Apple Video Adapter

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
This <a href=""; target="_blank">video adapter</a> is listed for the ibooks mini vga port. My question is will it work with a 17" imac? It has the same mini vga port...

    Part no. M8639G/A is compatible with both iBook and iMac G4.

    Sorry I forgot that apple store links die. The part I am refering to is the M8734G/A it connects to the mini vga port and supplies an s-video and an rca video plug for video out.

    No, part no. M8734G/A will only work with iBook (Dual-USB and later).

    The port on these iBooks is a combination VGA/S-Video/Composite port whereas the port on iMac G4 and eMac is VGA only.

    Well that just sucks <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

    Is there any other way to get video out on a 17" imac? what I am trying to do is hook up a small tv so I can see what stuff looks like on it before I burn a dvd.
