Depends on the MacBook Pro.
Do you want to use wired or wireless?
- If you have a newer (~2 years) MBP the AppleTV works well using Airplay
. Typical Apple, it "just works" provided both the AppleTV and the Mac have strong wifi connections.
- HDMI, DVI, and DisplayPort all use similar digital display signaling so a simple, and inexpensive, video cable is all that is required to directly connect the computer to a HDMI input of the HDTV.Hint
