Options for connecting Laptop to TV, TV lacks HDMI input

dark ride

Hi Everyone,

I have done a whole bunch of research on this but have found conflicting information. Basically, I am trying to hook up my newer laptop which has HDMI & VGA outs to my somewhat older tube TV which has composite, S-video, and Component ins. I am looking to do this mostly to be able to watch movies/shows and maybe play some games on the big screen. Has anyone here had any experience with this as far as different options and the quality you can expect? I wouldn't expect it to be top quality, but something that is still watchable without cringing. If someone could point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it. :)
