What do I need to send HDMI/VGA to Composite with audio?[SOLVED]

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
This isn't necessarily a HTPC question but it best fits here so here goes.

Okay, so I ordered a HP DM1z which has HDMI and VGA out on it. I was wondering if there is a way I can use either of the two with my older TV(uses composite video) with the ability to output audio? If possible, what wires would I need (link)?

I know I could do VGA to Composite(red/white/yellow) but I don't think audio transfers over VGA.

you will need to get the audio out of the headphone jack to your tv, just a 3.5mm to RCA cable.

also composite is red/white=audio, yellow=video. are you talking about componet maybe?

anyway here is a link for vga to compiste adapter(VGA to S-Video/RCA) http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10430&cs_id=1043012&p_id=2509&seq=1&format=2

Cool. Thanks. I am talking about Red/White/Yellow. so I just need the first and second links you provided me with?

Also, my girlfriend has an HDMI tv, would getting this be a good option? - http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=102&cp_id=10240&cs_id=1024008&p_id=3992&seq=1&format=1#largeimage

Doesnt your video card have to have "tv-out" in order for that to work?? I bought, actually traded for, a GTX 260 because it has S-video out. From what I read when looking into it, your video card has to have a TV-out capability to work with composite only TVs.

Correct me if Im wrong, because I would rather use that adapter with my 5750, and ditch the 260. Or just keep it for FaTs and such.

Mine's a laptop but it's worth the 2 dollar risk.
