I have an 8800GTS 512

My setup is two lcd screens (22" main and 20" both widescreen) I want to be able to connect my old style tv to my computer via an S-Video cable. Is this possible without having to set my main screen to 800x600. How is the best way to set this up. What display setting will get this working fine? I am doing this so I can watch video tutorials on a larger monitor my old tv that is.


My video card has two dvi and one S-Video.

It's rather easy. I have 2 CRT's, but the process should be the same as when I hooked up my TV.

I used a plain old S-Video cable plugged it in to the video card, then turned it off and or on in the Nvidia Control Panel. It will appear in the "Setup Multiple Displays" section of the NV CP.



Just an FYI, you may only be able to have 2 displays active at a time, so you may have to disable LCD #2 while using it.(it's why I mentioned turning it off and or on in the Control Panel)

Ok the video comes in and out is that the cable? It is a 25' $5 cable. Could I get an S-video pci card? So I could run all three at once?
