Depending on what inputs you have on your TV this should suit your needs.

Well, you can use component or S-Video with the Mini. You can also get DVI to HDMI converters if your TV cannot accept DVI output from a computer.

The question is really what connections does your TV have? You can't really just add new connections to your TV.

For S-Video/Component connections, there is an adapter that Apple sells that converts DVI into both of those. For HDMI, there're converters out there, though I don't really know much about them. For straight DVI, you just need a DVI cable like for monitors.

You need the Apple DVI to video adapter and one S-Video cable.
