Toshiba 27A250 S-Video Recognized by Mac But Not Viewable on TV

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.

You can't watch Hulu on a PowerPC iMac G4. You need an Intel processor based Mac to watch Hulu and Netflix.

Restart your computer after you are done exporting a project and burning it to a DVD. For some odd reason the whole computer lags after exporting/rendering projects. Same thing happens to me when I do video editing/special effects work.
Once you have restarted your computer, try watching the DVD again. If the problem still persists, try using a different codec when you export the FCP project as a SELF-CONTAINED movie and make sure to RE-COMPRESS ALL FRAMES if the problem still persists.

Apple Book G4 won t play or accept Cds Cd R and DVDs


You could try a cleaning disk if nothing is recognized. Something like THIS ONE at Buy.com. You might need a new drive though, which is pretty tricky with an apple. Someone on Craigslist should be able to replace it for about $50 plus the drive. You can find a used drive on eBay I'm sure.

DVD player skips audio and/or frames


PowerBook G4 is at least a five-year-old machine at this point. A DVD drive can **** in lots of dust in five years. Try hooking up to an external DVD drive. If it plays the same discs with no problem, you need a cleaning or replacement. Frankly, an external DVD drive is cheaper than replacing your internal drive.

Get the program "Toast" by roxio software.
in my opinion its the greatest burning tool for the mac. It does dvds and cd for music, data and video and stuff.
