I have a 2-3 year old laptop running XBMC, and I have an HDTV that I'd like to connect it to.
The only output that the laptop has is VGA (and S-Video - I don't know if the TV supports it) .
The TV doesn't support VGA input, but takes HDMI.
Is it worth buying a VGA-to-HDMI converter? As in this:
Are there any other, cheaper options available?
There's a lot of information around the WWW, but a lot of it's outdated and it's hard to digest everything.
I know of at least one other option, and that's a USB to HDMI connection, but I don't even know what to look for or where to get started on that one. I also suspect it might be a little more complicated. If it's cheaper then it could be worth it.
- Intel integrated graphics card (Intel 945 Express Chipset Family)
- The TV supports up to 1080p resolution
