I have a S-video out on my laptop. When I hook up to my TV and play anything with Media Player or WinDVD, the video is blank. Anybody know how to fix this?
Go to the control panel of your video card or video device -- it should allow you to indicate whether you want the notebook LCD to show the display or the external monitor (TV through S-VHS) or both.
Also, some notebooks allow you to toggle this function using Function/F4 (but check your specific notebook for the correct keys).
