Hi, I have a NVIDIA GeForce 6800 with a tv out port. My tv has an svideo port, but it is 4 pins, whereas my card has 7. I have a cable with 4 pins on each end. My question is, how can I get the two to connect? I assume I have to buy some sort of adaptor, but I haven't been very lucky so far. Also, do I have to use the tv out port to connect? If I found a cable with DVI on one end and component video on the other would that work? Thanks.

Reading this should help on connecting s-video 7-pin to your TV.

You won't be able to use the DVI output to connect to a tube-type CRT TV because DVI is digital, and the input to a CRT TV must be analog, unless you buy a digital-to-analog converter box which is extra expense. If, however, the TV is an LCD type with a DVI input, then you could simply connect it to the card with a DVI cable, no converter needed.
