how to connect pc to tv?

Hi i brought this computer from a garage sale its a Dell dimenstion 2400. It has windows xp. Pretty good for $35.But the monitor that came with it is horibile. So i decided to connect it to my tv, well tryed. I was told S-video. My tv has that but not the computer. Then I was told V-G-A but my tv dosent have that. Then i tryed this plug that connects to the Pc througth V-G-A, then i add R.C.A cabels and connect it to the R.C.A ports on the tv. (Thats the red,yellow and white.) But it still dosent work. Can any one help me.                                                                                 Thank You.

Home theater Pc

I'm making a home theater pc for out in my living room. I had some problems with getting colour through tv out for some ungodly reason, but installing the catalyst drivers for my ati card seemed to solve the problem. Anywho, the specs are:Pentium 2 450mhz192mb of ram (I have more that was origionally in it, but I was having problems with it just flashing off and corrupting the hard drive, bad ram = corrupt data so I have yet to sort out what's bad)A really old 6 gig hd, I plan to buy a 80 gig hd for it in about 2 weeks.Ati Radeon 7000 w/ dual vga out and tv out obviouslyI think it's fine for playing movies and the such, and it's a generally fast computer, (I have xp pro installed) but the hd slows it down unbearably so hopefully I get that fixed soon with the new hard drive. I've had a 80 gig in it before and I know how fast it gets. Anywho, I need suggestions for a media front, like windows media center type of thing, because on a tv, it's rather hard to see the print on the screen and navigate through files and music. I appreciate anyone that can suggest and software.

nes pc and mouse

Hey guys...i was just wondering two things. First, is it theoretically possible to build one of these nintendo pc's to be operated as a fully functional pc for gaming and internet use, with your tv as a monitor and to install jacks to be able to connect to a surround sound system? also, i am not too good with computers and all that jazz but ever consider a nes controller that would operate as a mouse? this, of course, would be assuming that you could use your pc in the way i mentioned above, if not it would be kind of pointless. i also thought it would be nifty if it could be a wireless deal...you know...just so you don't have to sit 3 feet away from your television...

How to upgrade an old PC to a simple media PC? Answered

I have a very old desktop about 7 years old and its in a very bad condition and can be barely used. It was a home computer before this and  now not many people use it anymore. So I would like to convert it to a media PC to attach it to my TV. I just want a simple media PC that I can watch streams and watch downloaded movies in good quality(Full HD) and just simple PC uses. So I was thinking of upgrading my old PC to a media PC by changing some parts like the graphic cards and all. Bare in mind this is my first time attempting to build a computer so im not very knowledgeable on it. However, I do know the basics of each components in the PC. These are the specs of my old pc ;- -AMD Athlon(tm) 64x3 Dual Core Processor 4200 + 2.2GHz -3.00 GB RAM -NVIDIA GeForce 7300LE -250GB HDD harddisk -32-bit Operating System When I opened up the PC it was in a bad condition and full of dust. When I took out the heat sink, the CPU was stuck to it so I think I damaged the pins of the CPU when I took it out.( But I wanted to change that anyway) By the looks of it there is barely anything I can salvage other than the case. I have attach some photos to show you the condition of it.  I would like to ask some help on some links or advice on is it possible to salvage anything(motherboard maybe) and what components should I be looking at for the uses I want it to carry out. I know a lot of people will suggest to just buy a brand new pre-builld desktop but I really want to try to build this for the experience so I can build a better PC next time in the future.  Thank you very much, Every answer is much appreciated.

Air Traffic Control on PC

Air Traffic control broadcasts from 108 - 138 MHz. (https://www.instructables.com/id/Transistor-Radio-Hack/)A couple of months ago I bought a Realistic Jetstream radio. It was used. I saw it there before. I finally bought it. I thought it was just an FM/AM radio. It said AM/VHF. I thought that was odd. After I bought it I realized that it wasn't an FM radio, it was an Air Traffic Control scanner! That was even better. It comes apart just like the radio Kipkay used in the hack. It was already an ATC radio though. My question is there any way to get Air Traffic Control on your computer? I tried an old tv tuner card. I set the frequency to 122.8MHz. That is the frequency for the local airport in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004: A Centruy of Flight. It is also what my radio picks up. The antenna won't pick it up on the tuner. FM radio works though. I hope all this makes sense.

Is it possible to create a horizontal line on TV screen to be able to move it ???

