Question about Televison & Video
I am trying to watch a DVD played on my Mac G4 PowerBook on my Toshiba 27A250 TV set via the S-Video input. After connecting the S-Video cable, the Mac G4 recognized the newly connected display/monitor as a TV, but even after switching the TV's "TV/Video Input" to "Video 1," which is where the S-Video port is AND setting the Mac to use that display/monitor, the TV will not display the output from the Mac.
Just for reference sake, at first I still had the regular (RCA-style) video cable plugged into the TV's "Video1" port at the same time I plugged in the S-Video cable, which I figured/found out that you must not do. I subsequently unplugged the other cable, leaving ONLY the S-Video and a left and right audio cable plugged into "Video 1" still to no avail.
Is your TV NTSC or PAL
and does your Mac have a video output setting box ?
make sure your mac is putting out the correct video standard
and try another Y\C 'S-Video Cable'
