    buy a video card with TV-Out. They're $40 for a decent one.

    wow, you're a dumbass...

    svideo *IS* tv-out. If you need composite (yellow RCA plug) then go grab a S-Video > Composite adaptor for $2.

    do that ^^^^

    then goto radioshack and pick up a custom cable that plugs into your headphone jack and has 2 male audio jacks to connect to the TV.
