    I've got a Macbook Pro here that I need to have display a HD conforming image onto a TV screen but it has to go through a Y-Pb-Pr RGB Component cable.

    I've already got a miniDisplayport to VGA adaptor but can get another one if needed. Anyone have any advice on the best way to go about this?

    cheers all!

    Thanks for the info! I have both of those cables but it unfortunately didn't work, reason being the miniDispalayport to DVD-D adaptor was exactly that.. DVI-Digital and has some extra pins that doesnt allow it to connect to the breakout cable. So I was trying to connect the DVI-D to a DVI-I breakout cable.

    I've ordered this now:

    Although I'm now confused again because your link took me to a DVI-A breakout cable... so it may turn out this is wrong again. I'll do some more research and find out when it arrives.
