Wow! I usually lurk on the boards to fix my PC problems. This time I see a question I know how to answer - yours!I have connected my XP Media Center Dell Inspiron E1505/6400 to my TV.I purchased a cable from Svideo DOT com that makes this happen. Not sure if the link is allowed here.From the website: "Pro 7-Pin SVideo + Audio to 3 RCA Cable cable allows you to connect the 7-pin receptacle on your laptop or computer graphics card to a TV that only has RCA jacks for audio and video."I have the 6 foot long cable which is the shortest one, but I really should have gotten a longer one so it reaches the coffee table! It works great anyway!Just spreading good computer karma around today!HTH
I have tried to use my DIN socket as described above but got no joy.
I think I may need a driver for this but not 100%.
I have searched the web to no avail, any help would be appreciated.
