Alright, so sometimes there are times where you want to plug your computer into your TV. However if your TV is anything like mine, it doesn’t have those new fancy computer inputs. So at first you may think all is lost. Well never fear, because there is still hope. If your TV has a component input (the red, green, and blue connections,) also known as YPbPr, then you can easily put turn your television into, essentially, a large computer monitor.

What You'll Need

All you need to get your computer set up with your TV is the VGA to Component Converter. This unit comes will all the cables that you will need to set the converter up to your TV.

Included is:

  • 1- VGA to Component Converter
  • 1- 6ft VGA Cable
  • 1- 6ft Component Cable
  • 1- 6ft RCA R/L Cable
  • 1- 3.5mm Audio cable
  • 1- 5V Power Adapter

How To Set It Up

To get this converter all set up it is pretty simple. First you need to plug in the Power Adapter into the back, along with the VGA cable You'll notice the little green light on the front turn on.

Second you will want to connect from your PC's VGA output connection to the VGA in section on the back of the converter.

Note: Most likely, if you are using a desktop, your VGA output will be in use, this is fine as you can use the VGA loop through feature on the VGA to Component Converter itself. To do this, just plug your monitor into the VGA out connection on the converter, and then it will mirror the video that is going to the TV to your monitor.

Also while were at it, lets plug in the audio, do this by plugging in that 3.5mm audio cable into your computers audio out (usually colored green on the back of the computer) or out of your computers headphone jack. Then take the other end of the cable and plug that into the Line in section.


Next, go ahead and plug the Componenet cables into your TV and then plug them into the converter it self.

Also go ahead and plug the R/L Audio cables into your TV and plug them into the converter as well.

Now go ahead and flick on your TV and you should be in business. Also, because there are so many different kinds of TV's there are a few buttons on the right side of the unit to change the video settings of the unit.

On the right side of the unit there are a few different buttons that will help with the quality of picture on your TV. Selecting the Mode Button will change through the different screen resolutions, which are 480p, 720p, and 1080i.

The Picture button will change the color settings so you can better match the color of your monitor to your TV.
