    Hi...I'm new to mac. Before I'm going deep into my problems, let me intro myself. I'm Jeff, and currently working in a University. Well, my office gave me a apple mac pro 2.66 with 23" HD Cinema Display. Later, my project keep on going to video editing with Final Cut Pro (original). But it was quite challenging just to edit without viewing it using proper monitor. So I find out that I need another monitor or video monitor or maybe cheapest one, a TV monitor. How can I connect these thing together?

    I would be glad If anyone of u could solve my problems. Thank u.

    You would connect a Video Monitor to you're output deck. For many prosumers, their camera doubles as their deck.

    So you'd connect your camera/deck to the Mac Pro via Firewire and then connect the monitor to that using Composite, S-Video, or whatever your cam/deck has.
