    Hey everyone, im trying to get my new MBP on to my TV, i have the old apple DVI to S-Video and the yellow Video connector, but this adapter wont fit on my mini display to dvi adapter. Anybody know one that would fit or where i can buy it?

    Don't think it is possible with the new MacBooks - Apple doesn't offer a Mini Display Port - S-Video adapter on their store.

    i was afraid that would be the case, do you think it would be possible to go from the mini display to dvi, then from that dvi to svideo?

    In theory, it's possible.

    No, it's not possible.
    Your best bet is MiniDP->VGA and VGA->S-video

    Do you think that apple will be making a MiniDP to S-video soon, or should i just buy two more adapters?

    I would doubt it. S-Video is too old for Apple to still support it.
