I have a power book G4 from 2005. I can not figure out which cable i need to purchase to connect to my HDMI port on the TV. I have read about DVI to HDMI but am still unsure which one to purchase. If any of you could point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.:)

I heard these prices are good, just don't know which one i need to get.

Mind you I am trying to go from my computer to TV. Thanks again

All of those cables are the right type to go from the DVI on the PowerBook to the HDMI on your TV. You will need a separate audio cable though. How many feet do you need (cheapo HDMI cables aren't very good over long distances - but are ok for 3-6' spans).

O thanks, i will only be going next to the TV, 6 FT or less. I already have 1/8th Audio cable to my reciever. I have been doing S-video for some time, but its time to step up the quality.
