    My tv has RCA output, so how do I connect to macbook? Should I use the mini DVI to VGA connector, and then VGA to RCA?
    Thanks

    Am sorry, I dont think I explained properly - am new to this. Should I use mini-DVI to VGA, and then VGA to RCA cabling to connect Macbook to tv? The tv has RCA.
    thanks

    What you showed is an "RCA" connector. A Yellow, composite video jack is also RCA. I've never heard component (RGB single color RCA-type cables) referred to as RCA.

    No. You should use the store.apple link that spinner posted and buy THAT adapter.

    Sorry I dont mean to bleed this dry, and I am probably using the wrong terminology, but by RCA output I meant the red, white and yellow cable outputs on the tv. Does this change anything?

    thanks again

    It's the input.
    Yellow is video, called composite.
    Red and White are audio, left and right channel (stereo).

    So all you need is miniDVI to Composite / S-Video (two outputs on the adapter): http://store.apple.com/us/product/M9267G/A
    and a cable from 3.5mm stereo to RCA seen below.
