Well w/ the rca yellow cable the picture is horrible.

If your tv supports HDMI I would get the dvi to hdmi adapter.

Use DVI at the MBP side and VGA, DVI or HDMI at the TV side. Any of these three will provide acceptable resolution for watching movies.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

You need to verify which connection type your TV has available before you go purchasing a cable.
