How do i connect my iMac to my tv to see movies with wire

how do i connect my iMac to my tv to see movies with wire

Hey rodskc10,
Thanks for the question! Based on the iMac model and TV you have, you’ll need to pick up a compatible cable. There are a few options that can be found on the Apple Online Store:
Mac Cables - Computer Audio & Video Adapters, Network Cables & More - Apple Store (U.S.)
http://store.apple.com/us/mac/mac-accessories/cables#!
For example, if you have the latest iMac and an HDTV, a mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable should do the job (you’ll connect this to the Thunderbolt port, which is backwards compatible with mini DisplayPort).
For additional information, see this article:

Thanks,

    The Apple solution is to register for and use separate Apple ID's on both devices and Apple software:
    Purchase FaceTime from the Apple Mac App store.  (US$0.99 for Version 1.1 last time I checked).
    The US iPad 2 already includes the FaceTime App.
    I've read that Skype also works with a Skype app for the iPad, but I have not tried it.

  • How can I connect my iMac to a TV for playback of videos? My TV does not have HDMI.

    How can I connect my iMac to a TV for playback of videos? My TV does not have HDMI.

    You need to find out what video out you have on your iMac, and what kind of video inputs there are on your TV.
    It will help to know exactly what model iMac and exactly what make/model TV you have.
    Depending on the exact model iMac you have, it may have miniVGA, miniDVI, miniDisplayPort or Thunderbolt output.  Your TV may have composite, S-video, component, DVI, VGA or HDMI inputs.  Once you confirm what kind of ports your iMac and TV have, then we can probably suggest the correct cable or adapter so you can connect them to each other.

  • Recently I bought a mini DVI to HDMI converter  from eBay for my iMac 21.5 Mid 2011, but only later I realised that it does not have the mini DVI port in that. How can I connect my iMac to a LG smart TV through a HDMI cable?

    This is the picture of all the ports from my iMac
    This is the mini DVI to HDMI converter which I bought from ebay. And I have the HDMI cable to connect it to my TV
    Could anyone please suggest me a solution how I could connect my iMac to the LG smart TV? Also I need to know if this transmits the audio as well to the smart TV?
    Suggestions are welcomed. I really appreciate and thank you for your time

    I would suggest looking into a Thunderbolt to HDMI connector. In this case, you may be able to use the TV as an external monitor. For this option, please confirm through additional research. I have not tested it personally.
    You can also use an Apple TV, which connects with HDMI. In this case, you can use Airplay Mirroring. Not all Macs support Airplay Mirroring, so you need to check first. I have a Mid-2011 27" iMac, and it supports Airplay Mirroring. I don't use it often because my TV is in another room, but I just tried it and it worked. It had to change the screen resolution to work well, so I don't know if I would want to use it as my day to day monitor. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht5404

    how do i connect my imac and my macbook so they are in sync and up to date with the same documents?

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
    There isn't a way to connect both Macs with a cable to keep your documents updated on them. However, if you need all your documents updated on both Macs, you can use a cloud service as iCloud or Dropbox to sync your documents. Preferably, I recommend Dropbox because it can sync all type of files between both computers > http://www.dropbox.com
    Another thing you can do is to buy an external disk and put your documents here

  • How do I connect and detect a high frquency pulse (0-3500hz) with a variable pulse voltage (0v low,5-10v high), on a SC-2345 connected to a PCI-6224?

    How do I connect and detect a high frquency pulse (0-3500hz) with a variable pulse voltage (0v low,5-10v high),  on a SC-2345 connected to a PCI-6224?  Labview doesn't generate a waveform if I try to graph the signal, and my analog input doesn'y recognize that the signal is even pulsing, only that it has a voltage.  Some advice would be much appreciated.
    Thanks in advance,
    Garrett

    Hi Garrett,
    It sounds like you want to do Frequency Measurements of a signal that is somewhat digital.
    There are two ways you can really do this:
    Wire your signal to the counter input and use the Digital Frequency examples (Help > Find Examples > Browse > Hardware Input and Output > DAQmx > Counter Measurements > Digital Frequency)
    Continue taking analog measurements and use some sort of logic to determine where you are getting rising and falling edges.
    I would recommend doing method #1, but you must determine which one is the best for your system.
    If you want to connect to the counter pins then you will find the
    terminals located on the side of your SC-2345.  If you don't need
    to condition your signals then simply wire everything into the proper
    pins for your counter (below).

  • How do I connect my imac to tv

    I have connected the HDMI3 cable to my tv and imac and I have the screen saver on the tv.  How do I connect a utube video on my imac to the tv please?

    To move the browser window to the TV, usually all you have to do is drag its titlebar to the right side, and it will move that way.     Then once it is mostly there, click on the green circle in the upper left corner of the window.
    If it isn't dragging to the TV screen, make sure the arrangement in Apple menu -> System Preferences -> Displays appears thus:
    You do not want to mirror.  And the white bar is on the screen that has the menubar and the Dock.  Don't touch the white bar, unless you want to move it to a different display.  Just drag the blue in the arrangement above.
    That way if you drag the window to the right it will appear on the display without the menubar.
