Everybody wants to connect their PCs to their TVs. Â And why not - it’s so easy to rent movies online, watch lots of your favorite TV shows on-demand, watch thousands of live streaming television stations from around the world, and so much more. Â The problem is that not everyone’s PC has the same connection as their TV.
We started small - by offering our most popular product - our VGA with Stereo Audio cable. Â Then we added the newest technology to hit the market - fully digital video and audio HDMI cables. Â Then we thought we’d expand into connecting PCs to older TVs. Â You know the ones - the old tube type with the familiar yellow, red and white input jacks? Â For this we sell our popular S-Video with Audio cables.
But even with these three cable offerings, we found a lot of folks who still couldn’t connect their PCs to their TVs. Â It turns out that old tube-type TVs are still very popular. Â But there are many, many PCs that don’t have the required S-Video output. Â The good news is that almost ALL PCs have a VGA output (I’ve never seen one that didn’t). Â So we now carry our VGA to RCA Composite or S-Video PC to TV converter.
This converter only sends the video signal to the TV. Â So we recommend our S-Video with Audio cable for use with this product (that’s why we offer the two as a combo for only $10 more - a great deal).
There’s one more PC to TV solution in the works. Â And that is connecting PCs to new HDTVs that don’t have VGA inputs (also called “PC inputs.”). Â I’m going to guess that only about 10% of new HDTV’s don’t have VGA inputs; but all new HDTVs have HDMI inputs. Â So in a couple of weeks we’ll be rolling out our latest offering Â - a VGA to HDMI converter.
