I would like to hook up my laptop to my TV, the problem is I can only output Component (Red,Green,Blue) from my laptop, and S-Video/RCA are my Video-In options. Can I make a simple adapter at this? I can solder fine.
I'm was hoping to do this:
-Take the Green Component Luminance cable, wire that in to the Y / Yground pins on the S-Video cable
-Take the Red/Blue Component Chrominance cables, splice together and wire up in to the C / Cground pins on the S-Video
Yes, these are known as scalers, or scan converters, depending on which conversion you do. These prices are pretty typical from my experience. Given the move to digital signals, I would not be quick to spend this kind of money on S-video,composite, or component.
