Hi there

I have this TV, which has got a RCA connector. I would like to connect it to my TV so that I can show films on my TV, instead of the computer screen. I have read that a cable with a VGA jack at one end and a RCA jack (which actually is three jacks) will do the trick is that so?

Hi lo2,
You need to provide information about your computer, this includes is it
a laptop or desktop, is it a custom build or brand name such as Dell or HP
and if it is provide the model name or series number.

Not sure what you mean here can you give a little more detail please.

I both have a custom build desktop computer with a VGA socket, running Windows 7 64 bit. And I have got a Dell laptop also with a VGA socket, running Windows XP.

I have attached a picture of the socket on the TV.:

By the way I have discovered that I have a 7 pin S-video cable, on my Dell laptop. Will this help?

7 pin S-video cable

Not sure what one is but it most likely is not capable of supplying audio like the ones suggested http://www.google.co...CIQBEPMCMAE4Cg#

Yeah well does not sound as though there is an easy solution :/

So I guess I would have to have a more modern TV to be able to do this.

Looking at your TV connections this one http://www.google.co...d=0CJsBEPMCMAc# has video in and left and right audio connections which is all that you require, the other 2 leads are for different devices and so would not be used.
