Default Re: What are the cables called so that that I can connect laptop to HDTV?

Like I mentioned above, those passive VGA -> S-Video converters aren't guaranteed to work. What settings are you currently using?

lol k Im trying to connect my lenovo x200 to an old 25" panasonic TV that only takes S-Video so i bought a VGA to S-video converter cable and then a male to male S-video cable and plugged that into the TV(S-Video) then I got a audio cable and plugged that into the TV as well but then I dont know how to make it work. I go to VIDEO 2 on the TV but nothing shows up and I set the output on the laptop to MONITOR, but still nothing shows up
