I have hooked up my V2000 laptop to a TV/VCR thru the S port to an RCA port on the TV/VCR. I get good picture and sound but it is in black and white. Tried the same thing on another newer TV with the same result. Have been on 2 chats with HP techs but they weren't able to figure it out either. Any ideas?

Hello Take the Wii's audio/video cable and the power cord and hook them up in the back of the Wii. Take the Wii's audio/video cable and plug it into the 'audio-in and video-in sockets on your VCR.Make sure you match the cable colors with the input colors.i.e white goes with white,yellow with yellow and red with red. Take the RCA cable which looks like the picture below,
and plug one end of this audio/video cable into the 'audio out' and 'video out' ports on the VCR.Make sure the cable and ports colors match. Now take the other end of the RCA cable and plug into the 'audio in' and 'video in' ports on your TV.Again make sure you match the color connections.
If your video card supports audio over hdmi in that case you need to find the s/pdif port on you motherboard and the port on your video card (usually right next to and sli or xfire bridge) then you can send the sound thru the hdmi. if not you will have to connect your optical audio cable or a 3.5mm audio out to rca left and right out to your receiver for audio. what video card and mother board are you using? if you know this i can tell you exactly where the ports are for the spdif cable to video card and mobo.
on the back of your VCR there will be a yellow colored port - most likely labeled "OUT" as well as possibly a white/red pair of ports. The yellow is for a VIDEO hookup, the white and red are for AUDIO hookups. These ports use what is called an RCA type connection. Radio Shack, or just about any department store should be able to sell you an inexpensive set of RCA cables.
now on the back of the TV (possibly on the side) you will also have the yellow, white and red ports.
Hook one end of the RCA cable to the colored ports on the VCR, the other end of the cable to the colored ports on the TV.
last thing - the TV most likely has multiple inputs. there is probably a input button on the TVs remote, you need to press that button to cycle through the inputs until you get to the one the VCR is hooked up to. its easiest to put a tape in the VCR and press play - when you get to the right input, you will see your tape...
your vcr has the yellow, white, and red (RCA) ports but your playstation will not. you have to buy an addapter cable to go from playstation to vcr. http://www.gocybershop.ca/customer/product.php?productid=133&cat=163
btw on your vcr the RCA inputs are not colored (if you have the one in the picture. but just as a guide, yellow=video, red=right(R), white=left(L).
You will need a cord that plus into the headphone jack or speaker out jack on the computer and has rca end to plug into the audio input on the TV.It will look like the one pictured.Please rate this solution.
When connecting VCR to TV. Verify all connections. First if the connection is with coaxial cable make sure you signal from outside is screwed to the cable input on VCR. Then the VCR/TV output has the cable running to TV input. If hooking up with RCA cables , which is the yellow, red, and white cables. Hook one side up to VCR output. Yellow for Video, while red/white to audio output matching the colors. The same is done to the Television input. yellow for video, red/white for audio. Do a test recording. Use a blank tape, not one already recorded on. Record about 5 minutes Stop recording , rewind and playback. You should see the difference.
Hmmmm...I dont understand exactly what you are saying, but it sounds like your TV doesnt have RCA ports and you want to hook up a newer DVD player that uses RCA ports. If you have only a cable port (silver threads with a hole sticking out of back) on TV and RCA ports on DVD player, you have to buy a converter. You can get one at Wal-Mart for 20-30 dollars. Or you can just update your TV which it sounds like you badly need to do! :)
