Hi, my name is Dave Andrews, and today, I'm going to show you how to display your computer screen on a TV. Its' actually a very simple process. You'll just need to find some sort of cable, that your computer has an output to, and your TV has an input to. Now, most modern TV's have the capability of displaying what is called an S video, and many laptops come with an S-video output. Many new video cards for computers, are having an S-video output, so I have what is here, an S- video cable, and this has a round connector, similar to this one, and to get this displayed on the TV, all I have to do, is take my S-video cable, and I'm going to plug it into the S-video output for my laptop. I'll just pop that in there. Now, on the other side, I have my S-video cable running into the television, and if you will turn your television input over to the S-video input, you can see some of what I'm doing, as I'm working here. I can see it popping up on my screen over there, and I can manipulate this pretty image that I've got, and it's showing up on my television. My name is Dave Andrews, and I've just showed you, how to show your computer screen, on a TV.
