    hello, i am want to connect my systems VGA port to the RCA of i have both VGA and RCA cables i can cut the wires and make connections accordingly but i just wanna ask that is amplifier necessary or any other interface to convert signals or something like that?

    Because i have seen these cables in many pictures and they simple don't have any interface between.

    and it would be no longer then 16 feet(5 meters).i simple have cables so instead buying one i just want to connect myself :)

    You will probably need a VGA to composite converter. VGA cables carry information that can't simply be wired together -

    Any chance your computer has a composite output? Normal TV resolution is 640 X 480, so the result is not exactly breath-taking.

    yeah thanks for reply i actually checked up on VGA and composite and learned something interesting and i decided to give up cause its not worth trying after i read about the conversion from many sources.

    But Thanks!

    and no it has only VGA not even s-video :-(

    S-VHS will most likely vanish in the next few years, even component & VGA is starting to fade in favor of HDMI and DVI. Analog is dying (dead) as our media has switched over to digital.
