    It is possible to convert RGB (VGA) to component video (3 RCAs) with a transcoder. These cost $120 for something decent (Audio Authority, etc.). Alternatively, there are really cheap transcoders from TView and other companies that will convert RGB to S-video. You can then convert the S-video to composite using a converter from Radio Shack or Parts Express ($4-5).
