    Unfortunately the two DVI's are not compatible with eachother. I have heard that there is some sort of adapter or converter available, however.

    Why is that? I thought a DVI was a DVI?

    Read the manual from the Sony.......There are even different DVI plugs even when they are compatible. (i.e. Single vs Dual link, analog vs. Digital)

    Anyway, like faulkner says, the answer is nope.....

    The biggest problem with hooking the DVI from your Mac to the TV is the fact that the computer and the TV use completely different resolutions and refresh rates.
    ATI (who probably makes the video card in your Mac) sells an adapter to hook a PC to an HDTV.
    On the PC, there is an application called "Powerstrip" that allows you to change the frequency and resolution settings to match most/all HDTV settings. Just remember to hookup to a computer monitor to change the settings first, you do not want to have the wrong refresh rate when hooking up to your TV (VERY bad from what I've read).
    I have no idea what software you would need to use for a Mac, or if the ATI HTDV adapter will even work - but it can be done.
