ok, i was a bit unsure about where to put this thread and this seemed like the best of a bad job.

Anyway I've just bought a 32" HD-ready lcd tv and i was wondering what would be the best way to hook up my laptop (a Toshiba Satellite 5200-701) to the tv to watch video files?

The TV has: (From manual)

Euro Scart Socket (AV1/AV2)

Component Input

RGB/Audio Input

HDMI Input

S-Video Input

Audio/Video Input

RS-232C Input (CONTROL&SERVICE) Port

Antenna Input
Connect over-the-air signals to this jack.


I assume the the RGB would work but i was wondering if anyone had any suggestions and what cables i would need to buy.

cheers

If that RGB is a 15 pin VGA connector (which it most likely is since it mentions component video separately), then all you need for HD resolutions is a standard VGA cable. You can pick one up from a local electronics store or even from a place like Wal-Mart. Also get a male to male 3.5 mm stereo audio cable if you want to play sounds through the TV speakers.
