    Has anyone have tried connecting their MBP to a HD Plasma Monitor? I was asked to do a Keynote presentation using this setup - I believed mini-DV to HDMI would be my best workaround.

    I've a mini-DV to VGA as alternative.

    Any inputs? I've read somewhere that I might need to port the audio separately.

    I've been using mini dvi to Hdmi for years and so far so good. Audio will be ported seperately.

    My MBP is connected to my Sammy 32in via Mini-DVI to VGA adaptor. Of course the audio is connected to my receiver via mini jack.

    Like antski's setup, I'm using my MBP as a docked unit using a mini DVI to HDMI cable to connect to my 32 inch Samsung LCD TV. Works great except the seperate audio part. You really have to use external audio for that. Cheers.

    Just bought a MiniDisplay Port to HDMI adapter in Apple Singapore (D' Best) for 44 Sing Dollars! It worked flawlessly in my Samsung Series 6 32" at 1080p!

    Never tried the Audio yet, I'll update this thread if I find time to try it out.
