    Default How to hook up notebook to LCD TV?

    What is the procedure to hook up the notebook to a LCD TV?
    Both the notebook and TV have the S-Video.
    I hooked it up via S-Video and matched the input and nothing happened.
    I want to look at some photo's on the big screen.

    Not meaning to hijack your thread, but I'd like to know about connecting to an LCD TV via HDMI-HDMI to watch DivX movies. Is it a hassle to set this up in the drivers? Or do you just plug it in and it works? My TV is HD 720p - how do I scale down the resolution of the output from my 1280x800 screen?

    To output on s-video, you will have to select that device on your notebook. This is generally accomplished by going to Control Panel -> Display -> Settings -> Advanced, and then finding some sort of tab to select your output device. Some notebooks also come with display management software. If your notebook has a "Fn" key in the bottom left, then try something like Fn+F7 to bring it up. It is typically different based on both manufacturer and graphics card type.

    I got it to work on my 50" LCD TV
    I simply went into the Display properties and double click on the #2 square box. #1 square box was the notebook.

    S-Video choose f4 for external output. If you cycle you can also see the image on the laptop and the TV at the same time.

    All you do is double-click the #2 box.

    I'm surprised how sharp the photos are on the 50" screen!

    I would imagine so... but I haven't tried it yet.
