    Hi everyone. I want to use my television to be able to view my computer as another screen. From what I've read so far, I understand I could use an S-Video cable, but that it won't look very good. I'd gotten the following information from another website, and what I want to know is what cable can I use to plug into the VGA port, and connect it to the television:


    "To get a real desktop on your TV, you'll need an HD connection-HDMI, DVI, VGA or component. It all depends on what connectors your TV and PC have. If you have a VGA connector on your PC, you're all set. Just hook-up to your regular VGA portor install an A/B switch so you can switch between your TV and monitor. Or add a VGA splitter so you can use both at the same time. If your computer has a Video card, then you probably have more flexibility. If not, then you can add a video card with more connectors."


    Thnx!

    For the tv, I have an HDTV RCA with S-Video. I'm not sure what it's called but there is the three colored ports of yellow, red, and white.
