PC to TV Converter

|We also recommend the new Sewell PC to TV Converter (SW-23000). It features a similar chipset, but all of the cables you need to handle audio as well.|
Note: We strongly recommend you consider the SW-22050 (without audio) or SW-23000 (includes audio) - they have more advanced chipsets (resulting in higher-quality video) and are both offered at a lower price point.
Easily connect the VGA port on your desktop, laptop, gaming console, etc., to your TV with this one-piece PC to TV converter.
The PC to TV converter does not require software. Simply connect your VGA source to the converter using the included VGA cable. The computer to TV converter translates the VGA signal to be able to play on your television. You can connect it to your TV via S-video or composite video (with the RCA connector). The converter is powered via USB, so there is no external power adapter to carry around making this converter very portable for use with a laptop.
You also get an additional VGA-out port so you can still use your existing monitor in addition to your secondary video source. The PC to TV converter simply mirrors your computer's current video signal for output on an additional display, such as a TV, VCR (to record a new high score perhaps?), or any other video display with an S-Video or RCA input.
This computer to TV converter does not include audio. If you need to go to the 1/8-inch sound connector on your sound card to Audio RCA, check out the handy 1/8 inch to RCA Audio cable.
For longer distance conversion, try the Wireless VGA to TV converter. Do you have a High Definition TV (HDTV)? Then you'll want to use a High Definition signal with it. For a great solution, check out the PC to HDTV Converter. If your TV has an HDMI port try our popular VGA to HDMI adapter.

Pros: Very easy to use; does a good job; inexpensive
Cons: None so far
Other: I bought this to convert the flv,avi, and mpg files on my computer to a VHS cassette. This may be an unusual practice, but it saves me from having to do a lot of tricks with the computer. I can then use my DVD recorder to create DVD discs from the VHS tapes. A round-about process, but I like it. You can also use the EZ Converter to copy difficult sites live from the Internet. I have used the VGA/USB connection on both an XP and a Vista computer. For the XP I boot the computer first then attach the cables. For the Vista I attach the cables first. This is a very nice product.

Pros: Must have for anyone who enjoys watching movies on their computer, or making presentations for work, school or family. Easy to connect, and small for great storage. Comes with everything you need to get started.
Cons: Although the video is great, there are small bars running through it, so it's not a perfect picture. Also the text is unreadable for medium to small text. For instance this review would be but a blur on your tv.
Other: This product was a great buy for what i wanted out of it. Most similar products are usually about 70 to 80 dollars more for something that doesn't work as well. I highly recommend this product to anyone who wishes to view movies from their computer on their tv.

Pros: This converter works very well for my needs. Now I'm able to use my computer and my Xbox 360 on the same t.v. just by changing the channel. Considering radio shack tried to charge me $101.99 for the same component, i'm very glad i found it here. I use my computer to play movies and the picture is fantastic.
Cons: As other people have already said, small text is rather hard to read. Thats my only complaint and it isn't a big one.

the converter works excellent: rating 5
Hi, what kind of protocol is it working on? I'm using a Linux PDA (Nokia N800) and want to output the video.
This device simply takes a VGA input and gives you a composite video for your TV. The N800 appears to not have any video out options. Without a VGA out port, you would not be able to use this to connect your PDA to your TV.

Will it work to convert a standard RCA video output to play on a computer LCD screen with only a VGA input?
The PC to TV converter goes the opposite direction from what you are describing. It will go from a computer and output to an RCA connection on the TV. If you want to display an RCA source onto a VGA monitor you would need to use a standalone TV Tuner. Something like our Standalone Computer Monitor TV Tuner, part SW-4677 would work just fine. That part will take your RCA source and convert it to VGA to be displayed on your computer monitor.

I was in Radio Shack last week and they said that USB is not a reliable way to do my power point from laptop to TV. Was this just a pitch to get me to spend $100 on a non USB solution?
There are several solutions to display your computer's contents on a TV. Many of them have different advantages and drawbacks. This adapter admittedly will not give you a picture as sharp as your computer monitor, but it has the advantages of being simple, portable and inexpensive. With applications like PowerPoint, the images and text is usually large enough that you can sacrifice some of the clarity for the other advantages.
