Im an idiot, please forgive me
i think you need to buy a dvi to video adapter so u can use s-video
What TV is it dude. C"mon, give us something to go on. Does it have PC input or is it a relic?
ive seen people do it by
mini dvi - dvi
dvi - hdmi
but i think thats only with HD tv's
It would be to an HD ready Samsung TV.
If it has a DVI port, you just connect the two with a DVI cable.
If not, you need to buy a DVI -> HDMI (or whatever port it has) cable.
In essence, just find something that plugs into both, and you should be fine.
Use system preferences -> Displays to edit you display settings.
I've got a LE26R74. It has a VGA port and a HDMI.
Your MBP should have come with a DVI to VGA adapter, correct? So if your Samsung also has VGA, buy the appropriate cable (VGA-VGA). Alternatively if you have a Syncmaster or similar model that has a DVI input, you can buy a DVI-DVI cable.
If you're not using your HDMI port for anything, you could of course get a DVI-HDMI cable...
Shouldn't be much harder than that. Afterwards you can tweak extended desktop / mirror mode prefs from your Mac.
