    Hey I got a small question. I want to hook up my computer to my television and use my tv as a monitor.

    My video card has a S-video output, a yellow A/V rca plug (just 1) and the monitor plug.

    My television only has A/V inputs because it is just my bedroom TV.

    What do I need to hook up the PC to the TV?

    Go to your local Radio Shack and by a S video to RCA adapter. They are cheap and work just fine. You will have to run seperate audio as the S video output is video only. :cool:

    Yep! :D I use a "Y" splitter so I don't have to disconnect my PC speakers.
