I have been trying to find out what cables I need in order to connect my Macbook with my HDTV so I can watch DVDs and video streams. Can anyone help please? It's a new TV with lots of connections but I don't know exactly what all the connections are besides the HDMI stuff. Thanks!

Depends on the type of Macbook you have. If it's one of the older Macbooks then you need a Mini-DVI to HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable for video, then a Line-out stereo cable for audio.

If it's a very new Macbook then you need the Mini-Display to HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable.
