Output to s-video

Got my Thinkpad used and don't know how to play my power point show (or other stuff like picture files) on my TV. Thought maybe I'd use the s-video port but don't know how to access the thing. Ideas?
Thanks,

Some games show that can play at current video output setting (80028F10)


You should try resetting your video settings.

To do this, turn off your PS3. Then press the power button to turn it back on again, but hold it for a few seconds. The console should beep, at which point you can release the power button.

Then you can re-setup your Display settings (navigate to XMB (main menu) > Settings > Display Settings > Video Output Settings). Choose whichever settings are compatible with your TV/Projector. (if using HDMI, you should probably always use Automatic; it knows what it's doing most of the time).

For a more in-depth explanation, the Sony PS3 website has a pretty good guide found here.

Good luck!

Try copying one episode of your tv shows to your computer's internal hard drive (lets say put it on your desktop) and see if it is the same result. By the way, what is the extension of those tv show files? are they avi, mp4 or mkv? Are the extension of the those files the same with your movie files? Normally, movie files are avi ( divx or xvid) which can be easily played by wndws media player or vlc. If it plays after copying one to your internal hard drive, then erase the one from your WD and recopy it from your internal hard drive. If that works, then just do the same on the othe tv show files. If it still the same result after copying onto your desktop, then just uninstall and reinstall vlc/divx and the codecs. Let me know if these procedures works.

Onkyo TX-SR606 getting no sound from HDMI sources on speakers. I have a motorola cable box and a panasonic DMP BD-35K blueray player both attached to the SR606 via HDMI cables (HDMI3 and 1 respectively)...


Not sure if this is your fix, but I had what I thought was the same problem. I played with my Onkyo quite a bit ensuring the correct assignments for HDMI, audio and all that stuff. Turns out I neglected to make sure the output devices were properly assigned. Many devices aren't default to output sound over HDMI. I changed the audio out settings on the cable box to HDMI and suddenly the Onkyo worked great. I know, I'm an idiot for not checking that in the first place, but maybe someone out there is having the same trouble as well.

How to connect IBM T61 to my Samsung LCD TV 40'' 3xHDMI


If you have an s-video port you will need to buy s-video cables and a separate audio cable for sound. With HDMI you will only need 1 cable for both video and sound. Just connect your s-video cable to your s-video output ( your laptops quick reference manual should show you where your s-video jack is at ) and the other end to the back of your LCD tv video input ( consult your lcd tv manual )
