This Male Mini-DVI to Female HDMI Adapter has one 32 pin Mini-DVI Male and one 19-pin HDMI Female connector, allowing the video signal from a Mini DVI, like an Apple MacBook or iMac Computer and output it to an HDMI equipped TV set or A/V Receiver. This adapter can also be used in combination with the Apple DVI to ADC adapter to support Apple flat panel studio or cinema displays. It connects your Mac laptop, iMac or other laptops to LCD and Plasma displays with an HDMI input.

DO NOT BUY THE WRONG ADAPTER! Macs have now a mini-DVI output and a mini-displayport output. Read you manual on what you have before you buy this. See the bottom of this page for the other product if you are on the wrong adapter.
NOTE 1: This product passes video only. This adapter will support audio only if your source device allows audio output through the Mini-DVI interface. If you’re not sure, please check with the manufacturer or website, to confirm if your device allows audio out through the mini-DVI interface.
NOTE 2: The new MacBook and MackBook PRO Uni-Body that started shipping late 2008, early 2009 have mini-DisplayPort connectors, not mini-DVI so this product won’t work.
NOTE 3: The MAC’s announced in March 2009 may have the mini-DVI connector so check your manual to make sure it does.
