    I get the general idea but I'm not really sure what the exact cables are... I suck at this stuff. I'm basically confused about the audio part.

    Here's the Mac Mini:

    Here's the TV in the back:

    I'm shooting for 1080p resolution w/ audio going out from the mini into the T.V and out the tv's speakers.

    It appears I need to get a VGA cable Male / Female (mini comes with a dvi to vga adapter )

    But what the hell do I do for the audio part? Ha. The T.V is this one by the way : http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-LN40A550-40-Inch-1080p-HDTV/dp/B001418W2C (or I'm pretty sure. It looks like that one but may be a newerish model? Got it less than a year ago)

    for the picture, just get a DVI to HDMI lead, that should work, not sure about the sound, hdmi carries sound where as dvi dont i think
