    I'm trying to do some basic color correcting on some HD material on my HDTV monitor...but I'm baffled by the mini DVI port on my 20" aluminum iMac...what do I need? I found a mini DVI -- DVI cable, but how do I get a composite signal out of this thing? It says on the tech specs page for the iMac it supports it?? Any links to what I need. Thank you so much!!

    You need the Mini-DVI to composite adapter from Apple.

    I'm retarded...I meant component instead of composite...sorry. Or if that is not an option can I somehow rig up HDMI to the iMac? Sorry again for the confusion, my mistake.

    Does your TV have VGA input? If so, go that route (mini-DVI to VGA adapter). Others have reported success using Mini-DVI to DVI, then a DVI to HDMI cable, but I have not done that one.

    I don't have VGA...I contacted monoprice about this and they did suggest a DVI--HDMI Cable, so I'll try it out when it comes next week...fingers crossed.

    Thanks,
    Mark.
