    i bought a 24" iMac about 3 months ago (so its the latest model, i guess) and got the cable to connect a second 17" lcd screen to it, all working fine.

    id now like to also connect it to my tv (I guess this is the VGA convertor I need?), to watch my movies via Frontrow. is it possible to connect 3 screens in total? obviously the 17" doesnt need to work at the same time, but id rather not dis / re connect cables every time i wonna watch a movie.

    is there some kind of splitter available? I dont have a problem getting creative with several different splitters & adaptors as long as i dont loose too much quality. oh and the TV is about 6 meters from my iMac. Im in Europe and can accept the standard SCART and the yellow video plugs on my TV.

    You could use this Matrox product, as it splits one VGA input to two DVI or VGA outputs. I don't know about the extra TV set, but an adapter from Apple (VGA or DVI to S-Video/Composite) could work.
