    Hey all, have a pretty easy question that I probably should know the answer to but oh well. Just wondering how I plug my 2012 Macbook Pro into my older TV (no hdmi.)

    Do I just need the mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter and a VGA cable? That simple?

    Thanks so much

    If your TV has VGA input, yes.

    You'll also need to connect the audio. Use a 3.5mm lead from your Mac's Audio Out to the TV's Audio In(assuming it has one).
