    kinda same problem. I have tried the settings,will not send video out. I have tried Fn F8 and still nothing on TV. This has worked before but trying to restore to that date laptop will not allow. video works on laptop fine, and I can slide icons off screen, but the wall paper for the laptop never shows up on TV. Exuasted, can you figure this out. I have also updated the NVIDIA GeForce2 Go and still nothing. Thanks Fritz

    I am using an SVHS cable, assuming that it is S-Video cable, to connect latitude D-800 S-video port to TV's S-Video port. But on Fn-F8 nothing happens. I can connect this laptop to TV using DVI, but i need to connect usin s-video to get both video and audio (the input selection on TV has S-video and two RCA ports for input-2, and if i use DVI, i can't get audio). Can anybody help?

You’ll need two outputs on your laptop that are typically found on most: the first is a small round yellow socket usually found on the back of your laptop, which is the S-video socket. The other socket you need is either a line out (unlikely) or headphones socket (more likely). You also need a TV with the correct inputs, which will ultimately decide which cables you need. The solution you decide on will be determined by your budget, and the prices and codes below are taken from here, so shop around and you may get a better bargain locally or online.

First, you need two separate cables for video and audio: S-video to S-video (£3.60, 35551), and Stereo 3.5mm plug to 2x RCA plugs (£2.80, 35491). Both cables are two metres long and longer cables are also available from the same site. Your TV will require either equivalent S-video and RCA audio inputs or a SCART socket - if it only has the latter, you’ll also need a SCART adapter (£3.25, 35570).

Once done, plug them all in and switch your TV on, switching to the A/V channel. If nothing appears, open the Display Properties Control Panel, switch to the Settings tab and click Advanced. Look for a Display tab or something similar where you’re able to switch on the S-video port to enable the laptop’s display to route through the TV. Finally, when watching DVD movies (you’ll need a DVD player to do so), look for the option to run them full screen, so you get the best possible picture from your TV

Can i capture live video to my asus a43s laptop via the hdmi cable? i am using a sony hdcam with hdmi


The HDMI on your laptop is only for output unfortunately so you won't be able to capture video via it.
You may need to look at something like this

If hdmi cable sends audio and video info from my laptop to my tv why can't I hear anything? I have video but no audio. the Audio all say hdmi/high def audio and are working properly


Have you "muted" the sound on your computer?

Have you "muted" any of the outputs (MIDI, speaker) on your computer?

Have you "muted" the sound on the TV's built-in speakers?

Have you "muted" the sound on any external speakers that are connected to your TV?
Does your TV have _more_ than one HDMI port? Have you tried them all?

If so, connect your laptop via THEIR HDMI-cable to their TV.
Also, connedct your laptop via YOUR HDMI-cable to their TV.

How do I change the settings on the video part. The AVI file type is too large to send to my prof. via email


You might be better converting the video file to MP4, this will compress the video file, but can your Prof. view a MP4 video file.
You can copy the file to a CD or DVD disc (depending upon the size of the video file) and post it.
To create a smaller video file you need to re-create the video at a lower resolution, but this maybe still be too large to send by e-mail.

Can I go from VGA to SVGA?


If the question is can I convert my composite video output to a super video input then the answer is NO,

The composite is coaxial (2 wires) the S-Video uses 4pins and there is no S-Video output on a Presario 1200 laptop.

You can however use a Multi-AV SCART adaptors with Input/Output signal switch where you plug in the composite video output into the top video and 3.5 mm jack stereo audio into the mono audio connections on top.( via a stereo to mono cable)

How do send monitor signal to my tv


It depend on what input your TV has the what output the laptop has.
Ideally you would connect over VGA cable. Your Laptop is very likly to have a VGA out put but if your TV is old it may not have a VGA input.

If not you will need to connect Via S-Video cable which all TV's & laptops have. Note that neither VGA or S-Video will carry audio so you will need a seperate audio cable if you want the sound to come through the TV speakers. This is normall just a wire with mini stereo jack on each end.

Connecting and recording camera with s video output on 1221 tx


Your laptop has Tv Tuner card and if it takes TV input via cable , you get a S-Video / DVD cable to regular cable converter and use the laptop as a video recorder - if you are in US , any Radio Shack will be able to help you with the cables
