Guys my New PC has an S Video out.It also has a component out.I bought a cable which has a connector for connecting to the S video port on one side.On the other side of the cable......there are two connectors similar to the ones we use for Audio/Video connectrs.Now the problem is that my TV has only one input for video along with 2 inputs for audio. However this cable is sort of splitting the S video into 2 ports. I tried connecting any one of the 2 connectors, but there was no display on TV.I have Nvidia GE Force 7300 LE video graphics cardPlz help me out guys.How do i go about connecting it to my TV

U can also get S-Video to 3RCA Cable. Just use Yellow pin out of the 3 RCA.
Just connect it to ur TV thn yellow connector.....
As soon u connect it to ur TV u wil see sm dialog box open in ur PC just set the settings and u r done...
Thn frm system tray where u see NVIDIA icon right click it....
And frm there just in Display screens click Clone option....
U r done.....

I tried connecting with the cable that the computer vendor provided me. He gave me a cable with a S video connector on one side and 2 RCA sockets on the other side.I connected one of the 2 RCA sockets to TV, I was able to connect but the picture was distorted with respect to color.Another problem I faced was that when I played a video on my PC, the video wud be seen on my comp monitor but on TV it wud show blank/black area. This happened with any video that i played .Now I have asked the vendor to give me a S Video to single RCA cable.Lets hope this wud solve my problems.

If your TV had an S-video in, then you would get the best display by just using a s-vido cable, RCA degrades the signal slightly. It's not too noticeable if you have not seen better.

when i was trying to do the same, i read somewhere that u can get the sound as well from the s-video jack...i can't remember the site or the source, will try to find out and if i do, will mention it here...

yes, s-video to s-video is the best option...
