  • anybody know a cheap solution to get TV out from VGA?

    Im looking to use a TV sourse for my media computer (i'm planning on using a front-end, so i dont need the resolution, and i want my movies to be on a bigger screen than my CRT.)

    Short of buying a new video card that supports TV-out, is there a cheap adapter that can convert VGA to s-video or composite?!?!

    Thanks!

    Search for a scan converter I think it is but don't expect brilliant results.

      I actually have two of these scan converters, and both work very well. One is an AverMedia QuickPlay, which offers VGA -> Component and S-Video and is USB powered. The other is the most popular Audio Authority 9A60 converter which was used for a VGA -> HDTV (via component) connection.

      I was going to post both to eBay since I no longer need them (bought a plasma that has VGA input) but if you're interested in either I can put them in the FS forum.

        You can make that second one for $15 with parts from RadioShack.

            u can go that route, or even cheaper is to go with a card with video out (i know u said u didnt want to)...but these are dirt cheap. I got a Geforce 4 / 64mb of memory for $19.99.....thats like 4 times less than the VGA>RCA adapters.
