I have this output on my Macbook. I want to connect it to my HDTV. I'm assuming I need this cord:

Apple Mini-DVI to Video Adapter - Apple Store (U.S.)

But how do I attach this cord to my TV? It's awfully short.

Thanks.

You can't attach that adapter to your Mac either, as the pic you have posted is a mini displayport, not a mini-DVI.

I would suggest you start here:

Connecting your Mac to your TV

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.

Read up on the thread Bob has posted but just for reference you need a Mini-Display to HDMI adapter like this one... Amazon.com: Kanex iAdapt MDPHDMIV2 HDMI V2 - Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter with Audio Support: Electronics

Hope this helps
