I’m about to buy a new 32″ HDTV, to be in the living room. How do I connect my desktop Mac, which is in the office at back of my apartment to the TV?
I have a similar setup with my MacBook Pro and I'm using the Moshi Mini DisplayPort to HDMI Adapter: http://store.moshimonde.com/hdmi-adapter-1.html
Hope you have the DisplayPort on your Mac, it's really simple if you do.
You can hook it up threw your thunder bolt port if your mac has one. the newest models do. or invest in a sling player for about 100 bucks. or go tot the apple store and ask for a display from mac to a hdmi. Hope this helps.
