What kind of video inputs are on your video card?
You should be able to buy a cable to convert the monitor output to either component video or S-video depending on your video card...look to see what you have for outputs.

I just used a S-video cable from my graphics card to my TV...

i can do it with an S-video cable

S-video= teh ****
see if you have a DVI on your card/TV...that would be your best bet :)

Wait... what are you trying to get on your pc? TV out? Or Video In? I read it as the latter. I don't think your card has VIVO and you would therefore need a TV Tuner card or something similar.

Use the DVI-VGA connector supplied with your card...

S-video cable out and use the video card properties to send the signal to your television. Or, you could use a program like dscaler. It's quite simple.

well, if you have component video inputs on your TV, you can go that route and plug the colors in as necessary. Or, you can use S-video. It's pretty much just plugging the cables in.
Use that program and configure as necessary.

what do i all need then for s video?
12-13-2005, 08:13 PM
an S-video cable. Plug one end on the video out portion of your video card. The other end into your TV. Select the video input on your TV that corresponds with where you plugged it into. OPen up dscaler and configure.

use the s-video to component video convertor. The picture should be better/sharper/cleaner.
