    well, I want to plug my MBP on my TV. The TV only have Composite (Yellow plug) and Component (red, green and blue plugs) inputs. I have found this adapter, but I know that Composite is crap, and my TV does not have S-video. I can not find any DVI to Component adapter... May be this will work with the DVI to VGA Adapter that came with my MBP? Any suggestions?

    If you TV has HDMI input then I would get a DVI-HDMI adapter. That will be better than anything else. Either way you will have to run sound from your headphone out since DVI doesn't output sound.

    No, my TV does not have HDMI. its a Old one. Only Video Component. And the audio goes to my Stereo System, with a minijack to RCA adapter. By the way, Im considering to buy AirPort Express... but I wonder if the "wireless speakers" system only works with iTunes, or will it work with other apps (ie. Front Row, QT, etc)?

    one last thing. Buying a new TV is not a option either.
