OK I say we go VGA HDMI”
You cannot just connect a laptop VGA port to a HDMI port on a HD TV
VGA is Analogue and HDMI is Digital.
You have to use a VGA to HDMI Converter
“Or another method may be VGA to component as the TV has component in?”
Premium VGA to RCA Component Cable
One thing to note is that most TVs only accept HDTV resolutions in the HDMI port.
If you send a non standard resolution it will either not display it, or the screen will scale
the image to 1280x720 or 1920x1080.
