    Alright I just purchased a few hdtvs, and am thinking of setting up my powerbook up to it just to see how it looks. I've seen how it looks on a regular tv, but im sure the quality has to be alot better on an hdtv than a regular one.

    Just wondering what cables I need. My tv doesnt have a dvi input, but does have hdmi, so im guessing a hdmi to dvi cable should do the job?

    Yup, DVI to HDMI will do it.

    Don't know how it will fare with the resolution but should be interesting to try.

    I have the exact opposite problem. My HDTV has DVI and not HDMI. What sort of resolution should I expect to get from connecting my Radeon 9600 Mobility (64 MB of VRAM) in my 17" Powerbook to the Samsung Model #TX-P3064W with a DVI to DVI cable? And where can I get the cheapest cable to do this?
