Again, note that the latest Mac Book Pro models have an HDMI port, so you wouldn’t need an adapter on one of those Mac Book Pro models, you can just directly connect an HDMI cable between the Mac and the TV.
Establishing the initial connection is remarkably straightforward and is just a matter of physically connecting the cables to one another from the Mac to the TV.
Unless the Mac is hooked up to some great external speakers, you’ll almost certainly want to set audio output to go through the TV’s speakers rather than the tiny ones built into the computer.
Note about HDMI adapters and audio support: there are many options available on Amazon and some are very cheap, many of which will not actually carry audio despite advertising that they do.
If you have a spare Mac, you can even turn it into a full-time media center, server, and torrents box, and the Mac Mini is particularly great for that purpose.
Not all movies or videos will play at true full screen, and sometimes you’ll end up with a large black border around the sides of the video.
We’re going to focus on connecting any newer Mac to any fairly modern TV by way of a physical HDMI connection, thus, a few third party accessories will be necessary for the task.
The result will be the Mac exporting both video and audio signals to the TV.
