Hello there.

I have a VGA to Composite cable going from my computer and into my TV. (It also has an S-Video side to it so if that would work, Please tell me so i can buy an s-video extender :D ). OK so when i connect them up i get a horrible black and white, Static layering type picture. My simple question is, Is there a way to get a clear, perfect picture??

Thanks In Advance

Composite is the HD cable (3 plugs for up to 1080i), and component is the old 3 plug RCA variety (480i). Which are you referring too?

Wrong. Other way around. Composite is the single yellow SD cable, Component is the 3 plug (Red, Blue, Green) that operated at 1080i.

S-Video is the same as the Yellow composite, just a different plug. Both are the same type of video, resolution, etc.

As for VGA to Composite:
Quote:
CAUTION: Only works with VGA cards that have TV-Out functionality through the VGA connector. Check your Video Card manual to make sure that your VGA card has TV-Out capability.


Does your Card have that capability?

VGA to Composite/ S-Video: http://www.optimization-world.com/details/prodid/170.ht... Use an RCA or S-Video Coupler to make both ends male like they should be.

P.S., all 3 formats are analog and fundamentally interchangeable.

THe product that was in the link is the one i have. Now i tried the composite end and like i said i got a horrible black and white static image (you can see the screen but it is constantly moving in a static-type motion and divided into 8 pieces). I have ordered an S-Video Male To Male connecter so i can try s-video

Heres hope it works

Thanks In Advance
