Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter
Every Mac with a Mini DisplayPort allows you to connect an external display or projector using an adapter. You can use an external display as your main workspace or to extend your desktop, or you can work in mirrored mode with a projector so you can view what your audience sees.
Use the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter to connect your Mac to a standard analogue monitor, projector, or LCD that uses a VGA connector or cable. Review the documentation or check with the manufacturer of your monitor to make sure you're choosing the right adapter.

Yes... assuming your LCD TV has a VGA input. Most do, so that shouldn't be a concern. Be aware that Yes... assuming your LCD TV has a VGA input. Most do, so that shouldn't be a concern. Be aware that you will have some resolution restrictions with your TV. If you get a message similar to "signal is out of range" you might have to adjust the screen resolution and refresh rate for the secondary display. You should be able to find the acceptable display information in the documentation that came with your TV. <br/>Good Luck!
