Here is my problem.
I have a HP Pavilion dv1464dx Laptop running Window 7 Home that I need to
connect to a projector that has only an Svideo input. The laptop has no
Svdeo output, only a VGA jack for connecting to an external monitor. It
works. I have an VGA to Svideo adapter (the inexpensive 'Y' type) that I
connect to the laptop's VGA output and then connect its Svideo cable to one
of the Svideo inputs on my TV. Windows 7 detects the TV and allows me to
turn Presentation on. The TV accepts Svideo input just fine from my Cox
cable box. However, with the laptop connected as above I keep getting a 'No
Signal' message from the TV.
The laptop has a Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chip set adapter which,
according to the specs, does support TV Out. Use of Fn+F4 doesn't yield a
picture on the TV. I am beginning to think something is inhibiting the TV
Out feature of the adapter. Could it be Windows 7 or maybe because HP
hardwired it out?
Is there anyone here who has successfully used the 'Y' type VGA to Svideo
adapter? If so how did you do it? Will I have to buy one of the more
expensive adapters priced at around $70?
The real question is this. Can someone help me get my laptop's VGA output
connected to the Svideo input of the projector?
I will really appreciate help.
Re: Connecting a Laptop to a Projector via Svideo
What's the Make&Model of this projector, it would be an odd
projector that only had s-video inputs?
If you are actually stuck with s-video, then you need a scan
