    Hi Hi,
    My brother just got a new macbook pro (13inch) for Christmas and he wants to use it as a DVD player as he only has a tv in his house, no cable Etc. He previously had a macbook with a mini-dvi to rca adaptor but the new macbook pro has mini-displayport. Is it possible to use a mini-displayport to vga adaptor and then a vga to rca cable?

    Does this TV only have RCA inputs? Would be better just watching on the MB.

    why dont you just buy a dvd player? The cost of the adapters is about the same price as a dvd player anyway.

    no, it also has scart cable input too, because the couch faces the tv... not really a better reason. just handy

    Because this way he can also watch itunes films etc too.
