    with this adaptor and some regular rca cables you can connect your PC to your TV. There may be a few functionality issues as older vga cards are not designed for tvs.

    Just so you know , your computer screen is going to look pretty terrible on a standard def TV. You’ll want to use a TV friendly interface such as Windows Media Center, Boxee or XBMC otherwise you won’t be able to read anything.
