Have a laptop with no S-Video but it does have a 15 pin VGA. I want it to connect a LCD projector (Sharp XV-C1E, detail pls see below) which has 4pin s-video-in, and RCA.

Now i am looking for a connector or cable or adapter or whatever that could go from VGA to s-video if not that then to one RCA.

I am really a beginner in this part...
and i searched a little on google,seems there r something as i want exist. like this:

So I really wanne make sure about my case...
Is this kind of adapter suitable for the projector? or some other better choices??? THANKS soooooo much~

PS: about the projector:
Sharp XV-C1E LCD projector

Video Input:
Analogue Video Format -

Analogue video Signal - S-Video,

That video addaptor only works if your graphics card supports it.
The other way to do it is with a VGA-TV adaptor like this.
Be aware however that the quality of a downscaled vga signal is not the best.




Hmmmm

Sounds Like your in luck
AMD: Integrated AMD Xilleon™ HDTV encoder
  • Provides high quality analog TV output (component/S-video/composite)
Just remember the pinouts of that cable might be different to the ones your graphics card needs.
