What cable do I need to connect my Mac Book Pro to my HDMI LCD projector, for film / presentations etc..?
I have a VGA cable with adaptor but it rarely seems to pick up the input signal and messes with the computers functionality. Is a Mini Belkin to HDMI a better option?
No, this will definitely NOT work with a VCR.
If you want to send video & audio FROM your MacBook Pro TO your VCR, then you need:
1. For video: An adapter for whatever type of external display port is on your MacBook Pro to composite video. Apple has all the various types covered, but you need to know which type was used on your particular MacBook Pro (they've changed over the years).
2. A composite video cable (RCA phono plugs) OR an S-video cable (if your VCR supports S-video).
3. For audio: An audio cable with a standard 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone TRS jack (aka "stereo mini-jack") for the Mac end (connects into your Mac's headphone port), and dual RCA phono plugs (red & white) for the audio in ports on the VCR.
If you're trying to get video FROM your VCR in TO your Mac, then you'll need some sort of video interface for your Mac, since the MacBook Pro doesn't have any built-in video input capability. See the "Elgato Video Capture" product in the "Video" section of the Apple Store for one such example of this.

Yes, using a mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter at the mini DisplayPort. Outputs both video and audio through the mini DisplayPort on the recently released MacBook Air.

How can I connect a year-old MBP to my Plasma TV and get the picture AND sound on the TV? The TV does not have any HDMI ports.
I have tried so many kits from Radio Shack and the Apple Store. I do not think my MBP can take an HDMI cable so I do not understand how this Apple HDMI to HDMI Cable works for some people. I know my plasma TV does not have any HDMI outlets which surprised me Could I have missed them? I highly doubt it but I thought all the HD LCD/Plasma TVs had HDMI outlets. I was thinking then I need the old fashioned red-white-yellow-black cables that used to come with old stereos. I would be so grateful if someone could help me. I was able to get an adapter kind of cable and that worked for the picture but there was no sound coming out the TV. Any ideas? Any Apple article that helps? With the questions posted here, it sounds so easy, but how do they get the HDMI cable to hook into their MBP? I have another 1.5 year-old MBP and I did not see any port that would take an HDMI cable.

All MacBook's have something on them called a Mini Display Port, which is the port that allows you to send video out of you MBP to a TV or a display. You have to get an adapter that allows you to get from a Mini DP, to a more universal video cable to connect to an external video source. Assuming your TV had an HDMI port on it, you would be able to connect your MacBook Pro to your TV with the Mini DP to HDMI adapter. Depending on which model MBP you have, it may or may not support audio as well. However, since you do not have a HDMI port available on your TV, you might need to get a different adapter to connect it to your TV. If you have a VGA or DVI port on the back of your TV, then you can get a Mini DP to VGA or Mini DP to DVI adapter, and use a VGA or DVI cable to connect it to your TV. The only issue with this is that audio is not supported by these cables, and you would need to use the headphone jack on your MBP to send audio out to your TV as well.

Yes. Any HDMI cable that supports 1080p is considered 'high speed'.
High Speed HDMI cable is designed and tested to handle video resolutions of 1080p and beyond, including advanced display technologies such as 4K, 3D, and Deep Color.

I'm considering a "Xories" HDMI to SCART converter so I can connect the new Apple TV to my TV with SCART connections. The spec though for the converter suggest HDMI 1080i, rather than 1080p, to avoid flicker...to that end even though the new Apple TV can handle 1080p can it be nonetheless scaled down to only 1080i?

Will this one have sound when I connect it from my newest macbook air to my HDTV?
I just bought the mini displayport to HDMI and I'm just wondering if I can just plug this one to connect the macbook air and HDTV to have the sound in my TV. Thanks.

I just got my new air today and bought a mini display port to HDMI cable from the apple shop.
Firstly,the apple hdmi to hdmi cable has both hdmi ends, so you will not connect directly from your air to TV unless you buy an extra convertor。
The simplest way is to get a mini display port to HDMI cable instead, it does carry both video and audio to your TV.
I was wondering whether my cable carries audio before I buy it, and one of a apple stuff told me it does not.
However, I bought it finally and now I am 100% sure that it does carry audio!
But after you connect it you have to set the output as TV(HDMI) in the reference--sound.
Just set your mind at rest man, I think people who say it does not carry audio probably they had not even used it, or did not know how to set it up.
Finally, I love my new air, it is the forth mac the I owned.