Hi ... I would like to ask, if you know a way how to create a thin, horizontal line on your TV screen by using a device ??? Device is NOT a string, scratch on the screen, line with a pen ... (and not even PC)... by DEVICE I mean an circuit (micro controller, resistors...etc) ... and I should be able to move the line to any position I want (up/down). EDIT : the line should be projected on the screen without having an effect on the background. So that you could watch a movie and see the line as well. A better example are the "driving lines" on a rear camera (z.about.com/d/trucks/1/0/s/Z/audi_q7_4169.jpg) This is, what I'm looking after. Have you ever come in touch with something like this, or do you have an idea, how to create it ??? Thank you in advance .... zholy

using Smart TV board from dead TV to make standalone player

Hi everybody, recently I hired a new ISP company (italy) with a SO AWESOME VOD TV service, like netflix and also live tv, , the app works very great and with a good quality, the problem it's only available for LG and SAMSUNG smartTV, no way to watch it on PC; mobile, chromcast.... So... i have 2 more Sony TV and a 4k Projector and i don't find a dam solution to watch this app on rather than buy another 2 LG/SAM tvs and throw the projector (which is not an option hehe) So I wonder if I  can just buy a broken LG/SAM TV (even a new one) and use the smart TV board as player, I think, it's pretty easy to just unattach the board and put a power supply, but i wonder what kind of video interface this board uses, I will need any kind of magical WHATEVER to HDMI converter, and also it need to have audio aswell  I read most of the TV use proprietary interface / connector to send image to the panel, the app it's compatible with more than 200 models from LG and Samsung, maybe you guys know the exact model i shloud find to "hack" the board in most easy way Thanks!

Very simple question about connecting laptop to tv? Answered

Hello, I'm in a bit of a rush to get this done and will just have to do it on the day. I want to put a slideshow on a modern TV. I will just be using  jpeg photos; I use mac normally but this will be a PC and there is, I assume, a slideshow function of some sort. I briefly saw the TV; it had scart, hdmi 1, hdmi 2, and those red-yellow-white phono leads. I think that the laptop will have vga and hdmi . Can any one suggest the best/simplest connection to connection ? I mean can I simply use hdmi to hdmi ( is it suitable for this ) or vga to hdmi or scart to vga or any of these combinations  ?   Sorry for the simple question but I just need to get it right for the event with a small amount of time available and have many other things to do. Thank you for any replies..

Can my UPS protect my TV and other Electronics other than my PC?

Hello, I've a recently bought an UPS "Solltek 1400VA/840W UPS" to help me supply my PC when the power cuts off... It works perfectly so far for my PC specially because it only supports the "IEC 320 C-13 C-14 Cables" Outlet which is Perfect for the Power supply Inlet of my PC... But furthermore, Can I use a converter to Convert that IEC C-13 to a Normal wall socket so that i can Plug any other Electronic device too (TV, Speakers, Printers, etc...) to work when the power cuts off.. ( a Converter like this one in the link http://goo.gl/D4mxkZ )  also i Wonder whether that procedure would be Harmful for those Electronic Devices or not (because of the Modified Sinewave type thing ..) Thanks in Advance, and plz Excuse me for my English.. :) Greetings from Egypt

How can I turn a tablet pc into a universal remote control?

I am interested in turning an old tablet pc into a universal remote control for my entertainment system. I would need to build a transmitter compatible with the computer and have a program that could allow it to give the right frequency to be used with a tv. I have looked online and the only things even close to this use 9-pin serial ports. This computer does not have any. Is there another way? If not would you be specific in the circuit needed to be built, I am not very good with circuits.

I'm thinking about building this https://www.instructables.com/id/Robotic-Drink-Mixer/ instructable. However, I would like to get a feel for how it would act in a real world scenario and from what I have seen, many applications like this are run on a touch screen PC.

Weird cable? Answered

OK so im wondering if this on the market (a little back story) Im building myself a home media center using an old pc and xbmc. I'd like to connect to my TV through HDMI so i can get full 1080p video from my media center the only problem being is that my old pc doesn't have an hdmi port only a dvi, so i was wondering if a cable or box existed that could combine the dvi from the graphics card and audio from the headphone port into HDMI allowing me to simply plug the other end into my TV.                                       --------DVI (female from graphics card)                                      /   HDMI (male)<---------                                     \                                      --------Audio from PC (female from little green hole by usb slot on the mobo) Something similar to that, preferably cheap otherwise I'll simply pick up a new $50 card from Newegg.
