I have a laptop which I would like to connect up to an old TV to watch streamed shows on. It has an HDMI port as well as a VGA port. The TV has a couple of SCART ports.
My flatmate has a cheap ALBA DVD player (1 SCART port to the TV and a 5 RCA RGB AV) and a relatively new CISCO Virgin media box (1 SCART connected to the TV and and HDMI port).
First off, if I buy an HDMI cable and connect it up to the Virgin box, will this work?
If not, would an HDMI to 5 RCA RGB AV cable via the DVD player work. Failing that, what would you recommend, stopping short of a new TV?
Thanks for your help
