You need an S-video cable to connect the card to an S-video input on your TV. Then you need to change the video input on your TV to S-video. After it's connected you'll need to reboot your PC to recognize the TV.

it isn't an s-video, the calbe i have just hooks up, and it is a cable that just goes to a streight video cable, a RBG vid cable, but i never thaught to restart my comp, but i have the ATI control pannel, and it said i don't need to restart for it, but i guess i sdhould give it a shot, and other ideas? but the connector o\i am using for the vid card is an old one form a VooDoo 3 3000 16 mb AGP, so it might be the adapter i am using...but asny other segestions?


also, it is not a S-video thing, it is like the connector on a mouse or keybopard, or a coaxil for an old Sega Genisis

That adaptor should work. It's an S-video to RCA adaptor. That round connection that looks similar to a keyboard or mouse connection is S-video. If you have S-video input on your TV you can run an S-video patch cable between them. I do this with a DLP video projector. I also have an ATI (9700Pro), and I have to reboot in order for the system to recognize my TV output after the cable's connected.
