I just saw these adapters while I was browsing on slashdot

Seems to be good for the mini, powerbooks and powermacs.

They have DVI Single link - HDMI Adapters, and DVI Dual Link to Component Video Out adapters. The Dual link ones should be perfect for the powermacs and new powerbooks, but I dunno how they work. If anyone is willing to try them out.

If you bought a mini you don't need any of these. your mini comes with DVI plus a DVI/VGA adapter.

In addition, at the Apple store (or other outlets) you can get a DVI to video/S-Video adapter. In other words, your mini already can hook up to anything out there. I bought one of these adapters so that the mini can hook up to the "video in" on the front of my receiver. It will already work with my plasma tv.

If your TV only has HDMI your gong to need one of these adapters. Plus some HDTVs dont have DVI/HDMI so you need Component video out. And HTDV Video is much much better then going through S-Video :o
