    Hello I have a ACER ASPIRE 5742-I3 and don't know which would be the best way to connect it to a TV which doesn't has a hdmi port but does have a rca.

    I have tried vga to rca but the picture on the tv becomes fussy....

    So shall i try hdmi to rca.... i dont really want to spend loadss :p

    Thanks

    I would be surprised if such a connector existed, seeing as how that is a digital to analog signal. :confused:

    HDMI to Component adapter cables do exist, but they only work with graphics adapters that have TV out capability. Sadly most people who buy them find out they don't work, and they are out another $20.

    "TV out capability?"

    Assuming that's something the graphics card has to have, is there anything else to it than what I get from the name?

    Though I'm still a bit confused as to how an HDMI to component cable would work. Guess it's time for me to do some research. :D
