Can a graphics card with output to VGA monitor only output to TV? by Herbert Chan
Hello, I've bought a new TV and it can accept input from a computer. However, my computer system is old and the Graphics card is Inno3d GeForce 2 MX AGP "Value" and the card has only one output for VGA display. Are there anything I can buy that I can output the display to a TV? Thanks.
