    Got a TV without a VGA or DVI connection and I'm just wondering if/how I can connect a Mac Mini to the TV. Anyone got any ideas? No SVIdeo, just scart or composite connections.

    An Apple DVI to Svideo adapter connected to a scart connector with Svideo input should do.

    With Apple's DVI to video adaptor you can connect to composite video inputs. (This is the same adaptor that also has an S-Video connector, so it allows both for S-Video and composite output).

    So I'd only need to buy the DVI-S-Video connector?

    You want this. It has both S-Video *and* composite, so you can use it, even if you do not have S-Video....

    All help much appreciated guys :) Now all I need to do is convince the parents that a core solo mini would be great as a media center for the old TV - if only to try and get them the bug to bite for a full mac conversion on their old PCs
