    I have a HP 2.4ghz Intel desktop, 2Gb Ram, Soundblaster Platinum and a Radeon 9250 Graphics card with VGA, DVi, and S-Video.

    I want to use the VGA cable to a monitor and connect the S-video to a TV (I am having to use a S-Video-Component converter). The component input on the TV is AV3, I have tried to enable the TV using the software, but it does not detect a TV is there. If I force it to detect - I still get no picture on the TV.

    Ultimately I want to connect the s-video out to a video recorder component input, which in turn is connect to a 4 output device so I can send whatever I am doing on the Pc TO 4 tvS.

    But I can't even get a picture on 1 TV :confused:

    Any help greatly appreciated...

    In the ATI Catalyst Control Center set the Primary display 1 as your computer monitor and the Secondary display 2 as the TV. Set it up as Extended Desktop, then drag a window from the monitor over to the TV to see if it works.

    If your TV just flickers, go to TV Format Selection, click select by country/region and put in United States of America.
