How do I connect my MacBook Pro to an LCD TV (with HDMI and S-Video ports)?  I assume I would need to use the DVI to Video adapter that came with my computer to connect to my LCD tv.  I'm just not sure which port I should use on the TV.  The HDMI port is being used for digital cable.

 

Also, does anyone know if this can be done wirelessly?

For a 2010+ MBP you can connect with a Displayport to HDMI, which will include Audio.

 

With older MBP you will need a displayport to HDMI, if you want audio to the actually TV, then you will need to get a cable with either digital out from MBP to the HDMI, or USB audio mixed into the HDMI

To add a bit to AussieDJ's info: If you have a 2010 or 2011-model MBP, be sure the mini-displayport-to-HDMI adapter you buy is explicitly advertised as supporting audio.  If it isn't so advertised, then it probably won't carry audio along with video.
