I need a card with rca/coax out.

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I need a dirt cheap card(about any slot possible) that will do out to tv in RCA or CoAX cable. I am just building a rig for watching netflix online and hulu on my tv in a far away room and need a card that will output to rca or coax. I know most graphics cards have digital out but I can't find a way to change that to rca.

It won't work.... Video cards have a 7-pin miniDIN which can output composite (aka RCA). However, composite (and S-video) are no good at long runs. If it is more than a few feet, you have to go component, VGA, or digital.

You could do a long run of component/VGA/digital and buy a composite convertor box next to the TV....
Once again...

Agreed there. Was just about to say that the composite or svideo don't go well over long stretches. Learned about this the hard way

This is not true.. A 7 pin socket on any current video card is compatible with s-video, so an s-video to rca adapter will work fine. The quality however is another thing. So a 4pin s-video will work with a 7pin output.

Well currently in my other rig I am using an all in wonder ati card to adapt to rca.
post #8 of 10
Why don't you just get a VGA->RCA converter? I've got one myself, and it works pretty well. This way you can use any video card now or in the future and not worry about anything.

This one should do the trick.


Or you can get one with both RCA and component outputs:

Well the RCA one is just $20, and if you actually search through ebay you can probably find cheaper.
