TV Connection

  Cheno 19:43 10 Feb 2008

I know this has been touched on a few times, but was hoping someone could give me some advise on connecting my computer to my tv.

I am not fussed about having the sound just the pictures. My TV has scart input, s-video input and VGA input. Do I just need a 10m VGA lead and a splitter?

Thanks for any help you can provide

My PC is connected to my TV via S-video from my Nvidia Graphics card to S-video on my DVD Player/Recorder, which is connected in the normal way to the TV.

I have an S-video input on my tv so is the best way just s-video from pc to tv? good quality?

The picture from the PC to TV is not as sharply defined as on a normal PC Monitor, but is still pretty good, apart from not being able to read small print. Though my TV is getting a bit long-in-the-tooth, yours may give better results.

BTW, I used my Hauppage TV Card to 'Grab' the TV Pic of Carol Vorderman.

Would a VGA connection be better than s-video though?

I honestly don't know - I have never used VGA to TV.
