looks like your pc has a dvi output and your tv mentions hdmi inputs, even tho i can't see them in the picture and have no idea why they seem to mention separate audio inputs for the hdmi connections,ie. hdmi 1 audio in.

 

hdmi has both video and audio through the same cable and always has as far as i'm aware,(a link to your actual tv would help me check it's connections) 

 

i'd use a cable like this if your tv does have hdmi ports. :- http://www.amazon.co...00IMOFDV2?psc=1

 

i don't think you can just use a vga to component cable unless the video card supports tv ouput (which i very much doubt) so would think you'd need a dvi/vga to component converter to use the component inputs on your tv.

 

:popcorn:

 

see if this topic gives you more info on using the component inputs on your tv :- http://forum.videohe...-TV-s-Component

 

personally tho i'd use hdmi input on your tv if it does have them like i think.

The tv doesn't have hdmi, I've looked all over it.

 

Is it possible to get a program that replaces the converter?

I can't find anything like hdmi, plus I'd need a new cable anyway. Though if an hdmi did exist I'd still like to know where they hid it. Is there anything else I can try with what I have? I heard that plugging the red green blue into the yellow red white might work, but I don't know about where to put each color. This is the back of the TV http://mikaristar.de...Model-515165143

to be honest i don't think you can use a software program to make it work, not certain but 95% sure you can't tho.,

can you list the make and model of your pc's graphics card so i can do some more searching to find a definitive answer for you.

 

according to the tv manual the 2 hdmi ports are supposed to be next to the antenna port on the back of your tv.

 

here's the manual i found for it, page 12 shows the connection types and locations. :- https://www.manualow...N/Manual/129480

 

to use the yellow red white, i think only the blue is used from that cable type into the yellow then another audio cable is needed that would go from the headphone jack to the red (right) white (left) for the stereo sound output, but again i don't think that will work either from a dvi output without a signal converter/adapter in between.

 

your cheapest and best option would be to stick to dvi to hdmi cable and separate sound cable if required as long as the hdmi sockets are there on your tv like the manual says they are.

 

:popcorn:

 

from your pics :- http://mikaristar.de...aos-2-515089931

the 3rd is the hdmi socket type,

and for what your trying to do at the moment you would need to connect the vga to component cable along with the adaptor to the dvi-i connection on the left, the one with the cross and 4 pin holes in each quadrant to the left of all the other pin holes and not the dvi-d connection on the right with just the single slot next to the other pin holes in your bottom picture to stand any chance of it working in the first place, which i still don't believe it will anyway without a signal converter box that will change the vga signal into either a component or composite signal.
