    i went to the radioshack website to look for a pc to tv converter, and only found 1 converter. do you think this is too expensive for it? if there is another one cheaper out there, can anyone tell me where to find it? what i need this item for is i want to have dvd's that play in my dvd-rom drive play on my tv without the picture quality being cut. this product says that it converts the pc code to a tv code so the resolution is good for a tv.

    Well... my first thought is you should be able to find a video card with TV out cheaper then $100 (I haven't looked at video card prices lately so I dunno). Depends on what you want to do. Doesn't look like a bad price, but then I don't get out much...

    Yeah you should be able to find a video card with S-Video TV out built into the card for less than $100.
    Look for ATi 9200 chipsets or NVidia GeForce FX5200 chipsets. You could even look for older chipsets like ATi Radeon 7000-8500 or NVidia GeFroce 3 and 4 if you are not into playing recent 3D games.
