Re: To use...or return

Yes. It could be used to send the VGA output to a TV set that has component input jacks (an HDTV). Look at the wire colors on the cable you bought to get them to "lineup" as in the photo below. The cable you bought has the wrong color connectors on it ... but the wires are probably correct. Typical...

I was just thinking...

It's says, "resealable package". Yeah, right. During these reported confrontations, why are the people who refuse to wear a mask the ones who are the aggressors? I would have thought it would be the other way around. My friend the skeptic says that they use dark colors and small print to hide the ex...

Looks like a VGA video to old style stereo audio and composite video outputs.
Some things in computer video tech have changed from year to year leaving a lot of fine equipment in the scrap heap or Parts bin.
I guess that's where mine will end up. Nobody seems to know of any use for them.

Re: A little help with plugging away

Hey! Thanks for the photo assist. I'm trying to find a use for this. Has anyone a suggestion or should I just return them? Please keep in mind that I'm just a regular guy so I have limited technical needs.

Re: A little help with plugging away

I'm not sure if it's the same. I just want to watch youtube videos on my TV. And I'm trying to decide whether the cables (cords with plugs) that I now have are worth keeping.
