|I just bought a Dell Inspiron 15R N5010, thinking it was going to have an S-Video out port. It didn't. So the S-Video to RCA adapter I ordered with it is useless. But the computer does have a VGA port. My video card is an ATI Mobility Radeon HD550v. I've already found on my computer where I can tell it to "Connect to a projector" by selecting "Duplicate." What I'm hoping someone will know the answer to is . . . will a "VGA to S-Video or RCA Adapter" made by "Cables Unlimited" be enough to connect my computer to my standard resolution tv? |
The adapter in question costs around $10. It does no processing. It has recieved many bad reviews claiming it does not work, and the reason put forth for why it does not work is because a VGA signal has to be converted to an S-Video or RCA signal - this requires processing. Yet there is one review claiming it does work as long as the video card has tv-out capability.
