How to connect my Imac to my HDTV

I have a 2007 aluminum Imac and a 50 inch 1080p HDTV. is there anyway I could connect my Imac to the tv and control it via wireless mouse and keyboard... The rear connections on the tv are 3 hdmi, 2 component, s-video and AV.. Please let me know what is easiest, fastest, most reliable and produces the best picture.. Thanks so much!
Also I might get the new 13 inch macbook pro, what would I need in order to connect that?

I am not familiar with this new mini-DVI to HDMI cable. Sounds interesting. There is a Mac user reporting an issue in trying to use one of these in the Intel-based iMac display forum. He is using a mini-DVI to HDMI adapter and an HDMI to HDMI cable plugged into a HDMI port on his plasma TV and nothing is happening. But he is also reporting the same issue with mini-DVI to VGA adapter and an VGA to VGA cable plugged into the VGA port on his plasma TV. So the problem may not involve this mini-DVI to HDMI adapter.
I use Apple's mini-DVI to DVI adapter connected to a Belkin DVI to HDMI cable plugged into the HDMI port on my LG LCD HDTV with great success with my new Early 2009 Mac mini. The Apple mini-DVI to DVI adapter came with my Mac mini and I bought the Belkin DVI to HDMI cable at the Apple Store when I bought the Mac mini. Both are also available from the Apple Store online for US$19 each.
The MacBook Pro has a mini-DisplayPort. Apple also has a mini-DisplayPort to DVI adapter for US$29. So that could also connect with the Belkin DVI to HDMI cable.
I did Google for a mini-DisplayPort to HDMI adapter and there are a few 3rd party venders of this adapter as well.

  • How to connect my imac to my tv ?

    How do I connect my Imac to my TV ? Is there an easy way, Any body can help? I'm new to the Mac world.
    Thank you in advance

    What do you want to achieve? If the goal is to use the TV as an external monitor then get a mini display port to HDMI, DVI or VGA depending on the connections the TV has. You can find each adapter at the Apple Store either online or at a store close to you.

  • When I connect my iMac to a hdtv, the screen goes white with snow

    When I connect my imac to my samsung hdtv through DVI miniport to HDMI on the tv, the connection is fine for about 10-15 minutes and then goes white with snow. I had a macbook pro before and used to use the same connection on the same tv and it worked perfectly fine. Please help

    Nope it won't do that on the mid 2011 iMacs. What you're trying is called Target Display Mode, the only way it would work is if the PC has Thunderbolt (which no PC has) and you use a Thunderbolt cable.
    What  you can do is hook up to two external monitors on your iMac (giving it up to 3 monitors) which is very cool and can improve productivity depending on what you use your iMac for.

  • How to connect my imac to appletv

    You need to upgrade to at least 10.8 to use AirPlay: You can also upgrade to OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) for free on the App Store. You should first make sure that your iMac supports AirPlay, since you still haven't mentioned what year it is. See:

  • How to connect my iMac G4 to my network, it wont let me something about the password but I connect to a open network???Ask your question.

    Hello I have been trying to connect my iMac G4 to my network but I can't. I have a secure network with a password and is not let me in but I can connect to an open network with no password??? anybody can help???

    AirPort card in iMac G4 does not support strong WiFi encryption.
    I think WPA is the maximum for that WiFi card.
    If you have WPA2 in your WiFi network, you need to downgrade (not recommended)or wired connect the iMac G4.

  • Connecting 2010 iMac to 46" HDTV Overscan Issues

    I have an 2010 iMac and I have purchased a Display Port to HDMI adapter and a HDMI cable connecting to my Sony Bravia 46" HDTV. My question has to deal with overscan issues when it is displaying on the TV, How exactly can I resolve this problem.
    Thank You

    It sounds like your Mac is using your TV as a second monitor and has expanded your desktop to encompass both monitors. If you move your mouse to the edge of your Macs screen, and keep going a little bit, the mouse cursor will appear on your TV. Am not sure which edge this will work on, right or left, but give it a try.
    You can also open the Display preference pane andset where the two monitors share an edge, or change the configuration to have the second monitor (your TV) mirror your main desktop.
    Mirroring is what many people use with TVs so they can easily view movies, photos from ther Mac on the TV with ease.

  • How to connect my iMAC to the time capsule(with cable)?!

    I bought the Time Capsule Machine and I tried more than 8 times to do the backup.
    Always it takes some days and doesn't finish. So, I thought maybe the problem could be the connection without cables. But I don't know how to do it, I tried without success.

    Thank you for helping me, but I already tried and didn't work... Maybe I put it on the wrong place, but if I did it, I really don't know where is the wright place...
    There are 2 different kind of place to put on the time capsule and only one on the iMac... I tried both!
    Thank you again

  • How to connect my iMac to AV receiver?

    I want to watch movies on my iMac but use Cambridge audio Aero 5.1 speakers through AV receiver Cambridge Audio Azur 751R. How do I connect my Mac to the av receiver? What cables/connectors do I need?
    thank you for your help!

    To do this the right way, get an AppleTV ($59 refurbished from Apple's online store), set up the AppleTV and  connect it to the AppleTV's Optical out to the Receiver & HDMI out to your TV. Then set up Home Sharing in iTunes on your iMac and finally wireless stream movies to the big screen TV from the AppleTV. Anything else is a kluge and won't work as well as  you would like. If you have a 2011 or later iMac  you can also use the AppleTV to mirror the iMac's content to the BigScreen TV.

  • How to connect new iMac to TV???

    I'm not very computer savvy... is there an easy way to connect my new iMac to my tv directly with one cable, like and HDMI cable or something? Or is it much more complicated than this?

    If it's a 27-inch iMac, it has a Mini DisplayPort for video output. You need an adapter like this one
    [Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter (female) Cable for Apple Mac| ref=sr11?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1258064334&sr=8-1]
    From the end of the adapter, use an HDMI cable to go to your HDTV.
    However, this is a video output, so it does not carry audio. If you want audio to come from the HDTV speakers, you will need to run a separate cable from the iMac's audio output port (the one for headphones) to the HDTV audio input corresponding to the HDMI input.

  • FAQ or "how to" connect to iMac with Airport????

    Is there a checklist or such that shows how to allow a Windows laptop to connect with the Airport Extreme on an iMac? It works fine with multiple iPod touches and a Sony PSP but I'm unable to solve why the Windows laptops won't connect. Each laptop (there's been 3) detects the network but will not connect.

    Is the Windows wireless compatible with the type of wireless network being created by the AirPort Extreme base station (AEBS)?
    Is the Windows wireless compatible with the type of wireless encryption being used by the AEBS?

    I have an 2010 iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), and I would like to hook it up to my 50" Plasma TV . What cables do I used? And do I hook it up to a splitter or a switch? Beside the HDMI, I also have two other connections on my TV,   RS-232C INPUT  and  RGB INPUT. Which one do I use? I have an adapter, (my daughter didn't used it), it's a Mini DisplayPort / Female VGA Video Cable

    Well you must by a mini Display port to HDMI adapter from Apple and connect the HDMI to your tv.
    Here's a demo video.
