    Have the Apple adapter for my MacBook.

    The adapter has two connections on it: S-video and a yellow connection.

    Is it just the S-video as a male to male lead that I need - what is the yellow connection for?

    Any other settings to get this to work?

    Just want to show off Front Row at Christmas!:confused:

    The yellow is your standard OLD SCHOOL video! It just dosn't have the red and white (left and right) on it!

    The "yellow" connector is composite video: Y (luminance) and UV (color information).

    S-video (separate video) splits the luminance and color signals.

    You may want to pick up a 1/8" to RCA for Left & Right audio cable.
