    you could use a DVI to hdmi adapter for video and run the audio from the laptop to the TV. You don't happen to have a VGA port on there do you?

    I do something similar for my cable box on my monitor. I use a HDMI to DVI. HD channels aren't exactly 1080 or 720 perhaps but it works nice.

    Go with the DVI to HDMI wire but make sure you're getting the right female / male connectors (i.e. make sure they can be either plugged into or plugged depending)

    Edit: Make sure that if you go with the DVI to HDMI option that you get the audio wire too because DVI does not support audio.

    What video out does your MacBook Pro have? That will determine the connection as well.
