Need to connect 6100 to component in on TV

Postposted on Thu Nov 08, 2007 3:47 am

So I got a deal on a 6100 board so I built a low power le-1100 computer 'for the kids'.

Now I'm having so much fun encoding video to H.264 I want to plug the computer into my living room tv instead.

I have a non-hdtv. The only input available on the tv is component in (y/pb/pr). As far as I know a vga to component cable is not going to work.

So I'm looking for suggestions. I've never connected a pc to a tv before. Is an ATI video card my cheapest solution? Would vga to component work if I got a 7025 motherboard?

Honestly, component isn't going to buy you anything over s-video on a non-HDTV. Does the 6100 not support TV-out at all?

svideo is not an option. I don't have svideo out on the motherboard and I don't have svideo in available on my tv.
