Using Video Out

Recommended Posts

When you say "headphone plug" I am assuming that you mean a standard 1/8 inch headphone jack. It may seem like a non-explanation but I would suggest going to Radio Shack and asking them for an adapter that converts a standard headphone jack to RCA video. Another good course of action would be to consult the documentation for your video card.

As I have learned through experience with a couple of different cards, making use of the video out to your TV is not always a seamless or easy maneuver. :)

I dunno, it is just the same size as a small headphone jack. And, I would consult doc, if I had it. I bought the video card from someone at work, and I don't have that computer hooked up right now, so I cant even check what it is. It is like a radeon 9100 or somewhere around there, with 128 MB.

Well I'm stumped. I have looked through manuals for several different models of ATI Radeon cards and most of them have either S-Video out only or standard composite (RCA) video out.

I don't think I've ever seen a TV-Out that wasn't S-Video or RCA, unless you have an All-In-Wonder. Those cards usually have a special breakout-box with all the video connections, and just one bigger cable going to your video card. Try looking on the card itself for any identification, and find the manual for it on the company's web site.
