Ask Max: How To Connect Apple TV To Your Television

Asked on 10/01/2008:

Is ™Apple TV™ an actual TV brand name of Apple? Or is it just an Apple receiver type component that turns and brand name or generic name TV into an able broadcasting unit?

I am trying to figure the easiest way to use my late model TV (Sony) as a monitor from my MacBook Pro wireless computer. Is it as easy as getting the Apple avi to s-cable and mini stereo jack to RCA?


The Apple TV is a special device that connects to HD TVs allowing you to view your iTunes and iPhoto content from your TV. The correct way to connect your MacBook to the analog ports on your TV is with the Apple Mini-DVI to Video Adapter and the S-Video cable and mini stereo jack to RCA cables you mentioned. You may also use an Apple Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter with a DVI to HDMI cable to connect to the HDMI port on your HDTV, if you have one.
