Ah, the desktop and the laptop... completely different in so many ways. First of all, if we are talking about a TNT2 graphics card, the output is VGA. If you are connecting to a TV with an S-Cable, you are connecting to a TV with an output port other than Video. I know that on laptops S-cables are almost always S-Video, but on desktops, this is less common. There really isn't a VGA to S-Video cable I can think of, and so you will need to try something a bit different.  What inputs are available on the tv you are trying to attach to? I can tell you that there are competent adapters for VGA to Component, VGA to HDMi, VGA to DVI (though this is more of a MAC thing) and AVP (completely a mac thing). I have not, however, found a direct way to VGA - Yellow display (AV) without more than 2 devices between.
Let me know your inputs, and I'll give you my best (the best) possible solution... it matters little if this is a MAC or PC, but let me know that too if you will.

S-video out to tv nvidia 9300 gforce won't work


obvious things first. have you tried the other input plugs on the TV? do you get the same problem with plugs 1 and 2?
you can try only having the TV connected to the Graphics card and turning on the PC see if it comes up as the primary display automatically.
have you tried configuring the Nvidia setting so ONLY the tv is a display instead of dual monitor?
doing these will rule out faulty cable or faulty S-video plug or Faulty TV input plug.

If you have the right drivers set up for your video card, you should be able to to set up screen mirroring from your display settings. Right-click on your desktop, select Screen Resolution and make sure both screens are showing up. If they are, then under Multiple displays, select Duplicate these displays. That should get it working for you.

When connected to my Philips 47PFL7422 tv via HDMI cable I get video but no audio. When connected via the VGA port I get both audio and video,


The VGA cable is strictly just for video so the sound is received thru an analogue (RCA) cable. HDMI is an combined digital link but the video card delivers only the video - you must tell the tv from where to get the sound (use the analogue connection already in place) This is done in the menu.

I connect my sanyo 42 inch LCD tv via s-video, no signal on TV


Be sure you changed the source on the tv (i'm guessing you did this), be sure you switch the out-put on your computer to s-video. You can do this in the properties box. If you are running the nvidia video utility, you can set up hot keys to do this. I set up ALT, Z, 3 as my hot key combination. All I do is hook up to my tv, press the three buttons above, at the same time, and the video moves from my pc monitor to the tv.

Hi, =)

Basically what you need is to connect the S/PDIF out from the soundcard\motherboard I/O ports to the 8500 graphics card S/PDIF in and HDMI should now carry both video and audio.

So you have to check the video card. On the top part you'll see a white plastic with 2 pins inside of it. This is the connector SPDIF input from the video card. So what you have to do is look up in your motherboard for a connector with 3 pins that says SPDIF OUT. Even though it looks with 3 pins ONLY 2 of them are needed. You will basically need ONLY a cable like this:

You can get it at a local pc technician shop for 2 bucks only.

Anyway what you do is connect one end of the cable to the two pins from the white connector from the video card and the other end of the cable to your motherboard on the first 2 pins of the SPIDF OUT connector. Now the way to know which ones are the first two, do it this way: The first two considering reading SPIDF OUT meaning that the first one is the one closest to the "S" letter of SPDIF OUT.

If it does not work trying connecting the cable differentely as you might be connecting in a reverse order (positive-negative). Don't worry about burning anything as it's only a sound cable, and it does not carry any power.

Once you do it, go to windows control panel and select SPDIF as your default sound playback.

And you're ready to enjoy sound and video thru HDMI now!

My computer is hooked up to my tv(sanyo ds27425) thru S-video from my radeon 7500 family graphics card, it works well for awhile then the screen goes blue! sound still works and downloads still come in...


Personally I never liked s-video, especially when you have component available. But I think that the pins in the cable on one end is either real dirty, or possibly bent. There could also be foreign debris in the input/output ( TV/PC ) of the adapters. Or the cable you have just is no good. Hopefully it's not the video card itself. Try hooking up a VGA monitor and run it the same amount of time you do with the TV connected.If that's OK, try canned air in the input/output ( TV/PC ) ,and replace the S-Video cable. Good Luck!!

Plasma tv connection to pc


Hi,

when you say you have even changed the settings to pc...do you mean you have used PC..to 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
