I have a Dell notebook with a S-video point. Is it possible to playback via a TV screen? If so what cables do I need and how do I set up the TV.
(Not sure what hardware spec for this you would need - just shout)
Yes, use a S-Video cable
It will have an S-Video plug for an S-Video cable and that would work fine. However, if your TV only has composite, you will need either an S-Video to Composite plug or a cable that gives both S-Video and Composite from the laptop [which has a special S-Video plug with a few more connectors for the composite].
