Want a higher quality picture?
If you need an HD picture please see our VGA to Component (RGB) converter
or our VGA to HDMI converter
. As another option, you can get an HD signal through any computer's USB port using the Sewell HDdeck USB to HDMI solution
Sewell's PC to TV converter allows you to view content from your computer on your television..
How This Works
Using the Sewell PC to TV converter is easy and simple with zero software to install. The converter features an all-in-one cable that breaks out into the three cables you'll need to connect to your computer: a VGA
cable, a 3.5mm stereo audio cable (aka 1/8" stereo audio or mini stereo jack), and a USB
cable (just to power the converter). The all-in-one PC-side cable reduces cable clutter immensely.
Once the VGA, 3.5mm audio, and USB is connected, you'll just need to connect the red, white, and yellow (right/left audio and composite
video respectively) ports to your TV with the provided cables. This unit also supports S-Video
output to the TV (optional).
The PC to TV has built-in button controls to adjust the video and also to zoom in if desired.
Quality of Conversion
As with all PC to TV conversions, the image quality is not quite that of straight VGA pass-through. We have a very comprehensive article with screenshots
where we compare the PC to TV conversion with straight VGA. The PC to TV converter works well for picures and videos, for small text and fine detail we recommend the VGA to HDMI
converter which is optimized to work with HDTVs.
Being the world leading distributor of PC to TV products, Sewell Direct knows the concerns users have had with past units; mainly the issue with cable clutter. Not only have we improved the PC to TV by including audio (so you don't have to route a seperate cable from your PC to the TV to handle audio), but we've combined all cables that go to the PC in one single break-out cable. The difference is quite significant:
