could we make the tv as the primary desktop so it is the only 'monitor' plugged into it?

Yes you should be able to make the TV the primary output.

Do you intend to have a secondary screen?

if not:

Then when you make the VGA connection the signal will only be sent to the TV and it will be you default monitor.

yes, but could the primary (well, the only) be sent from the S-Video? I won't have any other display connected and nothing in the VGA.

I don't know for sure if the S-video can be the primary that is something I will have to research...

What is the model of the computer assigned by Dell?

I can look in to this further with this info

Thank you Good Luck

usually you will there is a model number on the front of the case(some where near the power button)

also if you look somewhere on the case or in the case there is a service tag number you can click here on The Dell.com site and input the numbers there and it will tell you everything about your computer. If you can't locate the number from the case it self

Good luck

Well after looking in to this a little more I haven't been able to locate information on:

Using your S video as a primary output.

You could try it out (it might work)

I'm sorry about this

Good luck keep us posted

haven't replied in a while, I know, but i was looking into this stuff again only recently...

I looked into Ooma and I don't know what to make of it...

I still think Magic Jack is better, but I want your educated decisions

Also, what are good internet tv resources?

I know there's Joost, Veoh, Hulu, etc... any others?
Any way to get free or cheap channels, like actual channels (CNN, PBS, Nickolodeon, etc)?

Also, I heard there was a way to get free/dirt cheap cell phone service using certain phone apps that take advantage of wi-fi and 3G...

Please and thank you! :)

We got Ooma and Roku and returned both.
Ooma because our phone company, which also provides us with cable and internet, is giving us an upgraded cable service and free phone for two years :)

We'll get it after that and once Ooma comes out with Telo :)

Roku was all right, but the selection leaves something to be desired.
We'll stick with cable for now
