You will need the drivers for the graphics card, but other than that, it should work, no problems

You will have to change the TV input source to get it to display.

You need a video capture card to view the telly on ya computer (or to record). For instance I have a Winfast VC100 XP. It uses the s-video connectors.

Any driver can always be found on the net.

Provided your TV has a component port same as the graphics itíll work fine, if your going to get a new card most likely itíll have svideo port on it and most likely if the tv isnít to old that should have svideo on it to. You get a few options with 2 out puts either clone your desktop or split it so you can keep the desktop on the monitor and then you can drag media player on to the second to watch movies.

If you have an NVIDIA card it should work out the box.. IF you goto your property settings for the NVIDIA card there should be an option to switch this option on and all you do is connect it to your pc as you would a DVD player and if you have the right connections.. smile

The yellow phono connection on your Graphics card (tvout) connect to a yellow RCA phono. The three phono leads then connect to the adaptor. (black RCA in this example goes into the white connection)





You need to go to properties on your desktop, go to settings then advanced. Look for you graphics card and find the display/tv out etc, something like that and turn the tv out on. You will lose the desktop picture you get about 10 seconds to keep the settings etc
