Hmmmm....

If you want to get techy, but cool, Radio Shack has some stuff. They have an item that will plug into your S-Video on your TiBook, and will work as a 2.4GHz Video/Music stream. It turns the SVideo into RCA jacks, and goes into a transmitter.

On the other end, at your TV, there is a reciever that will plug into your RCA jacks. Then, it is wireless DVD :D

It will cost you about 110 (tax included)

Or, you could just hook up an SVideo cable to a port on your TV ;)

No worries. :)

Yellow = video
Red = right audio
White = left audio

Since it sounds like you don't have an s-video input on the tv, use the adaptor that came with the Ti and plug the yellow cable into that.

Audio will be tougher, since you'll need a 1/8th inch mini plug to RCA adapter to get the audio out from your headphone jack to the white and red cables.

That help any?

PS. Once you plug the vid cable in don't forget to search for new displays/refresh the video output.
