Connecting iMac to TV - Cables and Converters
To display images from your iMac to your TV, you will require:
• Mini DVI to Video adaptor (available from Apple)
• RCA Video cable
• Stereo RCA audio cable
• Stereo RCA to 3.5mm adaptor
Note that often the single yellow video and red and white audio RCA cables are attached to each other.
Before beginning, you will need to confirm that your TV has the RCA connections – the majority of TVs manufactured since the mid 1990s are equipped with this input method.
To proceed, connect the Mini DVI to Video adaptor to your iMac’s DVI connector, and to this connect your RCA Video cable.
Next, slot the Stereo RCA to 3.5mm adaptor into your iMac and connect to this the red and white Stereo RCA audio cables.
You should now be able to view videos played on your iMac but displayed on your TV, although you may need to alter the input selection on your TV to display the signal from the RCA Video cable.
