Not only must you connect the two physically with the S-video cable, but also divert the laptop screen display to the TV or replicate the laptop screen display on the TV screen.
On Toshiba laptops, you use the Fn-F5 key combination to play with the display. Look at the screen capture from my Toshiba laptop. While pressing simultaneously on the Fn and F5 keys, use the right arrow to cycle through the various schemes. For your case use the 4th or 5th scheme.
On the back of the laptop there will be a small round connector. This is s-video out. To connect the picture to your tv you just need a s-video cable. Most tv's now have s-video inputs. Just plug into the laptop and the tv , then turn the tv input to s-video (if needed) and you should be seeing your laptop display. To get sound to the tv you need to buy a few more parts to get the sound out of your headphone jack and then put it into the rca sound in jacks on the tv.
We use this setup to watch videos and such at home it works pretty good.
yo can use wich one you want, eiter VGA or Svideo ,for VGA you must have a special cable, if your tv is a lcd is ok you dont ned special conector just plug in normal cable betwin you laptop and the tv. to have sound on tv you need to get the sound from headset on you laptop. your video driver has to be the latest driver, from video driver property you can change the video on tv to use them at the same time.2 screen has to be set on lower rezolution to work at the same time.
Get an adapter to convert the s-video to whatever input you have TV. If your TV has RCA inputs, get an s-video to RCA adapter. If your TV only has RF inputs, you will need to buy an RF modulator, available for cheap from stores like RadioShack.
Aux is used for a buncha reasons, video, dvd, etc.... How is your video connected to your TV? Many TVs have a remote control button to change input, or TV/VCR button, try tapping that if you've got it. need the model of the TV if not applicable
Hi you don't have enough info to give a complete answer but maybe I can help.
The modulator converts the video (and/or audio) output of a DVD player (or camcorder or video game or PC) into a channel 3/4 signal that is compatible with a TV's cable or antenna input. It makes it so the standard audio/video outputs and the cable input (even passed through a VCR) work simultaneously. So...
The "S-Video to RCA" convertor plugs into the "Video In" on the modulator; this allows you to take your S-Video Signal OR your Composite Video to an "RF Coaxial Antenna" input signal.
You should have 3 pcs. the S-video to 3-RCA cable and the coax cable and the modulator. Here is a link to a pic that should help
