Laptop video displayed on CRT style tv?
Hey gang. Not even sure if this is possible.
A buddy of mine has a newer laptop with Win 7, but has the old box style tv.
He wants to get rid of cable and use the computer to push the video to the tv.
The computer has an HDMI port on it, and also has the usual VGA thing.
The tv had RCA, S Video and Component.
My first instinct is to assume that if there is some sort of HDMI or VGA to Svideo/component type a cable, some type of convertor box may be needed ?
I assume once I have everything hooked up it would merely be a matter of extending the display like i do now with dual monitors.
However, I am clueless as to the hardware needed to make the connection.
Can someone advise pieces needed ?
Thanks in advance
Tv is Samsung TXP2734
