Just realised my new laptop has no s-video socket (only VGA), so I'm not able to hook it up to the TV at the hotel I'm staying at tomorrow.

What alternatives do I have? I assume there's some VGA to RCA converter box somewhere.

Was quite handy having s-video on my old laptop, especially for watching movies on a hotel tv.  I didn't realise my current laptop didn't have it until today :/
