    I'm not sure which is the best and what each is compatible with. I just want to hook up an big LCD monitor or TV to my mac in the best quality so what should I get? I have a 32 inch Sony LCD (HD Ready, PC port, Composite, Scart ect) that's a couple of years old and I also plan on buying a new monitor.

    If HDMI doesn't work, probably VGA would be your best bet. And if you don't have it already, you will need a Mini DVI to VGA or Mini Display Port to VGA adapter depending on your Mac's display port.

    If you needed to use VGA and DVI from the minidisplay port at different times- could you do hook two adapters together for the times you needed VGA by doing minidisplay to DVI then hook that to the DVI to VGA? SO, you would have two adapters hooked together?
