Default Anyway to hook up?

A computer to a regular TV? Think there is some sort of converter to go in as the yellow/white/red plugs?

If your card has a composite output you have half of it licked. The sound comes from the speaker output on the sound card. You can get a patch cord that has the 3.5mm plug on one end and the RCA plugs on the other.
If your vid card doesn't have the composite out then it depends on how much you want to spend. You can either swap out the vid card that has one or get a vga to composite out converter.
Shop around online for a good deal. Local shops tend to jack up prices.

as people have said if ur graphics card has a S Video out on it you will be fine.

then you will have to buy a cheap male - male s video lead, and a 3.5mm to red and white audio lead simple,

but if u dont have a graphics card and dnt want to buy one then u need one of these http://www.computercasesandcables.co...CV-25120_L.jpg

and a 3.5mm to red and white audio lead if u tell me where ur from i cud suggest a website to buy them from

uk or us

hi,

here goes

umm ebay will more than likely have everything you need but ill look at jus shops

vga to s video converter is here : http://www.eforcity.com/pothvgasvrc1...iJp-j9AyD575kr

then u will need a male - male s video cable here : http://www.cpusolutions.com/8004744c...CBVIDSVIDEO5FT

then u want a 3.5mm headphone jack to red and white audio lead which is here : http://shopping.redorbit.com/product...n=Froogle+Feed

so that shud be it check that ur tele has a s video slot and red and white audio leads slot.

if it does not u will need 1 of these : http://cavuk.com/product.php?productid=1180

which as u can c adapts everything to pluginto 1 scart socket simple.

u can probably find better prices but now u no wot your lookin for u can look for better deals on ebay u will prob get it for well under half the prices mentioned there

BTW the white and red cables are for audio only all you need is the yellow one.

if you have a regular VGA only card there is a VGA to PAL\NTSC(aka tv) but there like 80$ at the lowest im pretty sure

Yeah I know that I only need the yellow one, but some people may not have known what plugs I were talking about. Thanks for all the info, looking into everything.
