    USB to HDMI?

    Was looking at trying to hook the computer up to the tvto watch the game this Saturday from Cyclones.tv. Was looking at Monoprice to try to find a cable but don't see anything. Anyone have advice on what I need for this to work?

    What about DVI to HDMI, then run your sound via the audio headphone out of the computer? I'm assuming you have a DVI (i.e. digital monitor) connector on your computer?

    See here.

    Thanks, I'll try the DVI to HDMI. My computer is 5 years old and know I don't have HDMI out. My wife has a 2 year old Macbook pro, maybe it has HDMI out? I'll take a look before I order another cable.

    The Macbook won't have HDMI out, but it has display port out....and you can get a display port to HDMI adapter from Monoprice from $7. That's what I use, and it does the job for audio too.....
