An RF modulator is only used when connecting the RF, as in coax, as in from an antenna or cable box or satellite box, to a device with A/V inputs. S-video will not come into play. As in, nope.
If your TV has a d-sub/PC monitor port you can connect the laptop that way using the laptop monitor out port. You'll need a monitor cable.

I would like to hook up my cruddy old Inspiron 1100 to my TV. My TV has no S-video, but the laptop does have s-video. I am told an RF Modulator would allow me to hook up the video. I also have a nice Onkyo receiver with S-vid, component, RCA hookups. I plan on taking the laptop, hookign up the S-vid through the RF mod and to the TV and then taking a connector from the headphone jack to the RCA jacks in the input on the receiver and... voila! Anyone know if that will work? What's this RF modulator do and how does it work?
