well, hdmi is largely just dvi with a different connection, though you do get sound through the connection as well. copy protection will possibly be an issue one day but at the moment there's little difference between the two.

There's no direct cable AFAIK. You'll need a Mini-DVI->DVI Cable then a DVI->HDMI convertor. Obviously you would just need a DVI cable and DVI->HDMI convertor if it's the Pro.

A lot of TVs report their resolutions wrongly when you hook them up to computers though so some messing around with DisplayConfigX (or equivilent) might be needed to get the right res and aspect ratio without losing a chunk of screen to overscan.

you can get a cable with dvi on one end and hdmi on the other which will work, obviously with a macbook you'll need an adaptor as well and as said, you may need to play with resolution..
