Hello,
I want to connect my iMac with a Mini-Dvi port to a TV and want to hear the sound from the TV.
What adapters will i need to hook it up to a HDMI port, and will this connection also produce sound on the TV?
If that can't be done can I use a s-video adapter, and what about sound?
Last, do they have longer cables so you don't need your computer right beside the TV?
Thanks

You'll need Apple's mini-DVI to DVI adaptor plus a DVI-to-HDMI cable
(or a DVI-to-HDMI adaptor and an ordinary HDMI cable).

No. There are no audio signals on the mini-DVI connector. You'll have
to run a separate audio cable from the iMac's audio output to the TV.
The iMac's audio output is a "combo jack" that supports either analog
or digital (optical S/PDIF) audio. Your TV probably has an analog audio
input associated with one of its HDMI channels.
