I am not certain if this is possible or not but is there some simple device out there that would allow me to display what is on my computer monitor on my television? I was hoping for something simple. but if you have any advice please let me know.
There are several possibilities:
to get a device that takes RGB and output the signal to the TV (there are boxes to do it or some graphics adaptor have a way to do it from the RGB output - like my old Matrox G-200 and guess the 550);
to get a graphics adaptor with TV-out;
to use your graphics adaptor to feed the signal if your TV set receives RGB (I have a Sony that does)
