PC DVD to TV

Just seen a kit that contains an S-Video lead and audio cables, that then go into a scart adapter and then into the back of a TV (via the scart plug). Is the quality produced on normal TV the same as from a dedicated DVD player would produce. At the moment, some times the DVD player on my laptop skips when the shot displayed is of a very detailed image. Would this also happen on the TV or is it just the moniter that cant handle it? Have got the latest drivers for DVD player installed.

the quality will not be as good as if viewed on the monitor as on a tv the resolution is a lot lower.it should however be comparable to a normal dvd player.processor graphics card and quality of connectors all count though.using a scart adapter only enables the composite signal to be passed through the scart lead and does not convert it to rgb or svideo.if you can use a 4 pin svideo to 4 pin svideo lead you will get a better picture.some graphics cards have a strange little seven pin output meaning you cant use a proper svideo lead.

Yes it would - it's not due to the monitor, but overall graphics processing power (which could be graphics card not fast enough, not enough graphics memory, or main processor not fast enough - or any combination thereof.)
