So I've established what socket my TV has and needed to buy a S-Video lead, I bought a gold plated 2m lead from Panasonic off
the High Street for GB£12. You could probably buy a similar cable elsewhere for cheaper, try Dabs or Maplins.
Panasonic were very good, just in case the cable wasn't the right type they asked me to keep the receipt
I needed to change it.
Anyways enough of the waffle, make sure you have the VGA utility installed on your computer for the SiS630
(if not then download the VGA utility here. Plug the S-Video lead into your
laptop/notebook and the other end into the TV socket,
reboot the laptop.
First time round I fluffed up and did not read the manual and wondered why I was getting no signal to the TV,
then I consulted the manual that accompanied the laptop and Lo and Behold the instructions explain how to do this very clearly.
If you are lazy like me then the rest of the page will show you how to do it. Irrelevant fact: Did you know that 90% of blokes
do not read manuals before launching themselves in operating the damn things - lol - can you blame me when the manual was the size
of the bible.
When you operating system boots into Windows, then go and look in the taskbar for the SiS icon
right click on
it and you get this menu;
Select Display Setting and you will now get a new window popping up looking like this
To get the signal to the TV select TV (LCD is the laptop) and thats it. Mission completed
To revert back to laptop just go through the above steps and select LCD. Good luck and hope you have fun, if you need any
assistance email me
Some users may need a s-video composite convertor if when viewing on tv the picture is in black and white. Basically this cable
is s-video plug one end, and on the other end is three other leads, one coloured red, white (audio) and the yellow lead for the video
I've been informed by a work colleague that the Sony centre on certain UK high streets sell this svideo composite cable.
