Question about Sanyo DS27800 27" TV
I just bought an S-Video cord to adapt my laptop computer to the TV because the TV has an S-Video jack along with the audio/video. I can not get the S-Video to open on the TV, even though I can get to the regular Video screen for my DVD player. How do i get the S-Video to come up? Sanyo Model # DS27880
Go to your graphic card settings located in the display properties menu, click "properties". You'll be able to see the settings of your laptop's graphic card. Choose "advanced",then select your "TV" as a target screen. Your S-Video cable has to be plugged in to your laptop when you are searching for the Laptop Display/TV selector I mentioned above. Also where this selector is located depends on what graphic card you have.
