Check the sockets on your TV to ensure you have to plugged into the s-video socket. Most newer TVs have several sockets and if you plug into the wrong one you will get no signal. Also check the PAL/NTSC settings.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Good advice Fozzy and Budapest! Could I also add that there will be some settings within DISPLAY PROPERTIES that you may have to change, else consult your graphics card manual.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

I was told that s video is just for pics
and not audio
I cant believe that a cable that complex
does nt carry audio too.
