    Hey,

    I bought a Mini DVI to HDMI adapter thinking it was what I needed for my new macbook pro. It turns out that it isn't. Do any of you know where I can get a Mini Display to HDMI adapter for cheap?

    Doesn't exist yet, the Mini DisplayPort is a proprietary connection, so the adapter would come from Apple and as of yet they don't have a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter.

    There isn't a direct mini displayport to hdmi adaptor at present, or any third party ones of any sort yet, right now you need a mini displayport to dvi adaptor and then a dvi to hdmi cable.

    Or, he could just use his current HDMI cable and get one of these.

    To the OP: As said before, MiniDisplayPort > HDMI adapters don't exist yet, however you could get one of those adapters that I linked to for significantly less than a DVI > HDMI cable. The adapters are available at any radioshack/bestbuy, and are definitely the best choice at this point.

    Actually you can get a DVI to HDMI cable at Monoprice for a little over $4.00.
