Apple's iMac is one of the more well-regarded computers in the industry in terms of performance and user-friendliness. Among the many features offered with the iMac, as with many computers, is the ability to connect to an external monitor. With the right cables and adaptors and a simple connection, that external monitor can even be a Panasonic plasma TV.

    Connecting to the TV

  1. 1

    Check to see which inputs your Panasonic plasma TV offers. If your model has a PC/DVI input, a simple DVI cable will be sufficient to make the connection. If it does not, a DVI-to-HDMI cable will be required.

  2. 2

    Turn on the TV and connect the necessary cable (DVI or HDMI) to that input on the unit.

  3. 3

    Connect the other end of the cable to the mini-DVI port on the back of the iMac.

  4. 4

    Set the TV to the PC or HDMI input that corresponds to the cable you connected. The iMac is designed to be "plug and play," meaning that if connected in that order, the video should transfer to the TV.

  5. 5

    Adjust any video settings necessary on the TV to adapt the picture to fit the screen to your liking.
