  • I purchased the same cable from a shop at Clifton Schon Circle, near Sohni Sweets, but it was not working at my tv. It is requested to show us a picture so it will convenient for us to recognize it.


  • not working guys..i bought one from market…trying to connect my laptop and pc with my tv..but it can’t work

  • after reading this article I bought a dany vga to rca cable which has one video, one s video and two audio connectors. first of all why this cable has two audio connectors as vga does not carry audio. However I did connect my tv with my computer and laptop via this cable but it did not work. As per my research this cable does not work on every vga card and a scan converter is better instead of this cable which can convert the output of any vga card into video signal but for audio we have to connect the tv with a separate audio jack to rca cable. Another much better option is to use a vga plus audio to hdmi converter cable if your tv has hdmi input.
    I would like to ask the author of this article that may we use this dany vga to rca cable for converting the vga output of dany tv device into video signal.
