    Does your TV had a DVI or VGA connection on it?

    In for answers. I was disappointed to find out that this stuff didn't come included. I think my Powerbook G4 came with hookups for VGA and component video.

    never heard of a dvi to rca composite

    but if you get the dvi to vga adapter, you can find hundreds of vga to rca adapters on ebay (for like 5 bucks). Just type in "vga to rca" in ebay search and get on of those. For sound, you have to get a seperate cable: search for "1/8 to rca" and get the male to male.
