Ok, i have VGA, and Svideo (7pin) on my laptop, but I guess Svideo is more common so I’ll buy that. The Tv at present has an Svideo as well ( but it’s 4pin). Hope 4vs7 pins is not an issue.
My Display properties in Control panel allow various different resolutions, right now I run my laptop at 1280X800pixels, and the TV has various resolutions as well, including 1080.
My other concern is Pal vs NTSC, the laptop is Canadian bought 2nd hand in Bulgaria (NTSC), and the TV is a European HDTV (1 year old Sony).
Before connecting the cables, should the laptop be switched off? Does it really matter?
Finally, what setting should the TV be on? Aux1, Aux2, or AV1, AV2?
