    HI, I have a few questions and I would appreciate if they could be answered ASAP.

    First all, I have the plug that connects my TV to my laptop, but when I set that up, TV OUT does not work (in other words I do not see my laptop image on my TV).

    Do I need to reboot after plugging the cables from the TV to the laptop?

    or is there some settings i need to change on the computer?

    Also, I would love to know if TV IN is possible (can I watch TV on my laptop)

    Again, its a Dell inspiron 8200 with WINDOWS XP PRO installed and running.

    Appreciate help asap, THAnKS!

    Howdy Sphinx...

    Don't really know about the 8200, but on my 7500, I have to go into Display Properties - Settings - Advanced button - Displays tab and enable the TV out...

    As far as the TV in goes, it would have to have a TV in connector, or a TV tuner card...
