    I've been trawling the net trying (unsuccessfully) to make some sense of the million and one different types of ports, connectors and cables I can use to output picture/video and sound from a MacBook with mini displayport. I'm looking for advice about how to connect the laptop to -

    (a) My rubbish old tv, the only inputs are scart and RCA (red/white/yellow plugs)

    (b) My roommate's fancy flatscreen (There's an HDMI input)

    (c) A projector. I'm not sure what the most common projector input is, nor am I buying this with a specific projector in mind. I present at conferences and am fed up of having to transfer over to a pc! What kind of cable/adaptor should I buy so that there's a pretty good chance it works with a generic projector? (sorry to be vague here, this is more of a 'just in case' purchase!)

    So, the challenge is to enable connections from a MacBook (late 2008, aluminum unibody, mini display port) to all the above (not at the same time of course!) at the lowest possible cost and/or least number of cables. Can anyone help?

    Thanks :)
