hello everyone,

I'm fairly sure if you Google it you will find plenty of shops that sell HDMI to RC converters.

1. Radeon HD 7850 can output to HDMI.
2. HDMI to RCA/Component/Composite Converters exist
3. Should work.

I've seen such adapters, but I don't know how well they work (they shouldn't have any problem with any card so long as it has HDMI or even DVI-D with proper adapters, so the 7850 shouldn't have any issue). Just be aware that unless I'm remembering wrong, RCA maxes out at a very low resolution, so it probably wouldn't help to have a 7850 instead of say a much cheaper 7750 because the resolution would simply be too low for it to matter.

Of course, this isn't much of an option if you already have a 7850 or use it for other things where its power can be used and maybe I'm wrong about this, but its something to consider.

Composite video, the video cable in RCA, only supports very low resolutions. So, the 7750 or so would probably be able to perform with comparable real-world graphics quality no matter how high you pump them up on the 7850 because the cable simply can't run at a resolution that is high enough to make a difference.

hmm thanks so how much max resolution it can support?


Also would a cable be enough or i need some convertor for such connection as asked above?

Max resolution is 576i according to that link and links within it.

I think that that cable would be enough, but IDK. It would need an active adapter and IDK if it has one built-in. We could re-read that cable's link to see if it specifies if no one who has definitive knowledge of that clarifies.

Max resolution sent through composite/av video cable is 480i (720x480 interlaced)

Better off staying with your monitor for picture quality but if you want to try your tv, those converter boxes will set you back at least $100.

My advice, either buy a tv capable of 1080p using hdmi or stick with your monitor, truly wouldn’t want to waste your graphics card.

Thanks for all your replies, but i only need to know that would i be able to connect my pc directly via hdmi port in 7850 to my tv that accepts rc connection.

not worried about quality(wud be reasonable i guess)..just wud i ll be able to do so using just a cable from pc to tv??

thanks.

most likely.
as he said in his post.
theres RCA component to hdmi adapters
http://www.amazon.com/eForCity-3-RCA-Video-Component-Ca...
the 7850 has an hdmi.
the tv has rca female ports.

so there is no reason why it shouldn't work,but it will be horrible quality,low refresh rates,etc.

I mean buying a 7850,cheapest is $180,and then using it with a tv that can only display a lowly resolution of 720x480 at 59.94hz or 720x576 at 50hz is a huge waste.

thanks for the info.

but about the quality i think i might get reasonable, is that right?

cuz i had xbox360 that used to be connected to same tv via rc connections on television, so i didn't find visual experience with xbox360 that bad, on the other hand it was nice.

so similarly my intentions are that my pc with 7850 can put up with that equivalent video output my xbox360 used to give with same tv through rc connections.

assist me if i am heading wrong,thank you.
