Overview

Want a higher quality picture? If you need an HD picture please see our Hammerhead VGA to HDMI converter 1080p our, VGA to HDMI converter 720p or our, VGA to Component (RGB) 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.

PC to TV Converter Diagram
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.

Past Models

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:

Question:

Please forgive me if my question sounds dumb but I an new to this! My computer only has one VGA port which is currently connected to the pc monitor. When I unplug it & connect it to the tv, will I see the mouse cursor on the tv and be able to use it in the same way as when the pc monitor was hooked up?


Answer:

Yeah, the idea behind the PC to TV Converter is that everything you're doing on your computer, whether it's watching movies, doing power point presentations or just playing solitaire, will be projected onto your TV screen.

Question:

My TV has both S-video and Component Video inputs. I understand that Component Video is the better of the two. Does this adapter (SW-23000) convert from VGA to Component Video, or would I need a different adapter?


Answer:

The SW-23000 does not support component video. You would need something like our SW-5693 to do so, we have a few options though besides that one only.
