    first off,sorry if this is posted in the wrong spot,i wasnt sure if it would fall under computers/programming or home/car audio

    my dad wants to hook up his computer to his tv

    i used this video as a bit of a guideline [y]eWRzYMsNEZM[/y]

    when i checked out my dads tv,he has a S video input but he doesnt have a tv output on his computer

    if i paid attention to the video correctly,i need a VGA to Tv converter...correct?

    could anyone suggest a decent vga to tv converter?

    thanks in advance

    It's probably cheaper to buy a new video card than to deal with an external converter box. What are the specs on the computer?

    get a dvi to hdmi cable for video and a 3.5mm to rca cable for audio. you can buy them from monoprice.com
