I have an old Sony VAIO with onboard video (64mb) that I'd like to use as an htpc. My hdtv is an RCA Scenium with HDMI, S-Video, Component, and Composite. I stopped by the store and picked up an hdmi-to-dvi adapter and a dvi-to-vga cable. I booted up the pc but unfortunately there was no video from the hdmi input. Im just looking for the easiest way to turn the pc into a dvd/surround-sound player, preferrably without having to upgrade it. Im not an hdtv whiz, is it even possible to take vga output to hdmi input? Would I need a video card with a dvi connection? Any help is appreciated.
