What sort of TV do you have? Does it have DVI/VGA inputs? What about sound. Does it have a 3.5mm input jack or a optical audio input? Or does your TV only have composite/component inputs?

What about the back? Can you take a look and describe what sort of connections you have?

Yea, that's just the adapter. You'll have to get yourself an composite cable to connect the adapter to the TV. Here is the link to the item at the Apple Store

Mini-DVI to Video Adapter

Now, that adapter is just for the video. There is an adapter you can buy that converts 3.5mm to composite. My speakers came with one, I'm sure you can buy one for cheap at your local Radio Shack or equivalent.


Edit: Here we go, Apple has what I'm talking about

Stereo Connection Kit

Now, don't actually BUY the one I linked to. Those are WAY overpriced. I just posted a link so you knew what I was talking about.

Yea I would go s-video if you can find a mini-dvi to s-video cable cause the composite video quality on most tvs in minimal.
