The connector on your MacBook is DVI.
The connection is great and the image quality increase is noticeable compared to VGA.

i dont think they make a crimp svideo.
i know rs has an adapter thats under $10 Sayen Active Member I had the same problem Van describes this summer, and I think I found a similar adapter at Fry's Electronics for around$5. Usually you have to hunt around in the component areas, and stay away from the big displays. I'll go out on a limb and venture that for most home applications a cheap $5 cable is going to be equivalent to a$40+ cable. And don't believe those displays where they hook up two TVs to show you the difference between two cables, unless they let you adjust the picture and look at the physical cables.

Worse yet is the iPod crap. An iPod adapter for TV sells on the accessories isle for about $50. A replacement cable for a camcorder, which does the same thing and is just color coded wrong, can be bought of ebay for about$3. Actually, even iPod stuff is cheaper on ebay, and you can still get it new.

although I have found monster cable to be a lot better than some brands out there...however, some cheap cables have been just as good as monster cable too.
