Ok heres the deal. I own a Sharp Aquos 1080p HDTV. I went and got myself a new laptop this past week (which has an HD DVD rom)!! I was so thrilled aobut it since I do not have an HD DVD player. Once I opened the box, I was so bummed that there was no HDMI nor DVI output from the laptop!!!! Any suggestions on hooking it up to my HDTV without loosing much picture quality? PS. there is RGB, and S-video outputs only....

Thanks guys!

Seems pretty silly to have a HD-DVD drive on your laptop with no way to connect it to a TV, huh? I'm no expert, but it seems like you're pretty much SOL.

Steve, your new laptop is not a Toshiba?

"The most striking feature of the new Qosmio is its 17-inch diagonal widescreen, full-HD liquid crystal display. This WUXGA display supports 1920 x 1200 pixel resolution, achieving true high definition and the ability to playback HD DVD content (1920 x 1080 pixel). Beyond this, the new Qosmio also integrates an HDMI output in its external interface, allowing the PC to be hooked up to an HDTV and to act as the video source for a large-sized TVs or home theater projectors." ith_HD_DVD-ROM_Drive/
