Hi there!

I have got a Packard Bell computer with a GeForce 2 MX card with TV-out.

The problem is, however, that I have not been able to find a suited cable. The TV-output has the looks of a PS/2 port, and obviously, it does not work with the standard 4-pin s-video cable.

So the question is this: What cable can I use?

I hope that someone here knows and adds a reply :)

Thanks!

Thanks for replying!

That's what people keep telling me... :)

A standard s-video cable does not physically fit, though any PS/2 unit does... Could it be some kind of mix-up from the manufacturer?

nvidia s-video out ports use a 7 pin connector. The additional 3 are proprietary and their use can differ from manufacturer to manufacture - or so i have read. HOWEVER a standard s-video connector works just great and it does fit.

The thing is that it does not... I do know how to connect an s-video cable, and I do know what a normal s-video TV-out looks like. A PS/2 unit would, for instance, not fit into a normal s-video TV-out.
