Connecting Acer Aspire Revo 3610 to LCD tv ?

Thanks to Xmas purchases all my hdmi connections are used up on my tv.
I used to connect my Acer Revo 3610 via a HDMI connection.
My Sony KDL-40V4000 tv has a PC/VGA connection and I was wondering if I could connect it to that?.
If so I'm confused as to the best way to connect it.
Would I use a HDMI adapter or a cable or something else?
I think the Acer Revo only has very limited connection options so it's left me confused!
Any help appreciated x

Why can't you use HDMI still? You could probably use vga/d-sub, but you probably won't get full hd.

Borrow a hdmi cable from one of your other sources and try a HDMI cable?

An HDMI switch would allow you to plug multiple devices into the same hdmi port on your tv. You could use a vga to vga cable but hdmi would give you a better picture.

Not to mention vga would only send the video signal to your TV - you'd have to sort something else out for the audio.

You prob don't need it, but you won't get audio over VGA

Just get a HDMI switch ebay 120664336539 ?

Thanks all! I never thought of a HDMI switch.That looks the way to go.Cheers!

Or you could use the VGA cable and to get the soiund ujse the headphone out socket on the revo to the sound in socket on the TV.... but for futureproofing you're better off with the HDMI switcher.

Very unlikely to get full HD over vga.

dcx is correct, for my setup I have my monitor using DVI input, but did try VGA first... VGA handles full HD and beyond, but image quality isn't as good as digital is all... though I don't think it'd matter to everybody as picture is still good. Digital picture when viewed side by side does look better however. HDMI also has the advantage of transmitting the sound and video, where as VGA and DVI only carry the picture (some versions of DVI also carry the sound I should point out)

Im sure you can get a VGA to HDMI off ebay for like a quid. That should work.

I know VGA can handle it, but most tv's only allow hd ready on vga, not full hd.
