making my tv the same screen as my monitor

November 22, 2009 at 15:58:06
Specs: Windows XP
My computer has HDMI and DVI outputs.
My TV has an s-video output.
I have a HD cablebox with HDMI output.

I was trying to get my computer screen to show up on my TV. However, since my TV only has s-video, I was hoping I could just connect my computer to my HD cablebox and have that work.
I connected my computer (DVI) to my HD cablebox(HDMI). And my cablebox is hooked up to my TV of course. But I still can't get my computer screen to show up on my TV. What can I do?

There are adapters that would make it possible, but they run hundreds of dollars. What kind of computer? Laptop or PC? If its a PC you can buy a video card with S-Video out for under $50. That would solve your problem. If you aren't comfortable installing it yourself, buy the video card from a place like Best Buy, and their techs will install and test it for you.
