I've recently upgraded my GPU to palit 9400GT which has HDMI, VGA and DVI outputs. I want to be able to watch movie on CRT TV which has only composite inputs (White, Yellow, Red). So what are my options? is there any adaptors?

Also I use VGA port for my monitor, so only HDMI and DVI ports are available.

 

P.S. I'm not plannig to purchase HD LCD or Plasma...

 

Thanks.

Quite simply it can't be done with your card.

The only way is to downgrade your video card to something with TV out or buy a VGA -> composite adapter which will probably set you back around $100 or so.

Your tv doesn't have Red Green and Blue connectors does it?

sbiddle, there should be something...

 

Fossie, nope :(

 

Maybe DVI to VGA converter then VGA to S-Video converter... display in dual mode or something? would that work?
