I have a somewhat recent, but already outdated, albeit nice analog TV. I also have a dell laptop and a MacBook (with an adaptor for standard VGA monitor). I wish to use one laptop or the other (but not both at once) to watch a movie. How can I connect both video and audio of a laptop to that TV? Do I need a power adaptor due to digital to analog conversion? I need a cable that is ideally 15 feet in length, but anything in 12-18 feet range should be fine. Specs are below. Not sure if S-video or RCA is better. I do not know that much about all of the jacks, to be honest. What should I buy? I must spend under $50 on the gadget, preferably $35 or less.
Thanks, and let me know what questions you have.
