    I have a 15" unibody MBP and a Philips HD TV with a DVI-I port (no HDMI)

    How can I connect my MBP (with MiniDisplayPort) to the TV so I can watch HD content?

    Thanks in advance

    Would that work?
    I've read somewhere that if you chain multiple cables, it won't work anymore.
    I'm not quite the tech expert though, so if you tell me it'll work, i'll take your word for it and order the cables ;)

    Any way you go, you'll have to get an adapter. The only reservation I have is about the I part of DVI-I. I have a feeling the apple adapter is dvi-d, which wouldn't be compatible. I think you'll need to get a 3rd party mini displayport to DVI-I adapter and a DVI-I cable.
