    On this card, is the top bit the TV out bit? If so, can someone reccomend me a cable to link that to my TV?

    Yes, the top one is TV out. You will need an S-Video Cable, you can pick one up from a local Radioshack or electronics store.

    My graphics card has one, so does that mean I can now use my TV as a monitor?

    edit: My TV has a different hle compared to my laptop hole

    Frigger,

    The one in your 1st Post looks like a match for the one in "S video TV.jpg".

    The 3rd image, "S Video PC.jpg" is like the one on the back of my HP Laptop.

    Is all your equipment UK? OR is the laptop US?

    S-video plugs are not my field of expertise, but since your Vid Card and TV appear to match, getting a 'matched ends' cable should not be a problem.

    The first one is just a pic of google to show what hole I'm on about.
    The second one is a pic of my laptop which I want to link my TV up to.

    I live in the UK.

    Well what about MY question: "Is all your equipment UK? OR is the laptop US?"

    Your laptop plug matches mine but your TV is different.
