    I would also like to know...

    Also, what would I need to just use my TV as a non HD monitor as I'm out of HDMI ports?

    Sorry for being a bit off topic...

    Well I have the Mini dvi on my Imac, and I'm pretty sure VGA on my tv... would that just end up in a bad picture, if I did mini dvi - VGA? or is there not even a cable that would do that?
