VGA to scart convertor?

I would like to be able to link my laptop to my computer. My DVD player used to play AVIs burnt to disc but that no longer works with my newer films - opinion seems to be that the codec has changed? Means nothing to me!

My laptop only has VGA output - no s-video or any other video connections.
My TV only has scart inputs.

I bought a convertor cable but it didn't work. Can anyone recommend one to buy or if they even actually work?

Thanks in advance for any help :)

yes, its 35 quid, but more likely to work, vga converters might not, as you have found out

A converter is a box with a processor inside that converts the signal, a sufficiently small one could potentially be built into a large scart connector but I guess what you actually bought was a dealextreme/ebay special consisting of a cable with two random connectors on and no processor at all.

A VGA to S-Video/Composite/Component converter box is what you need - although I don't have any experience of them myself so I don't know how much you need to spend to get acceptable quality. SCART is just a big connector that can carry S-video, Composite and Component so a simple cable adapter will work for that.

I might sell you my box if needed as I seem to have an issue with it on my tv, worked fine on one tv, on another was really bright and had a bit of a problem with lag/refresh rate i.e if you set it to 576(pal standard) it was fine for pal stuff but a pain for NTSC.

The scart c able it comes with has red and white phono inputs so you can just use a 3.5mm(headphone) to red and white phono/coaxial.

You could try updating your codecs, if you would still like to use that way. Look for klite codec pack.

Why was my other post deleted asking why the relevant info was deleted from this thread???

As was mine.


That's the info I was talking about. Can't understand why the wrong info has been left and the correct deleted, and then my post asking why deleted also???

I quite often search for threads like this if I've got a similar problem and I like to think if anything the best answer would be left, not the irrellevant one.

And why was there no suspension for someone telling me to **** myself up the **** or something similar?

I asked where itt went aswell and they deleted that post too.


oh well, if anyone finds this thread then good luck to them!

Thanks for posting though, it's given me an idea of how to fix a problem I have, I knew about the devices but hadn't thought about them as a solution until now!
