PC/TV connect problem

  bastun 13:52 13 Nov 2006


I am trying to connect my PC to TV. I have an Averlite PC-TV converter (with Red/Green/Blue o/p to TV). Problem is TV does not have R/G/B input. It has Red/White/Yellow (to which I connected Green input to Yellow socket and get picture but very poor). The TV has S-Video socket and AV1 and AV2 scarts.
However, I have a DVD/Harddisk box connecting to the TV and this has the Red/Green/Blue sockets.

Can anyone advise the best method, given the above, of doing the PC/TV connect?

BTW: I am a complete muppet at this kind of thing.

If this is the Maplin PC-TV converter doesn't it have a S-VHS output you can use to connect to the TV? You will also need a separate cable for sound if you want this function as the converter only handles the graphics.

Yes (Maplin PC-TV) but with RGB output - (I inherited it). My DVD/Hdisk has the RGB input so I suppose I could use it if I figure out the correct output for that to the TV. Thanks anyway.
