Is there a way anyone could recommend to connect a VGA port on a computer to RGB RCA ports on a TV?

 

I was trying to think of a way to hook up an old computer to and old TV as a spare media tv.

 

Thanks!

The cable recommended by pcdoc says it is not for connecting a pc to a tv.

 

You need a device that will convert the signal. Usually picture quality on a standard tv is really poor for use as a pc display.

Thanks CSKenny! I didn't catch that first part. This link is looking pretty good and the customer reviews talk about what I'm trying to do -- hook up a relatives PC to a TV so they can play Hulu or other internet content thru their TV -- not on intending it for a monitor for the PC -- looking at 480i on a old tube TV.

PCDocs suggestion should work fine for video up to 720p, but would be horrible for viewing documents.

As Joe is looking for media outcomes, I thing the cable adapter should work fine.

 

WOW, I am a Star now :-)
