    I've got a Jaton brand GeForce4 TI4200 video card.
    Lost the dang manual, and manufacturer's website is none-too-helpful.
    Beside the blue VGA connector, there's a round connector, with 9 pins (female). It's not marked, and I initially thought it was for TV-out (S-Video), but I can't find another on the web that looks similar.

    I'm hoping to use it as a TV-out, I guess I'd better figure out what it is first...
    Any help will be very much appreciated.
    Oh yeah, here's a link to a pic:

    Thanks for your time,

    Your correct it is a S-Video out! Did u try connecting it to your tv???
    Sometimes a small adapter is needed to connect it to your tv but they are really cheap! If you get a Visual S-Video kit it should have everything that you need to connect your computer to your tv! But monitors are much better because they have more pixels so higher resolution! But sometimes a tv on beside the computer looks kinde snazzy! But yes you are right that what it is!

    I tried an S-Video cable and it wouldn't fit, I think all S-video connections are either 4 or 7 pins. This output on my video card has 9 pins. Obviously a different style, but for the life of me I can't find an adapter cable to get the signal out to my TV. If anyone knows where I can find one I'd be very thankful. Please see the pic at: tv out connection

    Thanks for any and all help,

    James

    Looks like a DB-9 for a mouse. I have seen some very old video cards with a PS/2 mouse connector on them. What is the make and model of the viceo card??

    Thanks for the responses. I found one that looks similar to the one Jedi Master found, but a little cheaper. Only problem is I'm unsure of the pin configuration, as there are no close-up pics of the business end of this thing.
    So I'm basically going with the pin count (9) and hoping for the best.
    Here's a link to the one I ordered: adapter cable

    I hope it works, I'll report results back to this thread when I get it.
    Thanks again for the helpful replies...
