[T420] VGA to S-video or composite video

2011-12-12, 23:41 PM

I want to connect a T420 to an older TV.  Can I use this VGA to s-video/composite adapter?  The website says:

 

"Your  video card MUST be able to support s-Video or Composite out through it's VGA port. This is known as a TV out function. If you don't know if your video card can do this, then call the card manufacturer and ask them "Does my video card support S-Video or Composite Video out through its VGA port?""

 

So, does the video card in the T420 (Intel HD 3000) support S-Video or Composite Video out (more importantly composite video) through its VGA port?

Hi biznatch!

 

The T420 does not support s-Video or Composite out through it's VGA port. You need an active VGA converter box.

 

Hope this helps!
