    Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter (£25)

    Belkin HDMI to DVI Cable - 6ft (£14.95)

    Can someone advice were would be a good reliable place to get these from at very low cost - apart from Ebay.

    Also has anyone used these items from the apple store? Or would they recommend others?

    You realise you can get a mini displayport to hdmi adapter? Then get a regular hdmi lead (£1 at poundland!)

    Depending what model your mbp is you may need audio leads as well. Do a search.

    mini displayport to hdmi adapter.


    I already have an HDMI lead, one for the PS3 to the TV.

    Would i need another HDMI lead...most likely this is going to be for the MBP to the TV right?

    And all i need now is mini displayport to hdmi adapter.

    The items i quoted before was coz an Apple rep over the phone advised me of these items.
    Thanks for the info....mini displayport to hdmi adapter- which company would you recommend?
