That's a S-VIDEO OUTPUT port only - sorry you'll need a USB adapter to record video.

The Lifestyle 38 has no HDMI output. It all depends on what inputs your TV has, which cable set up would be the best for you. Assuming that your TV has an SVideo input, you indeed can use the SVideo output of the Bose system, to get the DVD picture on your TV. However you will need to connect the audio output of the TV to the TV input of the LS 38 to get the TV sound to play over your LS 38. In case you don't have an SVideo connection on your TV, you can use the composite output of the Bose system and connect it to the video input of your TV (yellow in and outputs)

How do I connect my laptop to tv to use as monitor


It depends on the laptop and the TV. If both have a VGA port, then use a VGA cable between them. Make sure the VGA port is enabled on the computer (possibly in the BIOS) and then set the monitor properties. You may need to reboot the computer to get the TV on.

If the TV has HDMI input and the laptop also has an HDMI port then you need to check the TV specs. Some HDMI ports can accept a signal from a computer (often labeled HDMI/DVI) and others don't. If the HDMI port is compatible with a computer source, then use an HDMI cable between the two. Again make sure the port is active. If TV's HDMI port is not compatible with the computer, you will need a converter.

If the TV doesn't have a VGA port (and the laptop doesn't have any video port other than VGA), then you will need a VGA to component video converter (or VGA to composite video) depending on the inputs of the TV. See http://www.svideo.com/pctocomponent.html for some converters.

Note: the converters are needed since computers output in a different format than the TV input understands. For analog, the computer is RGB and the component video is YPbPr.

A few media PCs might have a TV out port. This would eliminate the need for a converter. Check the specs for the cable you need.

I hope this helps.

Trying to hook up a TV to my Dell inspiron 1420 PC using s-video to composite and there is no output on the TV. I borrowed an expensive converter which works perfectly so the computer IS set up properly...


that actually isnt a true svideo port. it does output video, but it needs a converter that dell sells for about 30 bucks (ebay is cheaper). it plugs directly into the "s-video" port on the computer and splits it off into both an svideo connection and an rca connection.

Connecting computer to tv using usb ports


You cannot,the best thing that you can do is to use the computers video card HDMI output to the HDMI input on TV. The USB is there for things like firmware updates and if your lucky,u may be able to plug in flash drive and view media through it. If your video card has SVIDEO you might be able to use that as well, but HDMI is the way to go if your serious about it, and an HDMI ready video card upgrade for your computer shouldnt cost more than $100,in fact 49 bux at STAPLES right now for a PCIex card.

You can use the yellow RCA cable using an SVideo adaptor. When using dual displays make sure that display number 2 is adtive. To do that move the mouse to display 2 press the right mouse button and select active. Check extend desktop to the monitor to check the signal and press apply. Make sure you are using either an Svideo or RCA signal.

Connecting computer to tv


If your computer has an S-video jack, (and if your tv has one)then all you need is the cable. If not, you need some sort of pc to tv converter, which run a wide range of prices, depending on if your tv has s video or not.
