I am trying to output my audio and video from my late 2008 aluminum Macbook Pro to my 46" Samsung LCD TV. It doesn't have a DVI connection, but does have the VGA and of course the HDMIs. I've read about the problems with outputing to a monitor using both the DVI and VGA adapters about grainy resolution and cropping, but should I forsee the same with my HDTV and these adapters? I would like to get the best resolution I can since this is primarily just for watching my movies and shows on the big screen, not everyday computing. Also, I have seen some 3rd party mini displayport to HDMI adapters out there. If I used this connection, does anyone know if it would output audio as well (my thoughts are no)? Or if I used the HDMI, could I still run audio through the coaxial/earphone jack configuration, or would it be suppressed by the HDMI? If anyone could help with this, it would be really appreciated. Thanks in advance.
