Easiest Way to Go From Mac Book to HDMI Hi Def TV

Can someone post what basic cables one would need to go from the mini DVI out to HDMI on the TV? People say to go from mini dvi to dvi, and than from dvi to hdmi. This doesn't make sense to me because wouldn't the end of the dvi to dvi end in the wrong end (male or female, I'm not sure).
Thanks!

Hi David,
I'm not 100% certain on this, but - I think that both the connector formats you are considering (DVI & HDMI) are similar to the common audio interconnect standard - RCA Phono - in the sense that they all rely on all appliances having panel mount female versions of the connector, and all interconnect cables having trailing plug variations. Generally speaking, 'genderbender' style adaptors are available for all types for those unusual set-ups or non-standard signal routings.
For the situation you describe, it sounds like you already have the best advice. Use an Apple Mini DVI to DVI (male to female because you are effectively replicating the appliance port) adaptor & any of several available DVI to HDMI cables (male to male interconnect).
Bear in mind that although the HDMI connection standard supports audio, DVI does not - so you will need to consider a path for the audio too. IMHO, if your stereo is near your TV, tape a fibre optic to the video lead and use the optical out from the MacBook headphone socket.
Cheers, Stephen.

    Another way. You can use a USB flash drive & the camera connection kit.
    Plug the USB flash drive into your computer & create a new folder titled DCIM. Then put your movie/photo files into the folder. The files must have a filename with exactly 8 characters long (no spaces) plus the file extension (i.e., my-movie.mov; DSCN0164.jpg).
    Now plug the flash drive into the iPad using the camera connection kit. Open the Photos app, the movie/photo files should appear & you can import. (You can not export using the camera connection kit.)

  • What is the easiest way to upgrade from OS X 10.4.11 to 10.5 Leopard

    what is the easiest way to upgrade from OS X 10.4.11 to 10.5 Leopard

    You should consider this:
    Here are the minimum specs your Mac will need to run Leopard, according to Apple:
    Intel, G5, or 867MHz+ G4 processor
    512 megs of RAM MINIMUM (though if you only have 512 megs of RAM you may actually find you need more.)
    DVD drive (Leopard is shipping on a DVD, and your Mac needs to read it to be able to install it)
    9GB of free disk space
    Hope this helps

              I did authorized in the store, but still did not transfer to the mac. Could you please to tell me what should I do it? Please let me know that as soon as possible.
    Regards,
    Thank you

    The iPad is fine.  But the computer you're syncing with needs to be authorised with the Apple ID that was used to buy the material on the iPad.  You do this by picking the 'Authorize' item from the menu in iTunes and entering the account name and password.

    can I interrupt a migration from Mac Book Pro to iMac and what are the consequences

    Les:
    Here are some options:
    • You could copy the data file to your laptop, work on it, and update the file on the iMac when you are back.
    • You can use an application like Log Me In to access your home computer from your laptop.
    • You can use DropBox. Install it on both computers, place your data file in a folder on the iMac, access it and work on it on your laptop and it will be automatically updated on your computer at home, even if it is not turned on, as soon as it is connected to the internet.
    Please do post back with further questions or comments.

    Hi, Can anyone encounter the problem that you couldn't update your apps from Mac book pro??
    Currently, my mac can't update any of the software from App store as well as bulit in software like garageband.

    yeah...
    i did that but it didn't work.
    Every times, i click on the software updates, software updates dialog box is popping up and
    checking for new updates.
    After that, acknowledged me whether i want to update or not.
    once, i click on "install".
    it appears following message.
    "A network error has occurred. Check your Internet connection, and then try again."
    i totally can access to Internet as i can browser all the websites.

  • Why can't i airdrop from mac book pro to iPhone 5s

    why can't i airdrop from mac book pro to iPhone 5s

    You can't currently AirDrop between OS X and iOS. This is partly because OS X supports many file types that iOS wouldn't know what to do with if you AirDropped them onto an iPhone.
    This will change in the next OS X and iOS that Apple recently demonstrated. When those OSs become final and are released to the public, you will be able to AirDrop between OS X and iOS. Apparently iOS will be more flexible about handling file types, as shown by the future ability to create your own sharing folder in iCloud instead of having iCloud being individual to each app.

It seems I shall or can start it from the Internet and wipe the Harddrive?

    What is the simplest way to clear out the cache from my Mac Book Pro?

    I will also endorse Thomas_r's comments.  If anything, I would use OnyX, which is a well known maintenance tool.
    Beware that there is also an "onyxmac" website, which is malware and to be avoided...
    The OnyX developer is Titanium software, here:
