    hey guys,
    after tring to make serviceable 2 old pc i have , both pc couldnt handle playing a 720p x264 file on my LCD-TV - which is the hole purpose of this attempt.

    now as last attempt i took my sister laptop which is couple years old but i think he could handle those movies , only
    problem is it has only a vga exit.

    i notice there is a vga to hdmi convertor that cost about 34$ (on DX)
    anyone has an experience with that device ?
    are they good ?
    will they realy convert an analog signle to digital ?
    is there lags or that kind of things ?

    thanx

    the quality is not best but works.. and no audio unless u have spdif conversion from analog audio plug.

    not worth it.. find a dell inspiron 1525 cheap and that has hdmi. barely :p

    VGA is analog. HDMI / DVI are digital.
    Best to get something with native hdmi-out. at the very least DVI to HDMI is as good (without the sound)...
