my tv has dvi, vga, s video and component hookups. I'm currently connecting it to DVI through the mini dvi on my laptop. It works fine but when I hook up my mom's apple tv, the quality is like 10x better! Not to say I'm surprised, but is there a better way for me too hook up my comp to my tv without getting apple tv? When watching movies sound is np I have decent speakers hooked up to my laptop but at 13 inches the screen is much too small. I'd appreciate any advice.
