    What year is the Macbook? find out if you have a Mini-Display or Mini-DVI connection and depending on that you have to get that cable. For Example, if your MBP was manufactured between 2010 to now, it will have Mini-Display port and if your TV has HDMI connection then you will need a Mini-Display to HDMI cable.
