No DVI or HDMI inputs, so what is the best way? Only the composite cables?
What inputs does the TV have?
If it has VGA like most TVs do, use that.
I hate threads like this. We need to know:
What model is your Mac and what video output does it have?
What video/audio inputs does your TV have?
Without these it is impossible to direct you to a specific cable, but generally speaking, if your TV has VGA input, it should also have a PC audio input (3.5 mm, like a headphone cable) and you should be able to find a VGA adapter for any type of video output your Mac has.
model is macbook pro 13" (2009)
has no VGA, HDMI, or DVI inputs
TV is a 46" sony kdl w4100 with HDMI ports, VGA port i dont think a DVI port
Okay, if you'd included a subject ("My MacBook Pro") in the original sentence, it would have been a lot easier to understand.
You will need a Mini DisplayPort to DVI adaptor and a DVI to HDMI cable or adapter.
if the TV has HDMI inputs then just get a mini displayport to HDMI from monoprice. U mentioned however on the first post it doesn't have HDMI so I'm confused.
i meant the macbook doesnt have any of the inputs
I figured that out. Your MacBook doesn't have any inputs at all, but it does have a Mini DisplayPort output.
how good is the quality hookin up a mbp to tv using that mini display port to hdmi?
it is nice. I have my mac mini hooked up to a 37" LCD TV this way and looks good.
im looking to do this also, i have ordered off amazon
Mini DP to HDMI
came to just over £10... will see how it works once it gets delivered...
Just to let you know, the Mini DisplayPort output from the new Macbooks does not output audio, even though HDMI does. You will need the MiniDisplayPort to HDMI adapter for video, and one of these for audio.
