    So...I'm trying to dump satellite and one thing I'm missing is shows that I can't pull OTA like stuff on AMC. Itunes has downloads..but instead of watching them on my mac I want to watch them on my 42" HDTV. I can't seem to find much info...I know that I can hook up my tv as an external screen....but is it as sharp an image as broadcast? If anybody can turn me onto what cable I need as well as answering that one question-is it decent viewing...I'd sure appreciate it. I know I can get AppleTv but would rather not have to buy it right now.

    Thx

    the ibook g4 won't cut it... the resolution isn't large enough. not sure about the MBP, but I would say yes.
