TVout vs. S-video...?

Ok here's the deal. I've got an ATI Rage Pro graphic board with a TVout connection. I recently purchased a new tv with s-video connection that I would like to hook my PC into for DVD, DIvx etc. The problem beeing that the two connections differ from each other, the S-video has it's four pin connection, and the TVout on my card has an six pin connector... Also, the "plastic" pin is placed differntly on the two.

Now, I am of the impression that they are not in anyway remotly related. I've tried to connect the two with the S-Video cable by removing the "plastic" pin at the TVout end, but I only get a flickering picture were I can see only difuse details...

Is there any way that can connect the two thru the S-video cable or do I need an adaptor?

Please help...

You need the S-Vid RCA adapter that should have come with your ATI card. It ends in one video and two audio RCA. Those go either directly into your TV or into the VCR.

You need the S-vid to RCA adapter which should have come with your ATI card. Basically it plugs into the end of your S-Vid card and ends in a video and two rca audio cables. Left and Right. Those go either directly into your TV or the back of your VCR.
