  1. I need help finding a cheap and easy way of connecting my computer to my TV screen to play some games. I have a Nvidia GeForce 6200 PCI with a DVI port, D-Sub port (which I'm already using for my monitor), and a S-Video port. I have a router-like thing that has Audio and Video jacks, Antennae In and Out jacks, and a S-Video jack as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks,

    It will all depend on what inputs your tv has really!!!!

    Then an s-video to s-video cable will do the job!!!!

    rik is correct.

    You should be able to simply connect the SVideo jack on your 6200 to your TV, go into the Forceware drivers to set the operation mode for TV-Out and be in business.

    The only thing left is audio, which if you're happy with your current PC speakers, you're all done. If you wish to tap into your PC's audio, you can buy a cheap adapter for your soundcard from Radio Shack that splits a single mini-phono jack (output on your soundcard) to two rca's (red/yellow cables) for input into your tv or a/v system.
