    Anyone know of a cable/device that would enable me to connect my White (800Mhz) iBook to my TV (has AV in and Scart connections)

    I've looked around the apple site but I can't seem to find anything that would work.

    Thanks a lot guys

    Last time we played with somebody trying to hook a computer to his TV -- it really helped to read the instruction manual for the TV.

    Where his analog RGB input was found to be standard VGA, it even talked about hooking Macs up to the TV in the manual.

    yeah, I've read the manual but it dosen't mention anything about Macs or Pcs.

    Has anyone done this?

    Is it even possible?

    Apple's website sells a video adapter that has a yellow RCA plug (video out). I think it also has an s-video jack on it as well.

    Keep in mind that most tv's run at 640 x 480, so any text will seem pretty fuzzy, unless you have a digital set. HDTV's support a higher resolution, and work better for this type of use.
