Connecting your TV to your PC is easy with this converter. In other words you can plug one end of this adapter into your computer and the other end into your television (works with your TV's composite port, yellow RCA, or S-Video port).
Available Ports and Buttons
(1) DC 5V power input
(2) Dip Switch (to adjust NTSC/PAL. NTSC is usually the default setting, but check that the switch setting reflects your correct format)
Note: NTSC and PAL are two of the three regional video formats (SECAM being the third). If you live in North America NTSC is the video format for you. Likewise, if you live in Western Europe, PAL is likely the format you need. If you have any questions about this, refer to our helpful article exploring the differences between these common formats.

How This Adapter Works
Setting up this adapter takes less than a minute with zero software or driver installations. Just connect your computer's VGA port to the adapter using the included VGA cable, and connect the yellow RCA composite port on the adapter to your TV with the included RCA cable (an S-Video cable is also included if you prefer that port). The converter sits near your PC and gets its power from your PC's USB port through an included USB-to-5V-power-tip cable. This saves you from having to take up a power outlet. You can use your PC speakers, or you can get a 3.5mm to RCA audio cable to run sound to your TV.
You might be wondering why you can't just use a simple passive VGA to composite cable. The answer is that VGA and composite video are two completely different formats requiring the use of an active conversion. This means that the picture that comes out of the converter is going to be slightly different than the picture that came in. See this detailed article that includes screenshots and comparisons for this converter.
