Any possible way? I don't mind wires.
Apple sells them, HDMI adpaters.
Adapter to HDMI to TV.
I think it's called a 'Moshi' or something. Belkin sells them too, apparently.
wow! very simple thanks so much! Looks like it does audio too (didn't know mindp transfered audio)
but one Q, will I have to plug this directly into my Tv and use the ****** TV speakers? or can I go into my receiver and use my good speakers? any idea?
I'm not sure when HDMI audio was implemented in iMacs. In the MBP, it was last summer. Might want to post your model to make sure that audio goes out via HDMI for you.
Sure, you can route the HDMI through your receiver. Is it a AV receiver or just audio? If it's just audio, you can get a digital audio cable and just use HDMI for video instead.
As the iMacs use the same connections as MBs and MBPs:
How to: Connect a MacBook, MacBook Air, or MacBook Pro to a TV
Monoprice.com sells all kinds of DisplayPort adapters about 1/5 the price of Apple - good reviews on the items and all the HDMI and other cables I have bought from them in the past have been perfect
Some people have sworn them off because of a credit card issue from a few years back (they got hacked) but I use PayPal on all my purchases there and haven't had an issue
Many HDTVs have an optical digital out on the back. This takes the sound out of the HDMI connected directly to the TV and sends stereo or Dolby digital to your receiver via Toslink cable. Depends on all your devices, there could be several ways to set up your system.
