The most complicated connection is VGA. This is an analogue signal but it isn't compatible with most TVs. To make this work, your best bet would be to get a VGA to TV converter, such as the PC to TV Box, available from Maplins. click here

You'll still have to buy a SCART adapter to convert the video to SCART if you don't have composite/S-Video ports on your TV. Take note that SCART has two different types - in and out. You'll need SCART in.

A SCART to VGA cable is for displaying devices with SCART out (such as a DVD player or video recorder) on a device with VGA in (like a PC monitor or projector). These will not work the other way around.
