it to hdmi or scart so i can connect the mbp up to a lcd tv. I have looked on google, and there seems to be two options: a cable that just has the two different connection ends or a box, the latter being a lot more expensive. Could you inform me which one i need to use?

Thanks, Giles.

She figured out that the only way to keep from being frozen was to stay in motion,
and long ago converted most of her flesh into liquid.
Now when she smells danger, she spills herself all over, like gasoline, and lights it.

His resolution will not be the same as yours, the MacBook and the MacBook Pro have different connections.

With your MacBook Pro, need only a DVI to HDMI cable.

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.
