My new Laptop doesn't have s-video out. However, it has a connector for a 2nd monitor.
A local shop has told me that its very simple, all I need to do is get a connector from the monitor out to the TV in. They priced this at about 15$.
Is this true, or is there more to this then they are telling me?
Edit: This may make a difference - the purpose of this is to view videos from my computer - not to use it as a different monitor.
EDIT: This is the response from my computer local retailer:
"Thankfully there are a ton of options now a days for this. A simple vga to s-video or rca adapter does NOT work - this only works on a few nvidia desktop cards made from 1997 to 2005. You can:
buy a converter like http://www.amazon.com/AVERMEDIA-PQUICKPLY-Avermedia-Quickplay/dp/B0000CD08Z/sr=8-5/qid=1172089056/ref=pd%5Fbbs%5F5/103-5125342-5358237?ie=UTF8&s=electronics or http://www.abccables.com/vga-rca-svideo.html - cheap, easy, inexpensive solution, available on ebay and elsewhere for ~ $35-$85.
buy an expensive t60 docking unit, which includes a converter and has a vga out.
Use a television that has VGA input - most TVs manufactured in the past 5 or 6 years have one."
