Method 1. Determine your Mac's video output.

You most likely won't be able to find an RCA component cable adapter. Plug one end of your cable into your Mac. If you're not using a traditional HDMI cable, this will be either the Thunderbolt 3 end or the Thunderbolt 2 end of the cable. If you're using a non-HDMI adapter on the TV side of your Mac, you'll also need to plug the single end of the auxiliary cable into your Mac's headphone jack.

The cable only plugs in one way, so don't force it. If you're using a non-HDMI cable to connect to your TV, plug the end of the cable into your preferred input instead, then attach the audio cable's red and white inputs to the red and white ports on your TV, respectively. Turn on your TV. Press your TV's "Power". This step will vary depending on the appearance of your TV and its remote. Wait for your Mac's screen to appear on the TV.

As long as your Mac is on, you should see its screen appear on the TV within a few seconds of changing the input. If not, you may need to change your Mac's display and sound settings.
