Re: Cable Required to conect to TV

Your graphic card has two digital TV outputs, so all you need to do is to purchase a DVI cable and connect your PC to your TV (unless your PC is close enough to 'borrow' the cable from your PC, and you're only doing this on a one-time basis. If your TV doesn't have DVI input, you can purchase a DVI > VGA adapter; but most TV's today have DVI input. The next step is to output your sound to your surround sound system, or your TV will be silent. If you don't have any sound output slots left to plug into, you can purchase a 'Y' - adapter for your speaker port, or else if your PC has a second speaker jack on the front, you could just use that since you're only going to watch temporarily anyway.

I've run a cable from my PC to my TV, and used a 'Y' - adapter on my speaker output, leading to my surround sound amplifier, but since it draws my available wattage to my computer speakers on my computer down quite a bit, I simply unplug the cable leading to the surround sound amplifier when I'm not using it.

Hope this will FixYa.

How do I convert cassette tapes to CD

Hi Ann,

FIrst off you'll need to connect your cassette player to your computer with either composite cables or a red and white sound cable that is on one end and a single stereo plug on the other side. Once you get that connected, you basically have to play the cassettes to the computer and the computer will record the sound (since you plug the sound in like a speaker to the computer) and then save the file for later burning it on to a CD. You'll need some software that will allow you to capture the sound and record it. Examples are Nero, Windows Media Center, VLC, eSoft's Super, Quick Time Player. and many more. Once you play the cassette completely through, the software you use will have type of formats that you can use to record the music. I would choose AVI as my type. Then once you have the AVI file, then burn it to a CD for playing on a CD player. The burning software (windows comes with one standard, but there are many CD burning software products for free) will convert the AVI file into the CD players format so you can play it on the CD player.

Good Luck

Accessing and recording schebuled TV video.

You were not too clear on the problem, but if you mean playback, then a very good program is PowerDVD. It will access the files stored (Pinnacle and other capture devices, store the files as .mpg typed, NOT DVD .vob files.) Software like AVS video Converter, can create the DVD formatted disks; trial is free download.

How to Hook up ATI 9600 to PC

Did you switch the TV input to S-Video on the TV control panel (usually accessible via the remote)? You will also likely need to fit a 1/8" (mini-headphone jack) connector from your PC to RCA (Red and White audio standard) connectors on the TV - this cable can be purchased in many places. The S-Video connector doesn't carry audio like an HDMI connector will.

No signal on HDTV

Your graphics card is probably too old to support HDTV signal (720p, 1080p)

Plasma tv connection to pc


when you say you have even changed the settings to you mean you have used try connect...through settings..??

I would have thought on the remote there is a button for setting up the Plasma TV? you checked to make sure there isn't a menu where you can tell the TV its connected to a PC??

It may be you will have to switch between the two. My reason is that on my TFT..there is a menu....when I check the list..there is an option to connect to PC..AV1 AV2.

With your lead connected you should get something?

hope helps

No image on tv using video card.

If you open the Radeon software utility, in the advanced screen settings you should be able to set "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" to on for the TV screen. Then all you have to do is open your video player software and drag its window across to the tv, then maximise it. If you are having trouble doing this, some video player programs, especially dvd players playing dvds will not show the picture on the tv. If you want to watch .avi files then the best free player around at the minute is DivxPlayer - go to to download. Hope this helps, please ask again if not :)
