I have an early 2008 iMac, MB324LL/A. I used to have it hooked up with a VGA/3.5mm combo cable to my Vizio and this was clunky but adequate. I have moved and am in the process of reinstalling new cables to wall outlets in the new apartment. I was hoping to upgrade to HDMI which seems smaller, cleaner and less expensive. I was heartened when I found the Kanex V2 only to have my hopes dashed; the V2 works only with later iMacs. So, has anyone got an ingenious suggestion, or am I back to the VGA/3.5mm combo cable?
