Gambled & Lost – PC VGA Video Out Adapter (VGA to S-Video + Composite) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Can't beat the price. Good quality build.
Cons:
Even though I did my research, made sure my video card (ATI HD 4850) supports TV OUT through VGA, It didn't work.
Other:
I tried going this route first because it was a cheap alternative to buying a PC to TV converter. I tried in vain, both the S-Video & Component separately to no avail. I was trying to connect it to an older 50" projection TV. So now i'm wondering if it's a defective, or maybe the TV is too big. Apparently its not the video card (according to the manufacturer) I'm going to borrow a friends smaller TV & try it out. If it works i'll let you know.
Bottomline:
I haven't seen any reviews that it actually worked for anybody. But for the price its worth a try.
