Question about Apple iMac 24" Desktop
I have a 24" Mac with Bose Companion 5 speaker system. Recently I added a Philips 32' Flat TV 32PFL5403 with a DVD Video Player, giving me the pleasure of having two displays.Companion 5 dishes out only the source of my MAC. How do I integrate the DVD TV & DVD Player to my MAC and to the Bose 5 system?
The best option here is to use your TV as a secondary monitor for your iMac. Doing so would require the correct type of connector in your case a mini-DVI to HDMI connector.
Once it is connected, you have three options - you can have it mirror what's going on on your iMac's display, have it act as extra monitor 'real estate' - that is to say extra space that you can drag windows onto and so on - or you can have the TV act as your primary monitor.
All of these options can be changed when your TV is connected through Apple menu > System Preferences > Display > Arrangement.
You don't really need to worry about the DVD player on the TV as the Mac OS has a DVD player application built into it. You can use it or the TV's DVD player, it's really up to you.
As for connecting both of them to the same speaker system, you should be able to purchase a connector that will go from the audio out port of your TV to the audio in on the back of your iMac. You would then be able to select the TV's output in Apple menu > system preferences > sound > input.

Tips for a great answer:
If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker
system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite
box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
