    if i connect my MBP 13 to a HDTV using a Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter, would the quality be as good as the same HD movie burnt to a DVD?

    Yes, although you should use DVI rather than VGA if that's an option.

    The only issue you might have is overscan either putting a black border around your image or cutting off ~15% around all the edges. If you TV doesn't support overscan adjustment, it can be a real pain or impossible to fix.

    Other than that, 'clear'.

    I'm using a DVI to HDMI adapter and it does the job admirably; my tv is only 720p but matching HD downloads look quite sharp regardless.
