Questions about Thunderbolt cables
I want to connect my MBP to a 46 inch TV.
The people at the apple store say you need the TB to hdmi adaptor and an hdmi cable. I've also seen people on MR say the same. I can't understand why I need two things (adaptor and cable) to do one thing.
I started searching around and I found this mini display/TB to hdmi cable. It is half the price of the TB adaptor alone.
What options to other people use to connect TB to a TV or display? And will this cable on amazon work for what I want to do? Can someone explain why apple has TB adaptors and not TB to hdmi cables?
Thanks for the help.

If you are not using an Apple display, why not just use the mini display port adaptor? That and a long enough HDMI cable will do the job for you:
Just add a good quality HDMI cable. I use one of them with my MBP works fine, good sharp picture quality.
My thunderbolt stuff is reserved for data transfer, and since I have a 27" iMac anyway I rarely connect it to the TV, but I have tested it and it works fine...Also on my MBA
Thats Not All Folks
