How can I watch PC on TV?
I have searched older answers and I couldn’t find any help. I can’t afford cable so I want to watch shows using my computer on my tv. Currently, I have maybe a 3 month old computer. I’ve read that you can run a cable from the video card to the tv but I have a really old tv so I may not be able to connect it.
-ATI Radeon 4850 graphics card.
-Vista home premium
-Tivo with dual turner on tv no connected
-dsl internet via router through phone jack(low speed 1.5mb/s DL/averaging 150 kb/s)
-tv only has the red, white, yellow inputs and a deal in the back for cable only.
I’m hoping that I don’t have to buy an Xbox or anything else to expensive. What is the cheapest way for me to go? Thanks in advance for ansering my question.
I just ordered a S-Video to 3 RCA cable on ebay. My video card has an s-video output. I’m hoping this will solve my problem. Thanks for all the help guys/girls.
I have VGA, DVI, and HDMI outs on my video card but only the composit outs on my tv so this is my only option. When I decide to upgrade my tv, I will have better quality. I don’t see that happening in the near future though…..
The cable you bought should work, however the quality might not be the greatest. Do you have any other outputs like the first few on this list? http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/mediacenter/getstarted/wmc-on-tv.mspx
