Changing outputs to see desktop on tv screen.....

  The Fat Toaster 18:59 08 Aug 04

I'm trying to get my laptop to change it's outputs to a s-video or composite picture so I can shove a jack in the back and see it on TV.

Is the way to do this in the hardware, or can i change it through windows, or even some software to do it?

If you have a graphics card with a TV out port then you can connect it to a TV.

If you go to Display Properties and click on Settings tab and go to Advanced, you should be able to select the output. If not, then look on google for a generic driver or driver for your graphics card.

if you have a scart connector on your tv you can get a scart connector with svideo connection incorporated in it and use a svideo lead from your computer to tv

in advanced options, you can choose output format (NTSC or PAL) and you can purchase jacks which convert S-Video to Composite

Have you changed the settings in the display properties part of control panel particularly chnaging settings to 50Hz since most TV use that frequency.
