Im thinking of connecting my laptop upto the TV downstairs which is TBH, a bit out of fashion.

Is there a way of connecting it up without a VGA connection being on the TV.

something like 130341332416 VGA to triple RCA

Then something like 250507177455 3M Triple Phono 3 RCA AV Audio Video Cable Lead Gold UK

would this also transfer the sound to come out the tv speakers rather than the laptop?

Nope you would need one of these to the sound input part.

180442721471

And only plug the yellow one in you can find them seperate which might be easier.

So i would connect the VGA to RCA cable. Then connect the triple RCA cable to both ends - but only the yellow to the tv? then the 180442721471 into laptop headphone and into the red/white RCA on the TV?

basically yes.

Will that work? The Yellow RCA connector is for a composite signal which is different from the RGB VGA signal.

No, I don't think it will work - I think there were some graphics cards that encoded a composite signal within the VGA port through slightly different wiring, that's what the cable is for. It's a while since I looked into it but it can't do a straight through connect from VGA to RCA.

To connect to a TV over s-video/composite (black circular video port/yellow phono port) the laptop will need a corresponding port on it.

I've had a look at pictures of the laptop but I can't see any sign of the s-video/composite port you'd need for outputting to a TV over an SD connection. There may be ways to do it with USB/Express card adapters but I haven't tried a method like this for a while and have no specific recommendations.

That doesn't make a difference anyway. But OP most full size laptops have a S Video output hidden away somewhere on them.


It does make a difference as the OP can't find the S-Video port which means it may not have one. By confirming which laptop the OP has somebody can and has looked online to see what ports the laptop has.

A full converter would do it, something like this for £50. Apart from that you might have luck with a VGA to RGB SCART cable if you don't mind fiddling around with the settings but a quick search shows your laptop may have intel integrated graphics and if that's the case I wouldn't even consider trying.

Bear in mind that if your TV is not an HD model it has very limited resolution and will be unsuitable for a lot of things these days. Videos are about the only thing that will work well.
