    I have the iMac 27. I want to connect my iMac to my TV so I can use Front Row and play my stored vids via the TV. Can anyone tell me if this is possible. I have Sky+ and my TV has a spare scart and AV inputs.

    Thanks Simon

    As long as you can get the right adapters it is possible. The output on your iMac is Mini-Display port. I doubt there is a direct mdp-scart adapter, but you could probably do a mdp->vga->scart chain.

    Where to buy vga to scart?

    Have you found the vga -> scart chain, because i can not find an appropriate cable in the Apple Store.

    There are Scart adapters that take Composite and S-Video as input, thus all you need is MDP to VGA, and then VGA to Composite/S-Video.

    Have you also considered the new Apple TV? Not sure if that would work for you - but wasn't sure if you'd seen it?

    With a wireless router, you can effectively stream stuff from your local Mac's iTunes library to your apple tv box - which you connect to your TV. Your apple TV box only has HDMI output unfortunately - but I used a similar set-up with a HDMI to DVGA converter when I ran out of HDMI inputs on my previous TV...

    Not sure if it helps, but thought I would mention it
