Hi, I'm new here and I really need someone's expert advice!! What is the best and most cost efficient way to hook up my laptop to my lcd projection TV?? My laptop has a standard 15pin Vga input, my TV does not. My options on my TV are:
-HDMI
-Component
-s-video

I bought a vga to s-video cable but it didn't work. I'm a little out of my element here, but I've heard you can buy converters that look like a box (not a cable) for vga to hdmi. Will this work?? Someone at futurehop also told me I can buy several adapters and run vga to dvi, dvi-hdmi. Will this work?? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks!!

hi

cheap option here , undoubtedly get the same in USA if your located there.

if your using s-video watch out on the quality of cable, poor quality & the longer they are the video can go into grey scale.

i have several 15 m examples in my parts box.
had an interesting time matching up a infocus projector with a tv, now i know why they sold highly priced s-vid cables as separates.

thanks for your reply. Oddly enough, this is the ezact cable that I bought. Maybe I'm just not doing something right. My old laptop had s-video only, so when I hooked it up to the tv, I immediately got a picture on my tv when I extended my desktop. This cable however, did not do anything. Do I need to enable something in my graphics card's software?? If someone could give me a step-by-step how to, I would be forever in debt. thanks so much!
