  • S-Video help?

    Here is my situation. I am trying to watch movies from my laptop to my TV. I have the S-video cable and plugged it into both the TV and the lappy. But nothing comes on the TV. I dont know what I have to do. I dont have the instruction booklet for the cable so that is out of the question. Can you guys help me out? Thanks

    Re: S-Video help?

    Did you remember to set your laptop's output to S-Video port? Also, did you remember to put your TV's input to the S-Video port?

    You can change the laptop's output by pressing FN+F8 (Usually). Otherwise, go to your display settings and click the Advance button below your color settings. In the new menu, look for a Display tab and change your output setting there.

    But, yes, also make sure you have your TV setup to actually be accepting the S-Video signal. Just press Input on your remote until you reach the right input channel.

      Not sure if this would work.

      If you have ati gpu, try "alt+F5" to toggle between displays. If not try go to the advance setting of the display and see how to toggle between diaplays.

        Make sure you plug it in before turning the computer on, or it will not display anything on the TV. (At least, that's how mine works.)
