Start here:

Connecting your Mac to your TV

...and let us know how you make out.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Head for the link above - Post # 7.

Read the whole post. You have a mini displayport and using a composite connection, so you'll want to read items 1B & 2 in particular. Disregard looking at post # 15, it doesn't apply to you.

Yes you will need the adapter in 1B and the converter in #2.

You'll also need a 3.5mm stereo mini-plug to RCA (red & white) for connecting the audio from your headphone jack.
