from the cables that i see that comes with it...you should be using the one that has one end that looks like an svideo connector and another end that would hook to the blue port on the device...to hook the device to your computer.....then the component (yellow white red thing) out to...whatever that is...to hook the tv to the box..,it also looks like it's got an rca to coax adapter...in case your tv doesnt have composite out....

now...most computers that have an svideo port....generally only use that port for outgoing info...there are video cards that have svideo in..they're called tv tuner cards or something to that effect...

Yeah it does seem like the s video is only used for out, not in. So you think the only way i will be able to use the cable that has the blue end and s video end is if i had a videocard capable of allowing s video in and not just out? What about if i got a cable that was like the blue end of the cable that they supply but it was like that on both sides. Could i plug it into the port on the box and the back of my laptop or are those blue ports also only out?

Thanks for your time- Joe
