    How can I get it so that my MacBook will play a movie on my projector at full screen with QuickTime, but on my macbook I can minimize quicktime. In other words, with Windows, I could minimize Windows Media Player on my Dell, but the movie would still play at full screen on the projector.

    Actually, you can run the movie with the MB closed by using your remote. Get the mini-DVI adapter and connect to the VGA input on the monitor or projector, and make sure you do the mirror displays in the displays under system preferences. I do this all the time. I like to run the movie with my BlackBook closed. :cool:

    What connectors do I need if I want to push my videos from my macbook to a TV? Is there a DVI to RCA? I much rather watch on 27 inch screen than a 13 inch?
