I hope this is the right forum for this. Supposedly, it is possible to connect your netbook to your HDTV, but I have yet to figure out how to do this and every tutorial just leaves me more confused.
Here's the basics:
* I have a Samsung Netbook N130 (Windows XP) with a VGA port.
* The TV I want to connect it to is a Panasonic Viera flat screen HDTV, which has no VGA port but has an S-video port.
* I bought a cable similar to this one
and I already have an s-video cable.
* I connected the cables to the tv and computer, hit the [fn] and [f4] keys, but so far nothing has happened.
Before I spend any more money, I need to know if there is some vital piece of the puzzle that I am missing. Did I forget to change settings on my netbook? Do I need a different kind of adapter? Is what I am trying to do even possible?
Any help would be appreciated.
