i recently upgraded my computer and bought a new video card as well. I am interested in hooking up a 20 inch LCD tv to run my computer off of and i was wondering if this is possible. My video card has a S-video port so i figured it would work but i just want to make sure before i buy the tv. Here is the link to the video card i have:

Just make sure that the video cables that you have will connect between the PC and the TV. It's a real PITA when you get home with the new TV and find you don't have the correct cables!

I haven't tries it yet but when I checked my Poloraid LCD TV it has a VGA (15 pin) connection.
That's the same as the Tower connection that go to my anolog monitor. You will need a cable with both ends having the same type connection is what I was told.

The adapter your using did that come with the video card? Does the TV have an S-video input that you could try instead of the analog?


Edit: You may have a problem because the Video card is outputting a Digital signal "Diversified displays connectivity (DVI, Dual VGA, HDTV-Out)" and your connecting to the TV through non digital inputs. Check your owners manual for the TV

Maybe try using just the vga or dvi as the output, that seems to work fine with my tv. Also, isn't red-green-blue component and not composite (just 1 yellow I thought). If you need a cheap cable, check out monoprice. It's probably the best kept secret when it comes to this stuff.

Have you tried turning down the resolution on the video card? According to your Owners manual one step to take if you are not receiving a display is to make sure the output is set to interlaced and not progressive scan. Also you will notice a button on your remote that is labeled Antennae and under marked DIG ANA make sure its set to Digital. I am sure the problem lies in the resolution since the card is designed for HDTV's which are capable of operating at native computer resolutions. Sadly the manual does not list the resolutions of the TV.
