Labtop to RF TV?

Hello Robotek,

I'm wondering if you know if it is possible to connect a labtop to a RF connection only TV? The labtop has both 15 Pin connection and a S-Video connection and runs on Vista. I also have a Cable box, and DVD/VCR Player connected to the TV. Is there anyway to use any of this to connect my labtop to my TV? Thanks for your time.

    The DVD/VCR has a S-Video connection. Is that the same as a SVHS input? The TV lacks a SVHS connection but has a red and white audio inpts in the back? Could those be used to be connected to the labtop somehow for sounds?

    So, What cables to I have to get in order to connect the labtop?

If you have a SVHS input on the VCR,or the TV, you should be able to get video that way. You will also need to run sound from the h/p out on the laptop, and corresponding audio connection on the TV/Sound System, or you could still use the laptop for sound. Up to you.

Have a quick look for any SVHS input sockets on the back ot he gear and let me know what you find. Cheers

    yes, S-Video is the same as SVHS. It is not likely that you can get the S-Video format to convert to composite video in the VCD/DVD,

    On the TV do you have a yellow video input socket. OR what sort of Video connection is available on the TV. Some have a 21 pin connector called a SCART that can take SVHS signal. Let me know the model of the TV if you are not sure.
