    New aluminum Macbook and S-Video

    It have come to the conclusion that the new MacBook's and MacBook Pro's can not output to S-video. I have tired the Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI and then the Apple DVI to Video but no luck, the two do not connect as the Mini DisplayPort to DVI is missing 4 pin holes. I have tired Mini DisplayPort to VGA and then a VGA to s-video adapter but no luck, the MacBook did not even see a second display.

    Is there any hope to achieve my goal? I need s-video out for work and will have to exchange the computer for a Black MacBook if the new computer can not output to s-video.

    Any thoughts?

    Have you tried mirroring displays? Go to system preferences, click on displays, and you should have the box for mirror displays if your 2nd display is detected. At least that's how I've worked with the VGA adapter with my MBA, MB, MBP. Isn't there a mini-DVI S-Video adapter available? If not, then S-Video might be a future fix from what you are describing...:(
