s-video im sure, theres a little what looks like a tv with arial image above socket. My windows media centre pc has arial in so ive just plugged in the sky arial into that and its worked fine. Laptop doesnt have that, not even sure it has a tv card.

My Laptop (IBM ThinkPad) has a S-Video type DIN connector and it is definitely the Video out connector. There is no video in connector. I thought that this setup was common practice.

If the svhs socket is NOT an input (highly likely) you will need a USB or firwire TV Tuner or Video capture device:cool:
