So I want to use my HDTV as a secondary monitor for my iMac (2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo). The only issue is that my HDTV is an old model and does not have any HDMI inputs (ridiculous, I know). Since I want to watch movies on my TV from my iMac, I want the highest resolution possible and that means I have to go component (no DVI or VGA inputs either, my only option for resolution above 480 is component). After quite a bit of internet research on DVI and DVI adapters (after initially knowing nothing about the different versions of DVI, so if it seems like I don't know what I'm talking about please bear with me), I've come up with this setup. I'd like to hear from some experts on whether this would work or not before I buy all these parts and then have to return them all. So here goes: 1. Apple Mini-DVI to DVI-D adapter: http://www.amazon.com/Apple-M9321G-B-Mini-DVI-Adapter/dp/B000EK76K8 2. DVI-D to DVI-I adapter: http://www.l-com.com/item.aspx?id=6055 3. DVI-I to Component cable: http://www.xpcgear.com/dvicomponent.html 4. Component Female to Female coupler to connect my two Component cables: http://www.amazon.com/Component-Video-RCA-Female-Coupler/dp/B0015V89Q0 5. And finally my 50 foot Component cable with Audio (I will also be connecting a 3.5mm headphone jack to RCA female audio adapter to my iMac to plug the component audio cables into): http://www.firefold.com/50-Foot-5-RCA-Component-Video-and-Audio-Coaxial-Cable-White-P3437C60.aspx I may not be buying the exact parts that are in the links, but rather the same type of adapter/cable, it depends on what price I can find. But theoretically would this setup work? Is it possible to go from DVI digital to DVI analog without some sort of converter box? Some forum discussions say yes, you can hook up an iMac to TV via component, others say that DVI-D to Component is flat out impossible. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
