    Default VGA to CRT TV (s-video or scart)

    Does anyone have any experience (or knowledge) of converting a VGA output to a CRT TV via either scart or s-video?

    I have an old PC that I want to hook up to an old CRT style TV for the purposes of watching iPlayer, playing old games etc.

    I've seen converter boxes that seem to be about 50-70 but also simple cables that appear to do the same or similar for around 10-20.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    you can built them niall but you tend to get all matter of sync issues
    many of the early VGA cards has a com video output via a RCA connector
    thats works ok to a TV with Comp video I/P

    The card I have has an HDMI output and 2 VGA. Its a ATI something (HD4xxx I think) that I bought for an emergency repair and then replaced with a decent card when I had more cash.

    So I reckon its good enough to watch streaming media and check a few auctions in WoW.

    I'll give a conversion lead a try on pay day and report back, nice cheap way of getting a basic media centre PC if it works.
