    I would like to put the shows from hulu onto my tv at home. Is there any way to do this, like what kind of cord would I need?

    In that case I would get a mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter, and then connect that to a cable that converts DVI to HDMI. That's how I get video onto my TV anyway.

    i have connected my macbook to my HDTV using the following cables:

    HDMI Cable $0.23 (Amazon)
    HDMI to DVI adapter $0.53 i think (Amazon)
    Mini display port to DVI adapter $29 (Apple)
    Belkin Audio Y cable splitter $5.04 (amazon)

    These cables will hook up video and sound to your tv. The audio cable is needed because apple disabled sound in the mini display port for macbooks.

    Wow that's a lot of fuss for a relatively simple task. I don't like how Apple forces us to buy those $19 cables to convert away from the Mini DisplayPort. The only monitor that supports the MDP is Apple's own LED Cinema Display.
