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 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.
