I'm currently trying to connect a new MacBook to an HDTV via a component connection. I've tried to find a definitive answer on how to do this but all I've seen so far is a variety of conflicting info. My first attempt was miniDP -> DVI (via the monoprice cable) -> component. Unfortunately, this didn't seem to work. The reason, I think, is that the monoprice cable won't carry an analog signal. Is this true? Certain posts on this forum suggest that miniDP -> VGA -> component will work although this one seems to emphatically say that it won't. So I suppose my question is - will it work, or will it not work or does it depend on other factors like the model of the TV or the alignment of the stars?
