Connecting a laptop via VGA to CRT TV?
Trying to save money on a new LCD, I am wondering if there is a proper way to connect my laptop to my existing CRT TV for watching movies (TV has A/V and co-ax inputs) using some device? Apart from price, another reason to stick to CRT is that in India, most (which is atleast 98%) of the TV programming is still 4:3 which doesn't make sense watching on LCD.
I've seen some simple converters on Ebay which plainly seem to change the wiring from VGA to AVI, and some box-converters too which seem to change/convert the signal for CRT compatibility. If we need a box, why are they selling the simple converters? Please help!
