    I've been searching all over the internet and still haven't been able to figure out how to hook up my MacBook to a TV with RCA input (the red, white, and yellow inputs). Anybody know how to solve this problem? I you could link me to anything on the internet or apple store that I could buy, that would be helpful

    And subscribe to more consumerism? What if the TV the OP has still is sufficient enough for the OP's needs?

    The TV works, and thats all that matters. Plus, I didnt buy the TV (I am a live in nanny). But I'd like to be able to stream netflix to my tv.

    According to wiki:

    "Mini DisplayPort adapters do not exist for the older component video, S-Video, or composite video connectors. Connectivity can be achieved by converting the Mini DisplayPort digital signal first to VGA, DVI, or HDMI, then to the appropriate signal type."

    Hope this helps.
    You will also need to output audio seperately such as 3.5mm->RCA adaptor.
