Hi guys,
I was wondering if anyone would be able to tell me what would be the easiest way for me to watch my computer on my Tv. I dont have a tv tuner for my computer, but from what I've been told I can get an adapter that will convert my VGA to S-video, but if i do this then i'd have to disconnect my monitor. Does anyone know of a VGA to S-video that would allow me to keep my monitor plugged in??? I would much rather buy the adapter because i can get it for about 5$ on ebay, rather than spending more on a tv tuner. But I dont like the idea of having to disconnect my monitor cuz i would still need to use it. Any suggestions, Thanks

I would really be careful buying that thing off of ebay. Looks like a fake to me. The only real solutions are whole USB external adapters that will convert it. They are both analog outputs, but it looks to me like a couple of wires soldered to an old adapter. Even if it works its probably not gonna look too awesome

Your video adapter would also need to support dual monitors or anytime you needed to use the pc monitor you would have to manually change it over.
