    hi all,

    i have a mac book pro, i can't remember which version but i think it is mac pro 2010 with One FireWire 800 port (up to 800 Mbps) and Mini DisplayPort, Two USB 2.0 ports (up to 480 Mbps)
    anybody know what kind of cable i can buy?
    the tv is a hd samsung (1 usb, HDMI, DVI, ex link, digital audio out optical).

    Sounds like you would need a MiniDisplay port to HDMI cable or an adapter. might not get sound out of it though. i think the 2011 models support audio. Also this is the Mac Pro section, just for reference.

    My 2010 MBA supports audio over a mDP to HDMI adapter. It's late 2010, however, and not mid 2010 like OP's MBP.

    You might get better help asking in the correct forum. This is the Mac Pro (desktop) forum.

    I've got a 2010 MacBook Pro and just recently started to hook it up to my Samsung LCD TV. I only use a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter with a regular HDMI cable. I got them both at and everything works perfectly.

    (I think this is the one I got:

    I did have to check when my MacBook Pro was released in 2010. I think I have to first one that will carry sound with my set-up. I think the ones made previously won't carry the audio. I can't remember how to check that out, but I did research it online.
