View Full Version : Connecting iBook to TV

Dec 10, 2005, 10:45 PM
I have an iBook G4, the kind that came out in July 2005. I would like to connect it to the TV so that I can watch downloaded videos. I know I have to buy the Apple Video Adapter, but what else do I need? What do I need to transmit Audio to the TV? I will appreciate any help with this matter...

to send audio to the tv you would need a 3.5mm to stereo rca connector to plug into you headphone jack on your ibook. They are avalible at almost every electronics stores.

thank you. what about the video? what goes from the tv to the apple video adapter?

Audio: 1/8" mini to rca cable

Video (two options depending on what you have on your tv)
1. Composite video cable (the one with the yellow ends)
2. S-video cable (the one with the black ends in the picture)

All are really cheap at your local store.

AFAIK the apple video adapter has s-video and composite (yellow rca cable) connectors. So just connect it to your tv either way.

What happens with the iBook sends video out to a TV or external monitor? I think only pbooks support powering higher resolutions, so is the image stretched and thus a little blurry or does it look exactly the same just surrounded by black?
