What kind of TV is it, does it have a DVI, if it doesnt your going to need adapter cables to split the S-video to composite and then into the TV or scart, or an S-video to scart connection, once you have the card hooked up to the TV you need to go into the control centre and set it to force tv detection then enable the second monitor in the display page, and then on the tv you should find a grey screen on the TV probably this is where the desktop has been expanded across if you move the mouse off the screen it will be seen on the TV and if you keep going back to the desktop. You have to play with it, you can copy the desktop onto the other screen and you can set the tv as primary so the desktop shows up on it. Also in theatre mode there are seperate settings so it will play any video on the TV full size etc.
