    I have a MBP that is almost 2 years old now, so it is not the new unibody one. However, I want to be able to hook up my mbp to my tv to use as a second monitor and to watch movies on.

    What cable do I need to be able to do this? I have plenty of hdmi inputs on the tv so I will probably use that unless there is a better way.

    Also, I have never used a second monitor so are there settings for when you hook one up to decide whether the monitor will mirror your screen or just be an extension to which you can drag windows to (if that makes sense).

    Depending on where I put my TV I may want to use the tv screen as my only monitor but other times I will want to have two monitors.

    Thanks in advance.
