Just wondering. What exact cable is needed to connect Laptop HDMI to a TV with normal RCA inputs? There is also a s-video input
I see there are cables and also converter/adapter.
Under what circumstances is just the cable needed?
Thanks in advance.
Involuntary autocorrect in operation on mobile device. Apologies in advance.
Damager: I see the cable with no adapter. So if the laptop plays an avi via the adapter then it should be sweet right? But if I wanted to watch YouTube then I'd need the converter.
Am I reading this right?
New TV not an option at this time :D
stevenz: Image Quality: HDMI>Component>SCART>S-Video>Composite>CoaxialIf you only have composite (RCA, red yellow and white) inputs on the TV, the one from Jaycar will not work as stevenz has stated. You can also look at the following link, Darkstar have HDMI to RCA at a great price, just not back in the office until the 15th of Jan.....
The Jaycar unit linked above isn't badly priced at all given that the last time I looked it was more like $250 for a similar thing with a component output, the one on Trademe may work, but composite will look pretty rough if it does.
The options really aren't great, I'd say either the unit from Jaycar assuming the TV supports component (Red+Green+Blue) input, or save up for a cheap new LCD.
