    Specs:
    15" 2.53 Ghz MacBook Pro and 32GB iPod Touch
    DVI to HDMI
    I was wondering what else I need to watch movies from my mac-book to TV.
    I know I need to buy the DVI to HDMI cable, but I hear that DVI doesn't transfer sound. So what do you recommend?

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    A sound cable.

    (hint: it would go from your headphone jack to whatever the TV uses for sound input.)

    There is not a single MacBook (non Pro) that has had a DVI port, so a DVI to HDMI cable still won't allow you to connect it to your TV without an adapter.

    Depending on your model MacBook, you'll have either a mini-DVI or a mini displayport.

    And in order for anyone to answer your question with the specific cabling you need for your setup, see the sticky at the top of this forum.

    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.
