Video cables connecting laptop to big screen TV
I am looking for a cable to buy that allows me to watch AVI/MPG files (running on my laptop) on different Big screen TV’'s. I know there are S-VIDEO cables, and VGA cables for sale, but what’s the difference? Also, do I need any software, like a CD with drivers? Or is just a matter of connecting the cable, and fine tuning the monitor/LCD resolution settings on my Dell Inspiron 8600 laptop? Which configurations are necessary? I am running XP. I’m also streaming a lot of video (so the videos are not always on my hardrive when they’re playing). I hope it’s not an issue.
How much are these cables in Europe?
