What is the best way to use my TV as monitor with my MacBook?

by on January 24, 2011

Q: I want to use my TV as another monitor screen for my MacBook, what is the best way to accomplish this? Apple TV seems a good idea, but I’m unsure if it will allow me to 1. use the TV like another screen, or if it will just allow me to stream photos and videos… and 2. if it will allow me to use it with more than one tv in my house – your help is greatly appreciated, thank you!

    The best way to accomplish this is to run a DVI to HDMI cable from your MacBook to your TV. Then just run some audio cables from your laptop to your TV or audio receiver for sound, and you’re all set!
