The MacBook Pro provides many options for digital video output with a Mini DisplayPort adapter. The Mini DisplayPort can be found next to the FireWire port of your MacBook Pro.

There are three main adapter types for use with your television: Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter, Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter, and Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter. The specific adapter that works best for you will depend on your television model, although most new HD televisions will accept the Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter or Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter.
