I have a somewhat older laptop and wanted to use it to play media on my large HD TV.

The output for video is VGA and the output for sound are just the typical 2 channel headphone jacks.

I need to know what equipment I need in order to hook this up to my TV so that I can play any kind of content, from standard definition to high definition.

My TV has component/composite in and RCA in as well.

Thanks for any recommendations!
