i have a Video Out to TV question...

Facts:

GeForce 2 w/ video out. It came with what looks like a SVHS to SVHS plug. I have a TV with the three inputs white yellow and red. No other type of inputs. How do I get the picture on the TV? Do they make a SVHS (or whatever plug you call it) to a red yellow and red plug so I can fit it in the back of my TV?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Edit: I have WIN XP Pro

My TV video-out adapter for the GeForce2 came with a S-Video to composite (the yellow RCA connector) adapter. If you don't have one spend $10 at Radio Shack and get one.

(The white and red connectors are for audio.)

SVHS? i'm assuming it's an S-video out. It should look like the one below.



if so, then you need a converter which does s-video to composite out.


edit: the yellow one on the tv is the video, and the red and white are audio.

No, s-video signals look a lot better than composite video signals(which is what the yellow RCA connector is). S-video is capable of carrying higher resolutions and doesn't suffer from the color encoding artifacts that plague composite video.
