    New guy questions

    I currently have a Dual single din DVD player, model # XDVD700

    I would have to convert the DVI from the mini mac into a rca connection in order to have the video display on the screen.

    Would this work with my DVD player that I have? I have read that there could be problems with the text etc. when converting to the DVD screen?

    Is this true?

    Thats not too bad, I can deal with that.

    So the DVI to RCA cable should work?

    I hope so, I will try and get the cables to see if it will work

    As long as the RCA output is a COMPOSITE output, not an RGB one, it will work.
