In order to connect my MBP to my TV, what cord do I need that goes from the TV to the DVI adapter? Thanks.

if your TV has HDMI, get a mini-DVI to HDMI adapter and HDMI cable.... total cost $10 from MONOPRICE

which macbook pro do you have? the new unibody?


If so (and your TV has HDMI), you will need this minidisplayport->DVI adapter in addition to a DVI->HDMI cable (or adapter).

it's more than a little ridiculous.

I didn't mess w/the resolution; didn't have time. This weekend I'll have more time to play with it.

i think Samsung has a zoom setting called "just" that should adjust the image to fit the edges exactly.
