    Hi, this is actually an Svideo out from a PC (identical to a S video out on most cam corders, (the round output))..


    I have a Sony trinitron TV. It has 2 video inputs on the front of the TV. both look the same as a video in ( like the Red and White PHONO inputs on a stereo) but one is black and one is yellow.

    I need to know what kind of lead I need to connect the S video to the TV?


    Are the tv inputs, Video and a Composite video in?

    any help welcome.

    thanks,
    JJ

    The yellow phono will be composite in and the black will be mono audio in.
    If you output the video via an S-Video socket to a composite input then you will only get a black & white picture.

    Just found what I was looking for :thumbsup:

    To get a colour picture on your TV without an S-Video input you need to connect an S-Video lead from the PC to This and then a composite lead from it to the TV.
    The picture will only be at composite quality, but at least it should work.
