How to connect HD6850 with Analog TV?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello.

I wish to connect my HD6850 Graphics card to my old 21.5" TV. The TV has analog TV aerial plug and 3 pin RCA connectors.

I wish to have both the Audio and Video from the TV. So what do I need to accomplish it? I think only HDMI is able to carry both audio-video signals. So will a cable with HDMI on one end and 3-pin RCA on the other end will give me Audio-Video from my TV? If not, then what else would I need?

Also, my card's one DVI is used by my PC monitor, so will it be able to use another port for connection? I have heard that some cards are incapable of using both DVI or one DVI and one HDMI at the same time?

My Specs:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Link
Motherboard: ASRock M3A785GXH Link
GPU: ASUS 1GB 256-bit Radeon HD 6850 DirectCU Link
RAM: Kingston HyperX 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 Link


Thank you for your help.

Get an RF adapter like the one that came with the old PSone.
Or see if you can get a D-SUB to RCA converter

Thank you for your replies. I guess that buying a new TV with HDMI will be the best option. But it is something I don't wish to do in the near future coz if I'm buying, I'd buy a 47" or bigger and I nether have money, nor space (as of now!) to accommodate it.

Thanks for the help though smile.gif
