Connecting Laptop VGA to TV Scart

  Mi Casa 11:19 21 May 2009

Could someone comment on the success [or failure] of connecting an LCD TV Scart to a laptop VGA using an adaptor cable?

The options available on the TV are HDMi and Scart.

The laptop has only VGA.

The site has it listed as out of stock, but gives an idea. Can't find anywhere that it's in stock at the moment....

Note: i don't think that you can get a convertor to take from VGA to a true digital signal since VGA is analogue

I've been using CPC in Preston (part of the Farnell Group) for around 35-40 years.

It is one of the largest outlets for leads and many other types of products in the UK and prices are remarkably keen.

You can ring up and get expert help if you can't find exactly what you are looking for due to the sheer number listed on the website:

As laptops are often used for presentations, check if it has a yellow video socket plus left and right audio sockets - you could then use a lead such as:

which includes a Scart plug at a cost of £2.47 in the clearance/bargain corner.

I use S-Video and audio leads terminated with a Scart plug for my DVD player.
