There should be RCA jacks on the back. Most older PCs have at least 1 RCA labled TV. It usualy shows what ever is on the desktop just like a regular screen.

My Toshiba laptop has S Video out and my Mitsubishi widescreen has S Video in, so not a problem here. Just depends on what your cards and your TV has for outputs and inputs.

Have an ATI Radeon card in the desktop and it also has S Video out.

Used the G3 on the TV last night and it was great. Just need a USB extension cable to get a bit more perpendicular to the screen.

Try to go to control panel>display>settings>advanced and set the tv in there instead of on the desktop. Mine will not work if I just right click on the desktop and do the setting from desktop, I have to do the setting in control panel>display.

Just a quirk of this video card as the older one that I just replaced would do it from the desktop. Both were/are ATI Radeon but just function differently.
