    I was recently web browsing around when i saw this website: http://www.emulaunch.com/

    And on the website it says that you can bring your games onto your tv. Im not really clear on how to do this, or what kind of cables/wires I need in order to do this. Can someone help me on doing this?

    I do not have a macbook, only an iMac. My iMac is kinda far away from my tv(around 10-13 feet and is facing at a different angle than my tv)

    If you have a flatscreen HDTV chances are it will have some kind of computer input. Mine has a DVI input which I use with my Mac Mini. So it'd just be a case of getting the right lead for your iMac. I believe you can get a DVI-HDMI converter cable from somewhere should your TV have that.

    If you have a CRT TV, then you are limited to using either an S-Video connection or composite. If this is the case, then I probably wouldn't bother as it tends to look pretty awful!
