PC to HDTV Cable help?

I'm looking at getting a PC VGA to TV RCA Component cable, so I can use my computer on the bigger screen. This isn't all for jollies though, now I'll be able to watch things online on the bigger screen in the living room instead of in the basement with the laptop speakers and picture.

So I was considering getting this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/For-Computer-PC-...713.m153.l1262

But me not being the computer wiz I wish I was am not so sure this will do the trick. I think it will, but I need to hear a 'yes' from you guys before I buy it, figure out it won't work, buy another one, figure out that one won't work, etc.
Right now I'm trying to figure out if my video card supports tv output, and can't seem to find it under my control panal (vista os).
I do have a VGA to VGA cable, but it won't transfer the audio, and I don't have a S-Video cable for it, which would cost almost as much as the one listed.

And as long as I'm on the topic, I don't think this is compatible with the ps3
http://cgi.ebay.com/Mini-USB-Keyboar...3.m 153.l1262
but it uses a USB connector, and I hope it is before I buy, I also sent the seller an email asking the same.

Yes that keyboard should probably work with your ps3. I'd suggest getting a solid one though, since if you ever want to sit with it on your lap on a chair...



If you want to find out about whether your laptop supports tv-out via VGA, then there are a couple of ways to do this. Look in the advanced properties of your display settings...

control panel > personalisation > display settings > advanced settings

Just have a look in there, or look for another tab with a manufacturer's settings. It might have an option to set it.

If not, use that section to find out your graphic card manufacturer and model, go on their website or search the internet to find out the information. You also might have to upgrade your display drivers and use the display settings to change the output modes and settings.

If you have a S-Video port and audio cable, use that. But make sure it's s-video, it might also be a HD DIN port whereby you need to use an adapter to change it to component.

With the cable you were looking at, I assume you have a HD-TV otherwise it won't work at all.

I think I'll just shoot you an email from now on, as you appear to be the only one who helps out anymore.

I actually thought the cable could be used on a regular tv, since they also sport the AVG wiring. Guess not.
Thanks for the information tozzy!

I'm turning over a new leaf. I want a gun-toting, Republican from Texas to park his beef bus in my lot.
