    Hello all.

    As I'm writing this, my blood pressure rising higher and higher. I need help!

    I am trying to connect my mid 2009 Mac Mini to Bose Lifestyle 48 VS-2 Video Enhancer. I can not use HDMI connection because all my HDMI connection ports are taken. Thus, I'm trying to connect via component.

    The Mac Mini has mini-DVI to DVI-D connector. However, I've yet to find a DVI-D to component connector. I did find DVI-I to component cable, but DVI-D and DVI-I don't fit, obviously. So, if I get a DVI-D to DVI-I converter, such as http://www.l-com.com/item.aspx?id=6055, then attached a DVI-I to component (http://www.amazon.com/DVI-I-RCA-Component-Cable-6ft/dp/B000Q6RL9Q) cable, will it FINALLY work?

    Many thanks.

    No conversion is expensive not a simple cable. I suggest using the mini with dvi to hdmi and whatever is using the hdmi ports now try to use it with component.
