How do I use my 2.53 uniMBP as a DVD player? Also what cable(s) do I need?
Put in a DVD. Press play.
sorry let me specify...I want to use it as a DVD player & hook it up to a tv?
What kind of inputs does your TV have?
I'm at work so I only have RCA's
What's work got to do with what inputs your TV has..?
Is your TV a Hi-Def one? Does it have HDMI inputs and/or a VGA input? If you aren't sure, Google your TV model and check the manual.
If it is RCA only, then you'll probably need a Mini DisplayPort to VGA, then a VGA to RCA video, with a separate miniplug to RCA for the audio.
No, not Hi-Def as this wouldn't make a difference as because I just told you that I only have RCA inputs.
If you don't have HDMI or DVI, then you'll need to read the post by RJS.
Yes I posted my comment at the same time so I didn't see that.
Thank you for the help.
Does Apple no longer sell the video adaptor that goes straight to RCA or S-Video? I had one for my "classic" MBP, but haven't bothered getting one for a unibody yet.
Nope, the MiniDisplayPort cannot output a "TV" signal.
You have to go to VGA, then to RCA...and that should work.
