What if your HDTV does not have an HDMI cable input?
Use the component input.

I have a Sony KDL-52XBR4 connected to my Mac-Mini via a DVI to HDMI cable and it works fine. All I did was change the resolution to get it working. I'm pretty sure is in the 1…280x800 range (I'm moving and the TV is in transit so I can't check at the moment). BUT, it does work and I use it all the time to watch iTunes & surf on Safari to watch Hulu. There is one quirk, the MacMini will invert the colors periodically, but I found a script someone else wrote that resets the display settings.
Answer . Yes. Your HD-DVD player should also have the five different colored cables, that can be plugged into almost any television set. This is an acceptable alternative, …and most people cant really tell the difference between that and the $100 cable
Yes. You can. You can also use optional PS3 component cables for the same results if the HDTV does not have HDMI and can have 480i picture resolution with the A/V cable that c…ame with the PS3 But it looks awful. Probably worse than it would on a traditional CRT tube television. Not true this is about the brand and quality of the HDTV and not the PS3 although it is true HDMI cables make a world of difference.
The TV decides whether it is a "i" or a "p". The cable will pass both types of signals.
Yes, a DVI input will usually accept an HDMI signal via an adapter cable but make sure the TV input is HDCP compliant otherwise protected content, such as Blu-ray movies, will… not be viewable. Also be aware that DVI inputs do not carry any sound, so you will need to connect the PS3 audio with a separate cable to the TV or amplifier. Many TVs have a pair of phono inputs for this purpose but may need to be assigned as the audio connection when DVI input is selected.
As HDTV made its entrance to the market, HDMI was not available. Because of this, there are a handful of HD televisions that have only analog HD inputs or perhaps RGB inputs. …HDMI was introduced by the television industry as a small and convenient connector for video, audio and control lines between a source and display. The interface is fully digital and happens to support an encryption system that prevents the signal being accessed for unauthorized recording and distribution. Unlike all other video interfaces, HDMI connectors are used under a commercial licence that restricts the use of them. One of the effective prohibitions is to use the connector in a device that decodes encrypted material to any un-encrypted signal such as analog HD links. For the unfortunate few that have HD televisions without HDMI ports, it is unlikely that there will be a method of watching commercial HD content. It is certainly worth contacting the manufacturer to see if they are able to offer upgrades that may solve the problem. OR if the TV has 'component' inputs, use them and the picture will look great, if that doesn't work, use the S-connector. You will still have use audio cables.
No. Consumer VCRs are not compatible.
Why would you want to, I just use it as a dildo.
No you have to plug in the 45tr wire and you shalll have hd but you need a usb port
What do you need to connect a mac mini to a hdtv that doesn't have HDMI but does have a monitor input?
i figured it out and it's VGA
VGA to HDMI won't happen unfortunately. VGA is an analog signal whereas HDMI is digital. There is no VGA to HDMI connector that supports the conversion. Note that DVI is both… digital and analog. The digital signal is compatible with HDMI and the analog signal is compatible with VGA. That means that it is possible to obtain a VGA to DVI cable and a DVI to HDMI cable. When connected together, there will be a VGA connector at one end and HDMI at the other. Don't bother to try it though. Analog signals won't ever make it to the HDMI connector. Most televisions have a component video input which will often handle RGB signals. As VGA is an RGB signal, this may well be the best solution. The instruction manual will tell you if VGA can be accepted. If the television can't take VGA directly, then consider a USB video card. They are available with DVI or HDMI outputs as well as VGA.
Any HDMI cable that has an HDMI logo will work. All HDMI products need to be tested and licensed by the HDMI organization. If a cable passes the test, it works. If HDMI cable…s work, they work as well as ANY other HDMI cable. The digital nature of the signal means that high cost cables do not deliver a better quality image than low cost cables. So, select the lowest cost cable in the store - it will be every bit as good as the most expensive.
The best HDMI cable is not necessary or recommended. Walmart sells Sony PS3 HDMI cables and you to even upgrade to a higher cost and quality Sony HDMI Cable. That is what I di…d only because Walmart was out of the PS3 HDMI cables when I got the PS3 went to purchase a HDMI cable. I purchased a Flat Sony HDMI cable for $45. You can pay over $100 for an HDMI cable and still not have the best and not be able to tell the reception from another name brand cable sold for $20. I plugged other devices (Sony Camera, Cable Box) into the Sony BR6 HDTV with Belkin HDMI cables and get fine reception.
HDTV - High definition television. HD television is any signal that conforms to the HD standards. That means any signal of 720 lines, 1080 lines or (now obsolete) 1035 lines. …There are a number of different frame rates associated with each resolution so there are about 25 separate HD formats worldwide. HDMI - High definition multi-media interface. This is the accepted standard for domestic HD signal connections between receivers and televisions. The single cable carries video and audio signals as well as other data. It also supports encrypted signals using HDCP (high definition copy protection) which prevents unauthorized users extracting and copying the signal. HDMI also supports standard definition signals and many digital computer display signals (it is compatible with DVI digital signals).

Because you are trying to display an image or video without HDCP support from the video card or an older HDTV. Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Discuss:Why_does_a_new_…25_ft_hdmi_cable_not_work_from_computer_to_a_hdtv#ixzz1HDJhTy3x .
The most common reason is that you have not configured the video card of your computer to display an image on the HDMI output.

To view something in HD you must use a HDMI cable. _____________________________ A 1080i signal, which is the highest video quality of HDTV in North America, can be trans…mitted on component video cables, although many HD boxes are losing this type of output, and Blu-Ray players made in the past few years have the component video output crippled so that the signal is pushed down to 480p (DVD quality) on this connection.
