    Well how old of a machine?

    If you want to watch regular, cable, or satellite TV you will need to get a TV card. They can be had for $20 or less, but you get what you pay for.

    First of all you need to see what kind of in ports your TV has. Is it Composite only? or what? If so then you need to check what kind of video card you have. If it's a ATI card you have AVIVO which means there should be and adapter with composite out. I'm not sure if there is an Nvidia version of this or not. If not the TV tuner Card option.

    I have to say though if you have a crappy old TV it's not really going to look that great. You really need a good 720P TV at least to get a good picture with a readable font. What kind of TV do you have?

    I believe you can get scart adapters for composite or s-video. I don't really know how good it's gonna look though. What size and resolution is your TV? You'd probably be better off using a monitor or LCD to view your movies honestly.

    Try this link.

    Your movies are going to look -- at best -- like an old VHS movie. You are better off finding an old CRT monitor for cheap.
