I've always wondered how to do this. Is it possible? My TVs are LCD screens, both less than 2 years old, one is a Samsung and the other is an Insignia (both purchased from Best Buy). I'm using a MacBook Pro that's less than a year old. What wires do I need?

Many thanks!

If you have a MacBook Pro, you would need to get a DVI to HDMI cable if you want HD Quality. Basically you would need a DVI to whatever format you want to run it on. You connect the DVI to your MacBook Pro & the other end to the TV.

It depends on the connections your TV has. You might be able to run a straight DVI/VGA cable into the TV.

Check your documentation to verify.
