    Hey so I am wondering if it is possible/how to run dual screens with a MacBook pro and an HDTV?! I know it is with an external monitor and a DVI-mini adapter, but I will not be able to bring my extra monitor to college. I will however bring a tv. The tv supports VGA and DVI input and before go out and buy a cable and adapter I want to ensure that it will work. I also have an HDMI-mini adapter already and run it to the tv but that only shows an identical screen. If I can run dual screens with HDMI that be awesome cause I already have all the equipment. Ok! Thanks!
