Displaying Computer Signal on TV
Greetings to everyone, I'm new to the site.
I just received a computer for Christmas and am still trying to get the best setup. I was trying to get my computer hooked up to my TV for the purpose of watching DVDs, since I don't have a stand alone DVD player. I thought that I had the connections on the computer to make this easy (S Video, Composite). I only have the monitor connector - HP15F(?)(15 pin Female). I found a Y-splitter to run from my video card (ATI Xpress 200) to the monitor on one side, and a HP15? to composite video (Yellow) adapter. I thought I could then run the signal through the TV's Video In (composite). Unfortunately, this isn't working. I'll set the TV to receive the signal, and it acts as though it is receiving something, but even on different resolutions, there is no image.
If you've read through this, and understand what I'm talking about, any help would be greatly appreciated.
