Component Video to S-Video Schematics?


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

Anyone know if this will work?

Thanks!

I don't believe that this can be done. Conversion of this type takes some active electronics.

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.
