Hello. Can anyone give me some links to a VGA to S-video cable? I know it exists because I've seen it before somewhere but I can't seem to find it anymore.

|# It will work with laptops and desktops with VGA cards that has TV-Out function capability through the VGA connector
# Please check your PC & Video Card manual or manufacturer to make sure that your VGA card has TV-Out
function capability through the VGA connector to ensure this cable will work for you!
|Natually the computer graphics (VGA) and normal broadcast television (NTSC,PAL or SECAM standard) are very incompatible with each other. With suitable conversion it is possible to show VGA picture on TV screen with somewhat degraded quality. This conversion can be done with some external hardware or the conversion hardware can be built into the graphics cards (PC graphics cards with TV output option).|
|VGA to TV converters have to do quite a lot of thing to be able to show VGA monitor picture on TV screen:
* Match VGA horizonal sync frequency to TV sync frequency
* Match the VGA display frame rate (60 or 70 Hz) to TV frame rate (50 or 60 Hz)
* Convert non-interlaced VGA picture to interlace format for TV
* Convert VGA picture signals to RGB+Sync, PAL/NTSC composite video or S-video formats
