1. what is the use for this type of cable !? I tried to use it to connect my MBP to my sharp LCD, but the LCD TV said signal not usable. so after research, i see I need a VGA to component, and use my DVI to VGA adapter that comes with the MBP. 2. is it possible to use the DVI to Component cable without the adapter, to a TV of any kind ? thanks peeps, YOU GUYS ROCK, THIS SITE ROCKS !
