    I have a very nice vga-tv converter from AITech for $50. Its a cable only, so its nice and compact for the car. I have seen very very little loss of quality. I highly recommend it. It's part # Webcable 1108 (NTSC)and can be found here: http://store.yahoo.com/aitech/gifts.html
    Hope this helps

        thanx for the reply guys...

        ToxicPoison i will check it out. Its sounds like a good buy...
        Thats exatcly what im looking for.
        Aye couldnt really get a new video car as i dont have much space in my mp3 box, so the only solution i can think of is the converter.

            Pcman thanx mate...
            i been to that site b4 but couldnt find the converter from VGA to NTSC...
            And just now i found it... Man! i didnt know these things are so simple to construct...
            Only thing is to find a right driver for my video card which supports TV out... that might be bit of challange...

            Well thanx again...

              Have a look at analog devices website for AD724, this is a small ic that converts vga to PAL/NTSC using minimal external components. im going to build one hopefully next week. They also have free samples.

                  do a search on analog devices in altavista. found it in 2 minutes!! have ordered samples, but you got to fill out a questionaire first ;-( from the data sheet it looks like we still have to set the hsync and vsync to ntcs/pal standards , so it will depend on the video card/chipset you have .

                        Thanx Spud...

                        I got the address of the PCMan and already ordered 2 samples.
                        Soon i will have more time on holidays and will be able to do some prototyping.

                        I will let you know how it goes...

                          Sorry for not answering questions, ive been away.

                          The turnaround time for the chip is very slow. But there still free.

                          Ive done the schematic and will do the pcb soon. will post on website when done.

                            Hi Fosgate,

                            Did you get your VGA to TV converter? I got the same problem, I need to use a TV as the monitor for my PC. However my PC has no TV out and AGP slot. I found that the commercial VGA to TV converters are very expensive in Sydney. If I cannot find one, I will build my own converter using AD724/725. Do you know where to buy cheap electronic components such as resisters, capacitors, PCB, etc in Sydney? How about DxxkSmith, it is OK?

                            Thanks

                              please do not abuse free samples from manufacturers, they are there for engineers, not for some hobbyist trying to make something for cheap.

                              If you plan on making these and selling them, by all means go ahead.
