  • Connecting a Desktop PC to a CRT TV.

    Hi fellow AAers ,

    Ok Iím not very computer savvy so have a question .....

    Iíve pulked out one of my old desktop PCs thatís loaded with retro gaming console programs and games but canít find the old CRT monitor for it as I believe itís in my Ex wifeís house & we donít talk full stop so canít ask for it. It looks crap on LCD , anyone got any ideas on how I can connect the PC to an old CRT tv that only has white/red/yellow AV points & sVideo? No usb or HDMI ports being an old CRT . Or even better where can I find a CRT PC monitor ?

    Thanks in advance for your advice & help.

    Cheers

    You can output via s-video if you have a video card with it. I've done it and it looks okay, not great but definitely useable. I've also used a video converter. Got a cheapy from jaycar (about $30.00) and that worked quite well too. As for picking up a CRT monitor, people are generally throwing them out so hard waste, your local Tip shop, gumtree etc.
