    Specs:
    MBP 3.06Ghz, MBP 2.2Ghz, Mini G4, B/W G3 (Media Server), LCII, Beige G3
    Well w/ the rca yellow cable the picture is horrible.

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

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    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.
