    I'm wondering if it is possible to take the video output of my mac mini to both my lcd tv and to my slingbox. I currently have my mini hooked up to my tv via dvi to hdmi cable. So what would happen if I use a dvi splitter and hook up one side up to my tv, and the other side I use an apple dvi to svideo and plug it into a slingbox?

    If they make a DVI splitter than my guess would be that it would work. Don't hold me to that though.

    I can't find a reference, but I thought I saw that this would work under XP (boot camp) and not Mac OS X.

    Give it a try and let us know.
