Hey is it possible to connect my macbook to my LCD TV using Component cabling?
Why do you want to use component, I would stick with S video.
No way that I know of. Its either DVI/VGA or S-Video/Composite.
As far as I know there is no cable that will go S video to Component.
Ok so I'll just buy a S-Video one then
mii dvi to component/svideo 20 bucks
No, that's s-video/composite ... component != composite.
well if you would read the post the guy said he'd use svideo it has svideo SVIDEO=SVIDEO holy **** it's not that big of a deal calm down hot shot
Yeah, somebody needs to calm down for sure, but not him.
ElCambo Its possible but complicated depending on your TV. Does it accept DVI-I or HDMI? This would be much easier.
Mini-DVI to VGA
VGA - Component
Can you tell me what TV you have? It is possible you picture will be out of sync and you will have to purcase another device to correct this. Unless there is a reason for needing the component video chanels DVI or HDMI are more than suitable quality.

It actually is quite a big deal. Composite can only carry a 480i signal. A component (three wire) can carry up to 1080p. No HD in composite.
My TV is a Phillips 20" It has the Red/Yellow/White/Blue/Green/Red at the back, and it ahs the Red/white/yellow/ and S-Video cable on the side. However it does not support any HDTV
In that case you won't notice a huge difference between component and s-video.
