Getting Dell Notebook to come through TV

  Ben Avery 11:36 20 Aug 2003


I can't seem to get my Dell Latitude CPxJ650GT to work through the S-Video adapter.

It came with an S-Video to Composite adapter and has a headphone out socket for the audio. Last night I tried to plug it through my TV but all I got was the sound from the headphone socket.

I tried rebooting the Dell, several combinations of what order to switch things on and none of them gave me picture, only sound.

I've also tried swapping both the cable and the adapter but it made no difference.

Does anyone know step-by-step instructions to see if this works or make it work properly?

For the record (for those who may use the search facility) the problem was a new driver release from ATI.

This gave me extra options in the Advanced Display Properties and the TV option was there.

Had to change US to UK format so that it would come through in colour as the TV didn't support NTSC. Other than that, fine DVD quality.
