This has been answered many times b4 as I see from looking at the past forums but here I go again. I am downloading pay per view sports on line. When I play them I want them to go to my TV so I can relax in my easy chair.
I have HP computer
Intel Pentium D/820 dual processeor
ATI RADEON Xpress 200 graphics card
1024 MB MEM
Plenty of space on hard drives.
I have an S-video output on the computer.
I have composit video input on both my TV and VCR.
HP says I just need a s-video to composit adaptor to do this.

I have the adaptor but no picture on TV. Does not show that it sees TV. I have tried same thing with portable Analog Video Camera.

I have USB ports and Fire wire ports available. Any suggestions or should I just get a second video card with With composit video in and out ports so I can from my vcr to computer also?

I forgot to say I am using Windows XP Media Center edition 2005

Thanks Wally

Are you going from the pc to the vcr or the pc to the tv? either way you need to slect which input you are using through the TV or VCR's menu. Just FYI, the picture you will be getting won't be worth watching...

I did. In my case it is LINE IN 2. Got sound but no picture. I would like to go from the PC to the TV as the games I wish to see are no longer offered on cable. Then I would also like to take movies from my Sharp analog camera and put them in my PC

Sorry for delay. Have been out of town.
S Video out of computer to adapter to RCA plug to composite video RCA plug on TV. YELLOW
L & R sound out of computer to RED and WHITE RCA plug on TV. Can get no picture on TV. DO I need 2 graphics cards?
My second problem of sending pictures from the VCR to Computer has been solved. I installed DAZZLE and it works great. Wally

Go into the ATI Catalyst Control Center and setup the display as extended desktop with the computer monitor as the primary display and the TV as secondary. Also go to TV Properties > Formats > Select by country/region > United States of America.

Then try dragging a window on your computer screen over to the TV.

i am using my tv as monitor from day of my cpu purchase (4 jan 07) (No monitor since ) it is very easy on my jetway 6100 nvidia board with lg flatron 21" tv.
My m board has svideo as well as 3 port video output as in AV cable requires black red green colored (don't know color codes )
i connected black to my tvs video port & then took sound o/p from line out (green) of my mboard then connected same to audio port. thats it no any settings nothing . . . . it is some what difficult to read due pixel problems but zooming in opera or soft such as desktop zoom are sufficient for me.
but some twiking in graphics adapctor options might solve pixel prob e.g. sharpness contrast . .
