    VGA/DVI to HDMI converter?
    Hi,

    I have a macbook pro and i was wondering if you can change the vga/dvi video output on it to hdmi or scart so i can connect the mbp up to a lcd tv. I have looked on google, and there seems to be two options: a cable that just has the two different connection ends or a box, the latter being a lot more expensive. Could you inform me which one i need to use?

    Thanks, Giles.

    His resolution will not be the same as yours, the MacBook and the MacBook Pro have different connections.

    With your MacBook Pro, need only a DVI to HDMI cable.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
