The title explains my question. I noticed on my graphics card's box it said:

S-video and composite video input and output (VIVO)

Does this mean I can connect something (like an xbox) into my pc, and play it off my monitor? I have a cable that plugs into the back of my card that has 2 yellow plugs, on of the yellow plugs has an arrow pointing out of the graphic card, and one has an arrow pointing in. I connected the yellow cord from my xbox into the yellow cord with the arrow that points in my computer. Now I just have to get this to work. How can I do that?

It means you could play video (or games) from your PC on a big screen TV, projector, or other display using component inputs or S-video. Or, you could capture video using those same connections. Sorry, you can't route your Xbox through your PC to the monitor.
