    Forgive my ignorance please, but can someone please help me purchase the correct cable to connect a Mac Mini to my 42" Sony LCD.

    I'm confused. Do I need to buy a miniDisplay to HDMI cable or a DVI to HDMI cable?

    Thanks in advance!

    It varies depending on Mac Mini you have. My Mac Mini just needs a DVI--HDMI which can be bought at most local electronics stores.

    This cable will eliminate the need to run a separate Toslink cable for sound.

    I used this cable from

    it takes the video and audio outputs from the mini and combines them into a single HDMI output ... the USB is for the power necessary to do the mix

    I've had this cable in place for 2 months now ... totally perfect!!

    this connects directly to the mini - the only thing you need "extra" is an HDMI cable to connect this to your TV or receiver
