I Have the white output thing (left) and the blue output thing (right). But there is a black circle thing in the middle. What is it for? Can this be used to input video from say... a tv, video game system, camera, etc? If so what cable would I need to do so?

My video card is a: Ati Sapphire Radeon 9550 256Mb 128bit video card

thanks

The black circle on your video card is an S-Video connection. This is used for hooking up a tv to your pc.

Just to further clarify dsenette's clarification :blink:

The white connector is a DVI connector, not a HDMI connector, although you can get an adapter if your card is HDMI-capable.

This is, of course, not the point of the thread, but just making sure nobody gets the wrong information.

Cheers :whistling:
