    Got my iMac today, working great, but need help on how to hook up a TV to my system.

    Because my iMac is hooked up to the ACD 24" display, so the extra mini dvi port is occupied by the ACD, so then how do I hook up my 37" LCD TV to the iMac, so I essentially have three monitors hooked up to my iMac.

    The ACD plugs into the iMac no problems of course, but my TV will be a different story, it's has two HDMI ports, S video and the 3 rca inputs.

    Is there a splitter or something I can buy so I can add the TV to the set up. I've seen photo's here on this forum with 3 even 4 monitors hooked up, but I have no idea how to do it, searched here for a while as well.

    Does anyone know exactly what adapters I need to buy to get the TV hooked into my dual monitor system?

    Mini DVI or Mini displayport to DVI adapter then DVI to HDMI cable.

    You cannot have the TV and Monitor at the same time
