I have 2 inputs in the back of my Sony CPD-520P. The connector type is D-sub HD15 connector.

Can I connect apple tv to it or is there an adapter ? 2nd , off topic....can I hook up a Mac Mini to this Monitor?

The other input is for a PC. So i was thinking the PC in one and the Mini Mac in the other. I'm trying to figure out the best combo. If I hook up the Mac Mini, can I run the Apple Tv through it or do i have to choose.

Thanks, I'm trying to get my first Mac.

The Mac Mini usually comes with a DVI-VGA adapter that could be used for the monitor.

As for the Apple TV, the only way I think you could hook it up would be to use a VGA-component video converter box and they can cost quiet a bit of money.

Awesome, thx for the info. Now i just have to decide between getting my feet wet with Apple using a Mac Mini or Mac Pro lol. You know which one i want :). I'll see what develops at Macworld first i guess and save my pennies in the meantime.
