about what you did in Windows, so I assume that may be the problem. In XP, you would right click anywhere on your desktop (no icons)and pick "properties" from the dropdown menu. Then click on the "Settings" tab. You should see s big "1" and a small "2" Under that picture there should be a choice box for "Display" The first or #1 would be "Plug and Play Monitor" for your desktop monitor and #2 should be another choice which would be your S-video out plug. Pick the #2 monitor choice and tick the box that says "Extend my Windows desktop onto this monitor" Also make the video "Screen resolution" 800 x 600 pixels to start with. That should give you the desktop on the TV. Drag whatever it is you want to see on the TV over to the right side of your screen until it shows up in the TV. Good to go unless you want to try different resolutions but 800 x 600 is good for regular TV resolutions.
Having some trouble connecting my PC to my TV. The PC has S-Video out, but it's a 9-pin female jack on my video card. The card came with a 4-pin S-Video cable. A regular S-video cable cannot connect to this card. Here is the video card:
It did not come with a manual, and there is no manual available on the web-site. I have not tried to contact them, but I hear that their customer service is good.
Anyway, I have tried several things, and in several combinations:
1. Connect the PC directly to the TV with just the 4-pin cable
2. Connect the PC to the TV using the 4-pin cable connected to a regular s-video cable via a s-video coupler
3. Connect the PC to the TV using a 9-pin converter ( http://www.tiger111hk.com/product_info.php?cPath=25_132&products_id=812&osCsid=8ec9e35afc436bb760fc446df0ed40f3 ) connected to a regular s-video cable
And to rule out the REALLY dumb answers, it is plugged into the S-Video 2 input, and the TV is switched to input S-Video 2.
Is it possible there is something wrong with the card? Or have I still not hit on the right connection?
Thanks for any help!
