    Hi -

    I am trying to get my girlfriend's parents a cable that will hook their 2005 Mac Mini to their HDTV. I don't know the specs on the mini, so I'm wondering what cable I will need. I know it needs to be something -> HDMI. Is the video out port on the mini a DVI?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Also, I understand that I will need a 3mm -> RCA cable to carry the audio.

    Thanks!

    If it's 2005 model, then it's G4 which has a normal DVI output. All you need is a DVI to HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable. You should be able to get those from any electronics store

    Be warned the G4 will have trouble with 1080p and 720p. SD will be fine.
