I just bought a 2017 MBP (no touchbar) and I love it! But I'm struggling with how to connect the MBP via the USB-C port to a (not 4K) TV via HDMI. I used to have a 2011 MBAir, and I used a minidisplayport to HDMI 16' cable to do the job. I've read in a number of places that doing two signal conversions is dodgy, so my original idea of getting a USB-C to minidisplayport dongle and use the current cable is a no-go. Apple advertises their USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter for $69, but the reviews are terrible (on the Apple Store site!), saying that too often it just doesn't work. Amazon has a number of USB-C to HDMI dongles, but several of them say that they don't work with the 2017 MBP or MB, others say they will, but only if the HDMI cable is an "active chip" cable, whatever that means...most Amazon HDMI cable listings are silent on whether the cable is "active chip" or "passive chip"). I know I could buy an Apple TV and use AirPlay, but it seems a bit of overkill to buy a $149/$199 device just to connect my computer to my TV... Thoughts/suggestions?
