S-Video or DVI?

  CoreDefence 21:15 15 Aug 2007


If you've seen this enquiry on other boards please excuse me but I'm not getting much joy.
I have a 42" Plasma telly and an FS AMILO Pro V3205 Notebook. I want to connect them so I can view DVDs and online video on the telly. Obviously, I need to buy cables but I'm not sure which is most appropriate, S-Video or DVI. Both the telly and the notebook possess both types of port.
As a non-tech, non-gamer I have no idea what the benefits or otherwise of the two connections may be. I just want to watch music video on the big screen or play music from Media Player with the excellent G Force Visualisation on screen.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,

DVI will be the superior method of the two, particularly as you are connecting a PC to a TV.
