  1. Hello. I have connected my s video cable to both my pc and my tv firmly, as well as upgraded my driver. I am running windows xp media center edition 2002 (sp2) using an intel 82945G Express Chipset Graphics Controller. My graphics controller has both the red white and yellow out as well as a s video out. However, I my computer doesnt seem to recognize the connection and it only shows 1 moniter... What on earth do I do?

    You may need to upgrade your video by installing a PCI or AGP video card inorder to make this work

    Did you reboot the computer after connecting it to the TV?

    Also, does your TV support S-Video (See the friggin thread right below this one!)? You may have to use these colored RCA cables instead.
