How do I connect my TV to my iMac to watch Hulu?

My TV is a 2006 Olevia and does NOT have an HDMI port. I am looking for some kind of adapter to use so that I do not have to buy a new TV. I appreciate any and all feedback!

That Olevia has

In reply to: Full Model of Olevia and iMac

"HDTV Component Input: Y, Pb/Cb, Pr/Cr x 2 (480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i)
Composite Video Input: RCA x 2
S-Video Input: 4-pin DIN x 3
Audio Input: RCA L/R x 6
DVI-Input: DVI - I x 1
VGA Input: D-Sub - 15 x 1 "

Your iMac looks similar/same to
which has "Mini DisplayPort output with support for DVI, dual-link DVI, and VGA video (requires adapters, sold separately)"

Keeping in mind that that no sound will be sent over either DVI or VGA you want to try DVI and VGA for this connection.

Example adapters (may need cables still.)

Hope this helps,

Thank you for the info!

If I am understanding you correctly, then I would buy one of the adapters you listed above and then ALSO purchase a VGA connector or cable - correct?

You're welcome. And always check my work.

All this looks to be the right parts but always ask around the stores.
