    k so i want to use my video card (mx 440) to watch movies in my tv... i only got the s-video cable...

    i have heard about rca cables and stuff...like these ones are the ones you need to put in the tv... but i cant remember any of those... does anyone have a link to a pic of any of those S-video to RCA cables?

    also...does the RCA cable transmit sound as well? or maybe does the s-video transmit sound in the first place?

    thx...

    You can get both seperate.
    The red and white connectors are for the sound into your tv.
    The green one is the sound from your pc.
    The yellows are video.

    Your tv may have the audio and video sockets. They will probably be on the back or in the front panel.

    the cable with three connectors is a combination audio/video cable. the yellow s-video connector converts to an RCA video plug at the other end. the green plug connects to the speaker jack on your PC, and it converts to the red & white stereo plugs at the other end.

    if you want both the video and audio to play through the TV, that is the most convenient cable to use instead of buying separate audio & video cables, adapters, etc. that one covers it all.

    the adapter that darth sushi posted a pic of... i don&#39;t think i would recommend. it has jacks on both sides, meaning that you need to use an s-video cable AND an RCA cable. it&#39;s not convenient. if you just want to buy an adapter, you should get one that has a plug on one side and a jack on the other.

    as for "what config should i use in my pc?" i don&#39;t think anyone is really understanding the question. you need to be more specific. config relating to what? the nvidia display setup? movie player programs?
