Hi Guys,
On my notebook I have a s-video out thingy. I also have an RCA projection television that has an s-video thingy too. I bought a cord, plugged it in on both ends, turned it on, tried all pf the different 'video 1, video 2' etc on the TV, but nothing works. Am I missing something? Do I have to configure something on my TV/notebook in order to get it to work first?

Thanks! :tazz:

Usually for s-video, you right-click on the desktop, select properties, then select the settings tab, and click the advanced button, and there should be some options there.

For me, I use s-video to my TV off a nvidia geforce 4 ti4200 video card, and I ended up installing a piece of software from the nividia site, so that whenever i right-click on the desktop, i have a new option "NVIDIA Analog Display", and in there i can configure my s-video settings, im not sure if this will be the same for you. Then fiddle with the video settings on the projection tv.

Sorry im not much help... I think if you posted what video card you had it would help the more knowledgeabe members on the forum help you. I'm just a noob myself and you probably shouldn't listen to be, but listen to the forum staff :tazz:

I love you!! :tazz:
I had no idea, I thought this stuff was "plug and play" and didnt think to mess around with those settings. I am now sitting on my couch and looking at my new 62 inch monitor ;) thanks babe!

I'm trying to setup my desktop computer now, playing around with the settings. I'll let you know how that goes. ;)
