    Okay, I just ordered a used Mac mini and I'm going to hook it up to my 15" LCD TV. I know that the Mac mini comes with a DVI to VGA adapter, but what type of cord (male to female or male to male, etc...) do I need to hook up to the TV. The TV takes the end of the cord with the pins (I know these aren't very technical terms) so what needs to be on the other end? It doesn't need to be a very long cable either for my set-up. If you could just send me to a link with a cheap cable that would be much appreciated!

    The end with the pins is the male end because it sticks in the other end (the female). I think you need a male cable at the Mac end.
