I have a Averatec 3280, which does not have an s-video out. It does, however, have a VGA Monitor cable port. Im wanting to connect my notebook to my television as larger screen. I was wondering if there was any such thing as an USB-to-svideo or vga cable-to-svideo , or maybe if there was such thing as one of those red, yellow, and white cables, which has an ethernet connector on the opposite end. In other words... with an VGA Monitor cable port and/or several USB cords, is there a cord or adapter that can convert either to S-Video or to an audio-video three-pronged cord, as to connect to my tv? I hope what I am asking makes sense. If it does and it is possible, can you recommend the name of the cord or adapter that I would need to use? I cant for the life of me figure out why averatec computers would come with an VGA Monitor port, but not an s-video port


thanks
