    I want to buy a DVI to VGA cable for my connection but I wasn't sure if I needed an additional cable for sound. Has any one had any experience with the process? How is your picture? I wanted to know so I can have all the necessary cables.

    My television is a Toshiba 26'' AV50U. It has a input for PC so I am sure this won't be a problem. If any one has any pictures they can share I would love to see them. This would probably give an idea on how my computer will look on my tv. Thanks very much for the replies in advance.

    its very simple. i am assuming you have a newer generation macbook.

    1) you need a mini dvi to vga adaptor.
    2) a regular vga cable.
    3) a speaker system which has audio-in or optical-in. you need to buy audio related cables seperately.

    all can be found on, but infinitely cheaper at if you do not care about brand, yet still care about quality.

    Gothamm is right about the cables you need. But instead of going to to buy individual cables, you can check out Amazon. They have some nice VGA cables that have an audio cable built-in.

    Something like this. Of course, search for the cables with a bunch of reviews. Some VGA cables have very thin sheaths and are prone to a lot of interference.
