Oct 15, 2011, 02:07 PM

sorry if this has been asked before. However is it possible to connect my macbook air 2011 to tv via a hdmi cable?

Reason I ask is, that apart from the usb cable ports and magsafe port, i only have the thunderbolt one. So can anyone advise what cables I do need and how its possible?

Thanks n advance

You use a MinDisplayPort to HDMI cable/adapter and plug it into the ThunderBolt port of the MBA and connect the HDMI part to another HDMI cable or the HDMI input of your TV.
