Thinking I was being clever I bought a set of cables which claimed I didn't need a seperate DVD player for my TV, I could just use these cable to plug my PC into my TV. Now the audio part is easy, my laptop has the correct port for that. But I don't have the right card in my laptop. So ... apparently I need a TV-Out Card, which has a RCA-Type socket. The thing is I really don't want any more devices installed internally on my laptop, does anyone know of an external module I can use??
Pounding at a thick stone wall won't move it, sometimes, you need to step back to see the way around.
Well, you can get them, but in all honest you'd be hard pushed to find a half-decent one for any less than the price of a DVD player. I recently bought a perfectly servicable multi-region, VCD, SVCD, MP3, CD-R-compatible DVD player for �99 from ALDI. Typical genlocks and external TV encoders start at a couple of hundred pounds. I don't know how much this cable set cost you, but I'd suggest returning it or selling it on and shopping for a decent, low-cost DVD player. Sorry .
