S-video cable

S-video cable

I have an HP pavilion DV5220US computer and a JVC television. I plugged the S-video cable into the S-video out on my computer and the other end of the S-video cable into the S-video in port on my television. However I am unble to see files from my computer on the television. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong

Re: S-video cable

It's possible that the S-video out on the computer is set up as a second display. Go to the control panel and click on Display, then the settings tab. There may be a two icons for screens, one of which is grey (disabled). Click on it and enable it.
