How to Rewire RGB Components to a VGA Cable

Written by bryan roberts | 13/05/2017

High-definition (HD) devices, such as Blu-ray players and certain video game systems, generally connect to television through the use of a component cable. The cable's visual signal is sent through three cables known as RGB cables. If you are trying to connect your HD device to a computer monitor, you can do so by using a special converter to turn your component signal into a VGA cable signal.

Things you need

  • Component cable

  • Component-to-VGA converter

Connect one end of your component cable to the component ports on your HD device.
