    HI
    I have a macbook white which is MB881LL/A model which is released early 2009. I was looking for mini DVI to video converter and the applestore product has mentioned that the converter wont work with my macbook white.

    My TV has composite input and i would like to connect my mac to TV so that i can watch the netflix movies online in my TV. Can anyone help me in solving my problem?

    I was thinking to get one mini dvi to Video and a RCA cable to connect to my TV. I couldnt find the exact products to that.

    Thanks,
    krish

    Since you mentioned minDVI... This can be done via an Apple miniDVI to composite connector like this one:

    Monoprice and several other companies will offer comparable products - and probably at much better prices :)

    If you meant the miniDisplayPort on the newer MacBooks then thats another matter... There isn't currently an Apple made converter to do this for miniDisplayPort so - You'll need a connector like one of these:

    And then a scan converter or other "active" converter to break it out to composite connections. Or just wait a little longer and monoprice or someone will make a breakout for this type of connection :) Eventually... Hopefully...
