Using computer DVD to watch movies on TV

  jameski 10:11 29 Jan 2005

My computer has a DVD player and is running windows XP home edition. The computer has a FX5200 Nvidia graphics card with a S video socket - I think this is also described as 'tv out'. Is it possible to connect the computer to the tv using a s video cable to watch movies playing on the computers dvd and if so how can I do it? Thanks.

The s-video should do it if the tv has a s-video socket dont expect great picture resolution tho.
Also im not sure if you will get sound i have never tried it.

You can also use a programme called TV TOOL with NVidia cards. Search on Google for "TV Tool"

Good to see that the latter includes free P & P because the pack at £22-50 looks to be pretty much the same contents as the pack Aldi Stores sold recently at £5-99.
