Watch your Computer, Laptop Video on your TV

Watching a video from your computer/Laptop is easy. All you need is DVI(Dual Video Interface) Cable, an RCA Cable, a DVI to VGA adopter if you want to use VGA cable. The
S-Video cable carries only video signals therefore a separate connection to carry sound signals will be required therefore. your Computer/Laptop must have both S-Video(Separate Video) port and arrangements to connect an RCA connector. Almost all modern computers. Laptops and TV sets are equipped with a port called S-Video port and the RCA connection arrangements.  The DVI cables and VGA cables are designed in such a way with pins in one side and socket in the other so that their connections are so easy that even a new operator can connect easily.

The S-video port on your Computer/Laptop is to be connected to the S-video input port of your TV by a round end 4point/7points cable. A VGA cable(15Pins) will be required if you use an old monitor. 15 pin cables give better results. Here you may need the DVI to VGA Adapter. As the S-Video cable carries only video signals therefore connect both your Computer/Laptop and TV with the RCA connector following the color code in simple words,black wire to black socket and so on.
