    Can this be done? Can I use a ATI Radeon VE card to do it?

    Thanks.

    You may also be able to find a gizmo that converts VGA to composite or S-video. Generally these are marketed for playing computer games on your TV, maybe in the $100 ballpark.

    Note that you're pretty much restricted to 640x480 or less on the TV, because a non-HD TV can't display more than 480 lines.
