    Hi,

    I want to connect my MBP to my TV to be able to watch BBC iplayer downloads and wondered what cables i will need for picture and audio.
    The tv is a Toshiba WLT66 32" with a Mini D-Sub 15 pin connector and my MBP has the mini display port on it.
    Do i need the Mini DVI to VGA for vision? I need one about a metre long. The one's i've seen on Apple Store uk are all short (about 15cm)
    Not sure what audio cable i need though. My TV has HDMI port plus the usual L/R phono type sockets on it and the MBP just has the usual headphone socket.
    Any help or links to buy the correct cables will be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.
    :confused:

    why not just get display port to hdmi then use a std hdmi cable? if its a 2010 then you have option of using audio over the adapter, if earlier, some of the adapters come with audio cable to plug in to the audio out.
