    Hello world.

    I am interested in connecting my early 2008 Mac Pro to my HD TV so that I can easily watch iTunes movies stored on the Mac Pro on the TV.

    I know the Mac Pro has DVI video out and the TV has HDMI video in, and that there are adapters between the two.

    Will this be as easy as connecting my spare DVI port to an open HDMI port?

    I realize that I could use an Apple TV to accomplish the same thing, but this seems easier (and cheaper).

    The computer is not very far from the TV, but I am wondering what the longest length of HDMI cable I could run would be before any issues arose?

    Thank you all for any assistance.

    Yes as simple as a dvi- hdmi adapter or cable should suffice.
