    Well our church project that we use for services kinda had an accident and now the VGA port does not work all the time.

    What i am looking for is something i can use to hook up my computer to the projects composite inputs (or s-video).

    So...i would use the mini vga to vga converter, then a vga cable, then the converter, and then finally a composite cable (or s-video) to hook it into the projector.

    So has anyone used one or has one they can recommend??

    This is only a temporary fix and we will be getting a new projector in a little while. But the way we are doing it now is a real pain.

    Thanks for any help!!

    Why not simply get an Apple Video Adaptor? It converts yours mini-VGA port to composite and/or S-Video instead of full size VGA.

    1 S-Video, 1 Composite (RCA). I'm not sure if you can use both at once. If you can they will both display the same thing.

    SWEET JESUS!! Thanks a lot for finding that (showws how much i looked for one :( ).

    I actually ordered a different one but the church is still going to need a converter when my iBook is no longer there. Not to mention i can find other uses for the converter.

    Again thanks for letting me know about the converter.
