Is it possible to use a 9 pin to 15 pin adapter, to plug my Mac Mini VGA output into the 9-pin RS-232 input on my Digital Set-Top-Box?

Cheers,
Phill.

No.

VGA is a video signal.

RS-232 is a (fairly old now) serial data link standard (the forerunner of USB). Completely different and totally incompatible, whatever adapter you get.

What are you trying to achieve?
