What connection would I need to go from my laptop to my TV? Its a standard def.
What kind of laptop? I have a Dell XPS M1210 and was reading that I needed to buy a special S-Video cable to hook up to my TV. A standard S-Video cable did not work in my case...
I have a Sony Vaio. Its about 3 years old
S vid should work?
It doesn't look like S-vid will fit
That's the PS2 port then. Does the laptop even have video out?
What's the model number?? Maybe we can look up the specs for you ...
Just took a look and all I see is VGA out (Monitor).
i can't vouch for this product, but it exists. vga -> s-video/composite
EDIT: the forum i'm reading that referred to that product has people complaining about it not working. apparently you need a converter if your video card doesn't specifically support TV out through vga. converters are out there.
wow, thanks a lot man.
I have a VGA to component and it doesn't work.
