Hi, wondering if anyone can help me with this.
I have an Acer Aspire 5738Z laptop that has a VGA and an HDMI connector and obviously a headphone jack. I would like to connect this to my Sony CRT TV. My TV doesn't have an HDMI connector or VGA, but has S-video, a few SCART sockets and composite sockets. I stupidly bought a S-vid to S-vid cable thinking my laptop would have this connection but it doesn't, and also a headphone to composite cable which does work fine. Is there any way I can cheaply convert the S-video to VGA or HDMI at one end so I've not wasted money on the cable.

definitely no on the svideo to hdmi (one's analog and one's digital, they'll never talk) and almost probably no on svideo to VGA, you might be able to find a pinout diagram online that you MIGHT be able to work into a custom cable, but i'm going to doubt it.

something like this might work http://www.ramelectr...rodGPV2000.html but i've got no proof that it would
