VGA (DB15) to Component YPbPr Cable Adapter
How do I connect VGA to Component?
When connecting a VGA connection (for example, from a computer or laptop) to component, it's important to make sure you get a high quality conversion adapter. Since power is required, a simple cable will not do. You must use an intermediary conversion box to both convert the signal and boost it to the source.
VGA to Component Coversion Box
Some older monitors only use component connections and require a VGA to component adapter. These monitors required a powered input source from a converter box. When looking for a conversion adapter, make sure it supports the resolution of your monitor so that text is crisp and clear and images are color matching to their original profiles.
Connecting a VGA source to an HDTV with component adapter
Many older HDTV displays only supported component input as a source of HD programming. If you want to display a presentation on a large display or projector using a VGA connection (which is a very common output on desktop or laptop computers), you'll need to use a conversion box that supports the resolution of your television or display. The most common displays resolutions are 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p. Check the operators manual that came with your display or projector to see what resolution it supports. When looking for a conversion adapter for VGA to component, make sure it supports the resolution you need to use.
