    Hey all,

    Im looking to connect my imac (intel core 2 duo) to my 46" Samsung LED TV for gaming, movies etc... Im sure its basic but can someone please tell me how to hook this up (with the least amount of cables, my TV is on top of a mantle above the fireplace, so cords are a hassle). The TV is HDMI/DVI etc...

    Thanks in advance!

    What iMac do you have (have to be more specific than just C2D as so many generations have used C2D)?

    Your iMac has a mini DVI output, so get a mini DVI to DVI or HDMI adapter and then run the cable to your TV.
