The Xbox is gone now. I knew it was a dino when it was put into the camper so it was the only thing wired "outside" the woodwork. We just did not use it that much. The PC, my laptop, and DW's iPad provide all the gaming we need. (Although I could be talked into a Wii (or Wiii )at a later date).

There are VGA w/Audio cables available it has a mini1/8" at each end.

Lou I think I understand your point, if I have a 72o or a 1080 both have to match. Thanks to both of you for your time and answers.
I'll wait 2 or3 days to see what if any other answers I may get before I try anything, I already had to dowload new drivers to straighten my computer once, I'll wait before I have to do that again.
I'm just glad to have so many smart people out there to ask.

Have you been able to get your TV and net-book working? I own an pro audio/video installation co. and convergence issues can be challenging. If your TV has a VGA/RGB connector you should be fine. As previously posted all you need to do is change the aspect ratio. Look at your TV remote it will say aspect ratio or wide.

Thanks Lou, yes I am using the 15 pin adapter from the netbook to the tv.
The adapter I'm using also has a single sound wire, but it's to large for where the audio sound out port is. So if this information helps you to explain to me how to make it work great. I too am connecting to a 32 inch Olevia tv.
Thanks again.....Joe

Good Morning
Your audio cable needs to be male stereo 1/8" mini at the computer side with two RCA male at the TV side.

If you look at the second photograph (of the back of the TV) along the bottom of the TV (not the side) you will see a row of cables.

From the "right" they are: HDMI cable from the Upconverting DVD player located on top of the PC; the RGB 15 pin video cable from the computer; the red and white RCA plugs from the left and right channel output from the PC using Ziotek 6ft. Mini 3.5mm Stereo Cable Male to RCA Male ZT1900370 - Cyberguys.com; and the power cord.

Quick side track question for Lou, what do you use your computer for? Won't a laptop be easier?

It is my audio visual center. I built it custom for the camper.
Very tiny; very high-end.

I also use it for work. I write aviation training software for an Air Force Contractor who then repackages it to sell to the AF. (I do ok... )
