I decided to try this, you need to check your m/board manual and see if you can fit another graphics card with TV out, then maplin sell a kit which connects to your TV out port and sound card outputs to a box then to a scart socket. I coudnt find a scart lead long enough and did not want a PC next to the telly. Dont know if there is a way of connecting a VGA port to a TV with a converter.

click here and click here you have a columbia gx mobo (gigabyte GA-8siml) with onboard sis graphics.

you will need to purchase a graphics card with a svideo out connector.
