Does anyone know if there is a cable that will convert the Apple Mini display port to either HDMI or Component Video (or even S-Video)?

I want to use my TV for a 2nd monitor for my Alum MB-but the only cables I have seen at the apple store are mini video to VGA or mini video to DVI-and my TV does not have inputs for either format.

Thanks!

I've seen full-size DP to HDMI adapters, but nothing for Mini-DP. You'd have to go Mini-DP > DVI > HDMI.

You need the DP to DVI adapter, and a cable like this: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10231&cs_id=1023104&p_id=2661&seq=1&format=2

This is a far cheaper alternative.
