Question about Computers & Internet
I am trying to connect my laptop to the TV and would appreciated if someone could share information about connection details.
My Sony Vaio laptop (VGN-N160G) has only the VGA port. The lowest resolution that my Intel VGA card supports is 800 x 600.
My TV - Sony Trinitron (the old fat TV) has the S-Video input.
The connection is made using a VGA to S-Video cable (http://www.amazon.com/NEW-CONVERTER-S-VIDEO-CABLE-ADAPTER/dp/B000S675JU/ref=pd_bbs_3?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1217106435&sr=8-3) . Then, I redirected the VGA output to TV, but, I see some garbagge on TV & not the real picture.
Could someone share his/her thoughts?
Most tv's are not compatible in this matter. They were made to be a tv, and not a computer monitor. Some of the newer tv's are compatible. If they have a vga port then they are compatible, but may not support or have the resolution expected. The vga to s-video cables were designed mainly for the use of the newer computers with vga ports to older flat panel monitors with s-video ports, at the time that vga was first coming out. This cable is on the verge of obsolete. So, I don't believe that you're going to be able to hook the two together, and get the outcome you want.
