    I have an S-Video port on my computer and I am going to run it to my 46" Projection TV.

    What I want to know is how to switch b/t S-Video out and the VGA out so I can switch between my monitor and TV - is there a keyboard combination I have to hit (like on a function key on a laptop)?

    I will only be viewing video files on my TV (so it won't be too often that I use the S-Video out port).

    I remember doing this a while back, but it seems like I had to do a restart and unhook my VGA connection to get the S-Video feed to work - there must be an easier way.

    Thanks ALL!!!

    Depending on the card, I am personally better versed with ATI, but I know my Nvidia also, you can set up a dual display and set the S video to play all movies at full screen, and through the control disable the TV when not in use.
