    Does your TV have S-Video IN?

    If not then tell us what it has.

    The socket next to your video connector is a combined s-video/composite video connector. The outermost 4 holes are s-video. The inner 2 holes on the top row are composite video. The middle hole on the bottom row is unused.

    The Yellow connector on the front of your TV is probably composite video. I can't understand why there's only a white connector for the audio. That's usually just the right channel, there should be a red one for the left channel too.

    You should also be able to pass composite video signals via the scart socket, and s-video too if your tv supports it.
    You will need an adapter such as this:

    If you want sound you have to connect your PC's sound card to the white and red connectors, so you need a 3.5mm jack to RCA adapter.

    That just leaves the video cables.

    If your TV supports s-video on the scart connector then the only additional lead you need is a s-video cable.

    If it doesn't support s-video, you are probably going to have to make up your own cable. I haven't found any adapters and I've only found one supplier of 7-pin mini-din connectors in the UK.

    And of course you need an RCA plug to go with that.

    That's about it, apart from some shielded wire to connect them.
    If you need to go down this route, you will need to know which pin is signal and which is ground, but that's probably best left for now.

    BTW, these are just examples, you can probably get most of these cheaper if you shop around.
