Yes VGA carries RGBHV--RGB and Horizontal and Vertical Sync information along with DDC info where available.

Now is that port on your TV a d-sub 15 pin standard VGA connector?

If it is, then yeah you should be able to output VGA from a PC to the TV with a proper cable.

However if the TV has DVI or HDMI connections on it, it's better for you to connect it that way. DVI/HDMI is a digital signal and if it's a digital-based display tech TV, then you're better off using that. Also if the TV does resolution above 1360x768 (i.e. if it does 1080p) you can get higher resolution by going via DVI/HDMI...

Make sure all connections Power ,HDMI and any other connecting leads have secure dust free connections also check each lead for any kinks / bends .
Connecting a Toshiba Satellite Laptop to a TV is an ideal way to enjoy videos, photos and other media on the laptop on a much larger screen.
Satellite Laptops can be connected to TVs using VGA, S-Video and even HDMI, though the TV has to have compatible inputs as well.

Connect the RGB cable or S-video cable to an open input on the TV.
Depending on the type of TV, it may or may not have a RGB input.
S-video may have to be used instead.
Connect the 1/4 inch to RCA Y-cable into the TV using the same input as the VGA or S-video cable.
Connect the other end of the VGA or S-video cable and the audio cable into the laptop.
The video ports are on the sides of the laptop.
The audio cable should go into the headphone jack of the laptop.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655-S5096 and am trying to use the RGB port to connect the laptop to a relevision. I'm attempting to use an adapter to convert to an RCA style plug as the tv doesn't...

I have tried this on several occasions with different models of VGA to RCA converter boxes and the resulting screen images have always been extremely POOR.

If I were you, I would not bother spending any money on one of those converters. Just save the money and put it towards a decent computer monitor or a good flatscreen TV with a VGA input connection.

You can pick up a good old CRT computer monitor for next to nothing these days since everyone is just throwing them out and changing over to the flatscreen monitors. And if you want, you can even pick up a small brand new flatscreen monitor for about $100, so there's not much reason really to mess around with those questionable converter devices.

Good luck anyway.

You'll need to go to a store and find a converter cable. Honestly, most stores won't carry something like this, but it's possible that you'll find one. I found a bunch on eBay. Here's an example of what you're looking for. They come in a wide range of quality and prices, but this is basically what you're looking for. If you wanted a really high quality one, you should go for an actual converter device, and not just a cable where "magic" happens inside. Here's one I found:

How to convert my my toshiba laptop w/ a usb port or a rgb port, to my jvc lcd 46' hdtv 1080p. is there any downloads that can help. I would like to have a nice media center.

I am unsure that yours is the same as mine (mine is a equium p200d-139)
It has a svhs socket onthe side and on the F5 key is the pc/tv switch ( by pressing the fn key and f5 you go from screen to svhs and screen then just svhs then back to screen)
If you have such a socket just connect a svhs cable to the tv and power the tv up, select the svhs (mine is shared with av2 on my tv (sony))
you may have to go into display options in the control panel also.
I hope this helps
