    Presumably :-

    1/ There is a SCART socket on the TV (and it probably accepts RGB and composite video signals if there is no s-video).

    2/ You are outputting from PC via a video card with TV out which provides s-video and composite video signals.

    Therefore :-

    You can get a SCART adapter with s-video, composite video & stereo audio connections and hook up with RCA -> RCA composite video (+ stereo audio) cables. Unfortunately, composite video is not a high quality signal and it is likely to be unsatisfactory.

    Alternatively, you could invest in a scan converter and ouput to TV from the video card's VGA socket to get an RGB signal to the TV.

    I use a dongle similar to this - picture attached...

    Front end is scart, the back end is either S-VHS, Composite and the audio.

    Scart goes straight into the TV. Jobs a good 'un.

    Got it from a local electrical shop, but I'm sure dixons or somewhere similar will sell em.

    Hope this helps.

    Paul.
