Your TV is nothing more than a display device just like a monitor for you computer. If you TV has an S-Video interface on the back you are capable of plugging this into any video controller (e.g. DVD Player, Satellite Receiver, Computer, etc.) that also has a S-Video adapter.

All you need is a long enough S-Video cable. You would also need to change the Video Input on the TV to the S-Video input in order to see what's actually being displayed by the device producing the display.

Hope this helps. I know it's a little general, but if you need more specific instruction please provide more details of what you're tyring to do.

Connect DVD Player to TV?
Connect Satellite Receiver to TV?
and so on...

How can i connect my pc to my flatscreen


There are 2 ways I can think of:
1. Put a PCI TV / Video Card that has S-Video out in your computer. This can be connected directly to your TV if it has a S-Video (you can also buy S-Video to RCA/Video adapters if your flat screen doesn't have S-Video)
2. Buy a PC to Video Converter (also know as VGA to Video converter). This is usually a smallish box that you connect to your PC via cable, then connect to your TV via cable.

If you search the net for PCI Video / TV /Video capture cards and read the description for available functions or search for VGA to TV converters you should find what you are looking for.

What do i need to use t3500 to watch tv

    Determine what kind of video line-in connection the TV has. These connections are typically on the back or side of the TV. You also will need to determine what kind of video line-out connection the computer has.

    Types of video connections include S-Video, VGA, DVI and HDMI. The Resources section of this article offers links to sites that will help you identify the connection type of your TV and computer.

  • 2

    Purchase a video connection cable that is for the type of connection that the computer and TV share. For example, if the TV and computer both have S-Video ports, you should purchase an S-Video cable. S-Video connections are the most common and least expensive option.

  • 3

    Connect the end of the S-Video cable that matches the connection on the computer to the computer video line-out port. Connect the other end to the video line-in port of the same kind on the TV.

  • 4

    Convert video from VGA video to S-Video or even component video. Do this if the two connection ports on the computer and TV are not compatible. You will need to purchase a scan converter box, a VGA video cable, and either an S-Video or component video cable. Connect the cable that will connect to the computer jack to the computer and the converter box, and connect the S-Video or component video cable to the TV and the converter box.

  • 5

    Turn on the TV and use the remote control to select "Input." Some TVs will have multiple selections. Turn on the computer and play a movie or display an image on the screen. As you are scrolling through the "Input" options on the television, you will see a matching image of what you opened on your computer on the TV screen when the correct input is selected.

  • 6

    Adjust the screen resolution on the computer if the image on the TV is distorted, too small or too large. Do this by going into Control Panel and Display Settings on the computer. Select a different screen resolution until the image on the TV fits the TV screen

    How do I get my PC video signal to my TV. I s there a way with a wireless router and how will that be connected to my TV. Thank you.


    Hi, you can use basic video cables to get your TV to act as a monitor. It depends on which ports your computer and TV have. You can use an S-video cable, a serial cable (with the blue connector that many monitors use), an HDMI cable, or a DVI cable. If both your computer and your TV both have any of these same ports, all you need is the cable and you can have your TV receive video signals from your computer.

    Hope that helps!

    Sound from my tv card, skydude doesnt work on my hp laptop, vista home premium


    You haven't mention about the connections you have with the SKYDUDE TV box. TV boxes usually have AV (audio and video) connections i.e., two seperate connections for audio and video signals. If you are using a set top box to connect to the tv box you can connect the "video out" of the set top box to the "video in" of the tv box using a cable. and "audio out" of the set top box to the "audio in" of the TV box using another cable. Some TV boxes don't have the "audio in" option. In that case you have to connect the "audio out" from the set top box directly to the "audio in" of the computer. This pin you can find just near the "speaker" and "mic" connections.

    If you have an S-Video pin in your TV box, you can use an adopter wire to connect two "audio in" and one "video in" connections to the same pin. And you have to select S-Video option in the software installed.

    If you have "RF in" option in your TV box, you can use use AV to RF converter to connect your set top box to the TV box.

    Thank you,

    Hook up a Sony VGC RA 840G desktop to a Samsung 46 inch TV


    Some TV's don't have a VGA input. S-Video cable is more common. Look on the back of your computer an see if you have an S-Video jack. If you have a TV compatible output on your computer, such as an S-video jack, just take an S-video cable and connect it to your computer and your TV. If you do not, then attach your VGA end of your adapter to your computer and use the RCA, S-video or Component Video cable to attach to your TV. After you've made all the connections, make sure you are on the correct TV video input. Press the input button on your TV or remote until you see your computer's signal.

    Computer TV output (RCA) - no colour


    I had the same problem and nothing worked for me until I changed laptop settings to NTSC_M
    So, briefly what I have: S-Video to S-Video cable, laptop (Thinkpad R51, Windows XP, with Intel(R) extreme graphics controler ) and TV set (Samsung, quite old one). The problem was that after connecting my laptop S-Video (4 pin) with S-Video (4 pin) of my TV, I had black and white (no colour) picture.
    Solution is the folowing:
    - connect your laptop and TV (both S-video 4 pins)
    - mouse right click on your laptop desktop screen
    - in the popup menu select: 'Graphics Properties'
    - "Output to"
    - select "TV"
    - properties "NTSC_M"

    keep in mind that if your are not connected to TV, Graphics Properties don't show TV as an option. So, that was very confusing for me, as I saw similar solution somewhere but was not able to find NTSC_M settings on my laptop
    Good luck

    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.
