    Hey Hopefully someone can help me out. I have the newest Macbook Pro but my roommates and I have an older TV in our house. The TV has components inputs as well as S video but no HDMI. I bought a mini displayport to VGA for my computer then attached that to a VGA S video cord which then connected to a S video cable into TV. I am unable to get a picture on the TV. Do you have to turn on display option or is it to many connections? Please Help!

    if it's just a cord, it won't work.
    It needs to be a box, with a power adapter. the signal you need isn't in a standard VGA connection, so you need something to convert the signal.
