Question about Advent 4211c Notebook
Lots of people are doing this and part depends on what your home theatre has to offer in the way of connections.
YOU DONT NEED TV OUT !
For sound most use the LINE OUT on a computer or laptop and connect that to a suitable input on the receiver using a 3.5mm to stereo phono lead.
If you are lucky enough to have an OPTICAL sound out on your computer and one on the home system that would be a better option.
For the video side again it depends on what your computer has to offer
If it has DVI and your TV or home system has DMI then that is the very best option. Remember to lower the resolution on the computer first and to check and of your graphics card options for dual display. A DVI to HDMI lead is needed for that
NVIDIA graphics cards seem to work best in this area.
If you have a VGA connector on your TV that is another great option and you would only need a VGA lead.
Some cards and laptops have S-VIDEO out. Lots of TV's and home systems have these and the display is quite reasonable. If using S-video connections use a GOOD quality cable.
Some people can only obtain a black and white picture so check your graphics card did not come with any special adaptor.
Another method is composite video Even that is not always 100%
Some laptops need a special S-video adaptor which is just a short little cable to properly enable the S-video and convert S-video to composite. That is probably the worst way to do it.
Using a VGA to component lead is also an option but results vary wildly from no picture to quite good. A lot depends on the quality of the lead once again.
I use the optical sound and DMI lead to power a 50" Sony with great sound and picture.

Depends what sort of TV it is.
If it's an LCD then it should have a socket for a PC VGA connection and a 3.5mm socket for a wire from your laptops 3.5mm headphone socket for the sound. Picture quality = 9/10
Or even better - if the TV has an HDMI socket you can get an adapter to change the VGA cable to an HDMI connector for HD (if your graphics card supports it). Picture quality 10/10.
If you have an older TV with an SVideo input then you need to get an SVideo lead (about £10 from PCWorld) and then plug this into the Svideo socket on your TV and laptop. You may need to go into your settings (right click on the desktop and select properties followed by advanced in the settings tab) to enable the Svideo output before you get a picture on your TV (which should be on the SVideo channel - usually found by pressing the AV button a few times). Picture quality = 6/10 If you've got a really old TV then you're a bit stuffed unless you've got a little yellow output on your laptop which can be used via a scart block and a single phono lead (even just an old one from the hi-fi) but even if you have the socket, the picture would be useless unless you have a massive TV. Picture quality = 1/10 I hope this helps.

In order to display PC video on a TV the PC must have a TV-OUT function and interface, or you need a VGA to TV converter box.
If your PC has TV-OUT functionality, your user manual will tell you this. If you have, Google "Display PC on TV" and you should find some good articles on how to connect the PC to the TV, and how to change the settings on the PC. NB. even if your PC supports TV-OUT, you may still need to buy a converter cable (but not a box).
If no TV-OUT functionality, E-Bay lists some converter boxes from about £15. NB. the much cheaper cables only work on PCs with TV-OUT functionality.
