Hi Guys,

I have an ATI Radeon 7500 which has 3 ports: Standard CRT Monitor, DVI-Out (flat panel) and S-Video out. With the board came a small cable that plugs into the S-Video out port and the other end is coaxail I am in the UK over here we have wirless terrestrail TV and coaxail cable is used to feed it to the TV, just in case it is different in America? Cable?) I used this small cable with an extension to connect the graphx card to my TV. I want to be able to view my PC with the TV. I THINK I have set it up properly on the PC.

I then tried to tune it in on the TV as a new channel, but it wouldent find it :rolleyes: i checked connections but they seemed fine.

If anyone has any ideas could you please tell me :D

Thanx

Howdy there thecaravanman...

Usually when connecting to the Svideo on a TV ( well...at least on mine ;) ) you have to change the video input on the TV either through the setup menu on the TV or the audio/video ( A/V )button on the remote...

I sometimes connect my laptop to the TV via Svideo, and I have to select video 1 on the TV to view it...

HMMM...

Just reread the post and noticed that the cable that you are using has a coax on the other end, I'm not sure that will work if you are connecting it straight from the pc to the TV ( I think you may need a RF converter in order to use it )...

Does the TV have a Svideo input ?

If so get a standard Svideo cable and connect the pc and TV that way...

Hi there!

One thing you'll need to do is:
go into Display Properties--Settings--Advanced
on the monitor or display tab you'll see the setup for the multiple display configuration. You'll simply need to configure it for S-Video OUT


If you're still having problems with your Radeon, Check out the one place on the Internet where you can get ATI Specific help!

Go to RAGE 3D

They have drivers, tips and tricks, and even a message board!



Good Luck!
