For a home theater:
First you need a high quality video card with lots of dedicated video memory and video outputs that is compatible with your T.V. Then you need TV tuner cards in your PC for both analog and HDTV signals. Some TV tuner cards support both HD and analog signals such as the ADS Tech Instand HDTV PCI card. You need a high quality sound card that supports 6.1 or 7.1 surround sound.
Connections for any:
Connect the audio output on your computer sound card to the audio inputs on your T.V.
Determine the type of input cable that your tv will accept. Connect the S-Video from your computer to the T.V.'s s-video input. Some T.Vs don't have a s-video input, some have Component which consists of three RCA-like connections colored red, green and blue. Others use Composite, which is a yellow RCA like connector. So it depends if your TV has the proper hook ups.

After you hook the cable up to the tv, go into the tv's menu to make sure the input mode is set to s-video. then go into the control panel on your laptop and find the settings for your video card and set the output to "TV" or "Clone"

Let me know :)

The yellow/red/white cables are COMPOSITE cables. COMPONENT cables are RED/BLUE/GREEN. You can buy those at any electronics store. Your best bet, though, is to stick with HDMI if you can.

Problems some times hooking computer to TV


Before hooking up the laptop to the TV, lower your resolution on your laptop then shut it down. Just for testing purposes I would try 640X480 since you can always change it. Hook up the laptop to the TV and then turn on your laptop. See if it goes into windows with the display showing on the TV. If it does then reboot the laptop and try a few more times. If your consistently getting video then you can play around with the resolutions.
If your still having video issues, try a new video cable. Also update your video drivers to the latest version on your laptop. If the problem still persists update your BIOS to the latest version.
Hopefully that will do it but if not then its an issue with the motheboard.

Connecting laptop to lcd


You may need to use the S-video cable for video. Make sure video mirroring is disabled on the powerbook. Also, make the external monitor the primary display by dragging the menu bar to it in Displays preferences (Mac OS X) or the Monitors control panel (Mac OS 8 and 9).

S Video cable


you need to toggle the display on your laptop. be sure that when you connect the tv or external monitor the laptop should be turned off. to toggle the display kindly press Fn followed by F8. for old tv's you need to have an S-video cable. for LCD monitors, either VGA or DVI cable will help.

i hope this info helps you.

Hooking a laptop to a lcd tv


If your LCD TV has VGA input, then you can buy a cable that goes vga out of laptop to VGA in of TV... Also you can get an audio cable that goes from line out of your laptop to 2 rca jacks for your TV...

Radio Shack sells both types of cables - and you can also buy them from many online retailers if you look for video or audio video cables... I got a paired set from pcconnection.com
