Hi,

Apple has never been very friendly with display ports, changing them nearly each generation. The iMac G5's had the MiniVGA port.

Assuming your HD TV has a VGA port (many do) you just need to pick up a MiniVGA to VGA adaptor. Something like this:

You'll need to connect separate audio cables if required too.

The iMac G5 only officially supported Video Mirroring meaning you'll only get what you can see on the Mac - rather than a second display but there is a fix called Screen Spanning Doctor that you might like to try at your own risk: http://www.rutemoeller.com/mp/ibook/supportlist_e.html
