    I know that one is too short. It's just to give you an idea of what you need - in a longer length, of course.

    I bought a cable with VGA on both ends. Then a small adapter with an S plug. It didn't work?

    First I want to thank you for the time you took to help me. From the info you sent me it is expensive to setup VGA to S. With my XP computer it was just one S to another S input. I guess they don't make a cable with VGA on one end and S on the other. The one you sent is well over $100. Do they make any good ones that are cheaper?

    Thanks! Are there more reasonably priced converters available?

    I get it! The 32.80 converter might work? But the more expensive will work?

    I don't know that either will work. Video conversion is hit or miss, and there are often quality problems. If you want to try it, buy something you can return if it doesn't work. No one here can give you any guarantees. Success varies greatly by TV and computer and converter.
