Re: VGA to Component cable
Posting #7 here says the standards are different. Computer is
RGB and monitor is "CrCbY (aka YUV)". Devices designed principally
for TV viewing, don't need a lot of video bandwidth, which can
limit the viewing qualities of text on the screen (i.e. text is
unreadable). Computer monitors have much higher equivalent
bandwidth, which is why thin lines and text with sharp edges,
show up clearly.
There is a discussion here about scan conversion. This site uses
popups, which can be stopped by Firefox browser.
And some example commercial devices here:
AVerKey PC-to-TV Converters
SKU# Product Name Unit Price Availability
DKEYIMID2 AVerKey iMicro $99.99 In Stock
PQUICKPLY AVerMedia QuickPlay $79.99 In Stock

DKEY550DN AVerKey550 $299.99 In Stock

You would want to make sure that the output standard of
the scan converter, and the input standard of the TV
are the same. As per the comparison PDF file.
