Hiya! I was looking for a geeky forum just like this one here on Google, and now here I am. (Your stuck with me for a while) I'm not a noob with computers at all, there are a few things I haven't gotten into yet. With the summer I hope to get into those unexplored areas.

One question, why can't I read any small text when I hook my tv to my computer its just something I don't understand. Via Component and S-video

Second question, what can I do to become a quick help to this forum. Any ideas to get my name around?

Third question, This seems to be a very active forum, how many posts a day?

P.s. I'm hoping for a warm welcome!

Standard definition televisions can not support high definition content, which is needed to view most content on a standard computer monitor. Out of the two connections you're currently using, only component video is capable of carrying high definition content.

Just to add to Tommy's comment, make sure that you're posting helpful and useful information, not just spamming the forum. You don't want to get a bad name around here.
