    I was wondering if there was a cord or some other way to play movies that are on your computer through your TV. hopefully that sentence made sense to someone other than myself.
    thanks

    Absolutely. It depends on what kind of inputs your TV has and what kind of Mac you have.
    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!

    You'll need one of these to connect the video (yellow). You'll also need a cable similar to this to connect the headphone jack to the audio (red/white). You can probably find the audio cable much cheaper elsewhere, but this is an example of what you need.
