    iMac to TV?
    I am looking at getting a Mac Mini for my entertainment system, but wan't to see how well it will look with my current TV. It there a cable I can purchase to output my iMac G5 to my TV to test this?

    I have a 57" Sony HDTV with DVI and Component video.

    Thanks,

    What type of iMac do you have?
    I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

    Thanks,
    You'll need
    A) A VGA to S-Video or VGA to DVI converter (the first of the two being cheaper).

    B) You'll also need a Mini VGA to VGA adapter.

    Then just hook it up to your TV, go into System Preferences, look under "Displays" and then hit "Detect Displays".
