    Yes, it is possible. Unfortunately, the D620 lacks an S-video port, but it does have VGA, so you would have to find an VGA > S-video adapter or similar.

    Not sure you would want to use the TV as a monitor though . . it will be blurrier than your laptop's monitor. Depends on what kind of TV you have though.

    Not only for a monitor but also to play DVD's on the laptop and watch them on the tv. That possible?

    Yes, you can switch over to the TV by using the Fn keys . . I don't have a Dell, but check your users manual. One of the F4, F5, etc keys will have a little blue monitor label on it - hit Fn + that key to switch over to the TV, then hit it again to make it primary.

    The easiest way is to get a D/Dock and use an S-Video cable, or an S-Video to composite cable if, like me, you have an older TV that doesn't have S-Video in.
