    Hi there,

    I would just like to know why people are suggesting that you buy a Mini Display Port to HDMI (female) and then and HDMI to HDMI cable to plug into your HDTV to extend your desktop or use it as a second screen. Wouldn't an Mini Display Port to HDMI (male cable) get rid of the HDMI to HDMI cable? Even a thunderbolt to HDMI (male cable) will be backwards compatible with MDP.

    I would appreciate any feedback.
