Connecting to a TV without HDMI, how?
I've not owned a TV in almost a decade, but someone has gifted me some old Philips plasma tv. It's quite huge, I'm guessing 50"? It has DVI, VGA and those red/yellow/white holes in the back. I've tried the DVI but couldn't get a signal. I'm not sure if it's the tv or if I just have it connected wrong. There's no manual, there's a remote with MANY buttons but nobody knows how to use it.
Are there any cables or switches I could use to connect to the red/yellow/white holes?
There doesn't seem to be anything on the online Apple store for macs though there is one for the iPad.
I'm only intending to use it to watch movies (if it still works).

DVI or VGA are your best bets. You should search for a manual for that tv via Google.

I would use VGA - however, does it have a separate audio in (like a heaphone plug socket)? Otherwise you'll get no sound via the telly, unless the red and white also act as input.
You can use composite if you can find the adapter (I had one years ago), but the picture will look pants.
