    Question VGA to COMPOSITE

    I remember seeing a site on which there was a circuit for converting VGA to Composite. I cant remember the URL, or what the site was called so can anyone help me out?

    don't bother, get either a VGA monitor or if you really must have pal, get a card with TV out.

    Go to the search page. Enter the following into the search panel:

    psone AND lcd

    Hit the "Search Now" button. A lot of hits will come up showing you how to connect a VGA port to a psone lcd.

    It doesn't matter that you don't have an AGP port on your board if you're trying to plug in a PCI tv out card - they need a PCI slot...!

    Those things a great, and would probably be an ideal solution, but i reckon the price is too steep. If i was going to buy anything that gets me an actual TV-Out port, i would buy an PCI Video Card with TV-Out. That way, i score a half decent video card that would greatly increase the systems current score of 1.5 in 3DMark 2000 . Such an example of this would be a PCI model of the GeForce 4 MX440 . Also, the low profile of that particular card would help me make the case smaller.

    Or i could just Wire my PS screen straight to VGA, but i cant be bothered scewing around with smal wires and compact soldering.

    IT isnt of anysort of referance but my mobo is the Jetway 920BF

    I have been using one of those adapter type things for about 1 1/2 years now. and it does the job quite nicely.

    HOWever, if you are using a tft (NON VGA) screen then you dont really notice much degredation on the small text, because it looks terrible anyway.... livable but nothing like a vga screen. the only *** ache with the one I had was that it just looked messy with extra wires hanging around.

    Its a cheap alternative to a VGA screen >>>> but not as cheap as just getting yourself a 32mb Pci Graphics card off Ebay for 20 (but then you have to get a dummy VGA adapter for it to work independantly)

    IMHO by the time you have fannied around bought an adapter, sorted it out etc you will have wished you had Bought a mini ITX with built in phono out, and a quick 800mhz C3 cpu...... wish i had just done that... is a lot simpler! and cheaper... and smaller! in the long run!
